As of today, the Department of Labor website is officially accepting Pandemic Unemployment Compensation applications. State Senator Will Haskell (D-Westport) encourages self-employed people, independent contractors and gig workers to file for unemployment benefits by visiting FileCTUI.com.
“My constituents have waited for weeks to apply for unemployment benefits, I want to get the word out that the brand new application portal is now active on the Department of Labor’s website,” said Sen. Haskell. “Every day, my team fields calls from constituents who are struggling to afford basic supplies due to a sudden loss in income. These families need help, and I hope they’ll apply right away. If constituents run into any issues, please don’t hesitate to call my office at 860-240-0068.”
