If you were/are unable to work or were/are prevented from working because of Hurricane Irma, you may be able to recover your lost wages.

You may be able to recover wages under the Disaster Unemployment Assis­tance (“DUA”) — a program that provides “financial assis­tance to individuals whose employment or self-employment has been lost or inter­rupted as a direct result of a major disaster declared by the president of the United States and who are not eligible for regular unemployment insurance benefits.”

Since a disaster was declared, you have until October 16, 2017 to file for DUA for the following counties: Alachua, Baker, Bradford Brevard, Broward, Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Collier, Columbia, DeSoto, Dixie, Duval, Flagler, Gilchrist, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Hernando, Highlands, Hills­borough, Indian River, Lafayette, Lake, Lee, Levy, Manatee, Marion, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Nassau, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Putnam, St. Johns, St. Lucie, Sarasota, Seminole, Sumter, Suwannee, Union and Volusia.

If you need additional assis­tance with filing for DUA please call 1–800-385‑3920.

If your claim is accepted, you’re guaranteed at least 50 % of the average benefit in Florida. DUA can last up to six months.
