You have until Oct. 6 to backdate any eligible weeks of PUA benefits. This means:
- If you filed your initial PUA claim on or before Dec. 27, you can backdate as far as Feb. 8, 2020.
- If you filed your initial PUA claim after Dec. 27, then you can backdate as far back as Dec. 12, 2020.
After Oct. 6, you will no longer be able to make any changes or backdate any of your weeks for your PUA claim.
You cannot backdate any of the other temporary, pandemic-related federal programs.
