Unemployment for the Self-Employed (Pandemic Relief)

This guidance is for general informational purposes only, and is not to be used as a substitute for relevant state statutes or regulations.

Updated April 17, 2020

The CT Labor Department is working diligently to analyze the federal pandemic relief details found within the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act signed into law on 3/27/2020. We appreciate your patience as we await guidance from USDOL, and work with technical experts to develop additional programming within the CTDOL Unemployment Insurance system to accommodate the new federal relief programs.

At this time we have no additional information regarding the timeframe within which we will implement these federal programs, but we are working hard to serve the citizens of CT and ask that you check these FAQs DAILY for updates. Thank You.
