  • News Release – Indiana Unemployment $300 LWA payments will start Monday, September 21st…
    Updated On: Sep 14, 2020

    The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) will begin making Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) payments to eligible claimants beginning the week of Monday, Sept. 21st.

    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 Aug. 1st to the week ending Sept. 5th. No LWA funding will be available to states beyond that time period. 

    Indiana will make payments the week of Sept. 21st, covering the period of Aug. 1st to Sept. 5th, for those eligible. For those claimants with issues holding payment, DWD will make payments, pending funding availability, once eligibility is established.

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