Texas Workers May Be Eligible For Disaster Unemployment Benefits
As a result of FEMA’s major disaster declaration for Texas and Hurricane Harvey, federal law provides for disaster unemployment benefits (DUA) for certain displaced employees and self-employed individuals.
DUA is paid with federal funds, is not charged to state unemployment insurance trust funds and is not charged back to employers.
The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) issued an announcement explaining that DUA benefits are available for the period beginning August 27, 2017.
