LWA Unemployment Benefits To Be Paid Beginning Sept. 21

Since March 8, DWD has paid a total of $4.9 billion to nearly 670,000 Hoosiers.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) – The Indiana Department of Workforce Development will be making payments to eligible Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) claimants beginning the week of Monday, September 21.

LWA is funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide $300 per week to supplement unemployment benefits for those who have an unemployment benefit amount of at least $100 and are out of work due to COVID-19.

LWA funding will only cover the six-week period from the week ending August 1 to the week ending September 5, for those eligible. For those claimants with issues holding payment, DWD will make payments, pending funding availability, once eligibility is established.

Since March 8, DWD has paid a total of $4.9 billion to nearly 670,000 Hoosiers.
