Self-employed, independent contractors eligible for help
Pandemic Unemployment Assistance is now available from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for workers not traditionally eligible for unemployment benefits. Those members of the workforce may include the self-employed, independent contractors, workers with limited work history, and more.
To be eligible for the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, individuals must be unable to work as a direct result of the coronavirus public health emergency.
