Disaster Unemployment Assistance Available for Those Affected by the Severe Storms and Flooding in Maine December 17 – 21, 2023.

MAINE (STL.News) Employees or self-employed individuals in Maine who became unemployed as a direct result of the severe storm and flooding may be eligible to receive Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA).  Eligible survivors are encouraged to apply for disaster assistance.

Common eligibility requirements include: you were working for someone else or were self-employed in the disaster area when the disaster occurred; you lost your job or your place of work was affected, or you are unable to get to your place of work as a result of the damage caused, or you lived in the area of the disaster when the disaster occurred and were unable to get to your workplace as a result of the disaster.
