This link to the Georgia Department of Labor website provides up-to-date information on how the Georgia DOL is managing unemployment claims, including the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation program, which provides $600 in additional benefits per week to qualifying recipients of unemployment, and the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, which will provide unemployment assistance to those who are not traditionally eligible for unemployment. Please be aware that employees of nonprofits that are not typically eligible for unemployment because their employer does not contribute to the unemployment system, such as nonprofit employers with fewer than 4 employees, may be eligible for benefits under the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program.
