DOL issues UIPL 20-20 regarding full federal funding of first week of unemployment compensation

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

This UIPL provides the states with operating, financial, and reporting instructions for the full federal funding of the first week of unemployment compensation (UC) authorized by section 2105, Temporary Full Federal Funding of the First Week of Compensable Regular Unemployment for States with No Waiting Week, of the CARES Act of 2020, P.L. 116-136.

Under section 2105 of the CARES Act, a state is eligible to enter into an agreement with the Department if the state law provides that compensation is paid to individuals for their first week of regular UC without a waiting week. States without a waiting week provision in its existing state UC law may participate, but states with a noncompensable waiting week provision in its existing state UC law may participate only if they demonstrate certain specific actions (UIPL 20-20, April 30, 2020).
