PA CareerLink® Montgomery County

News & upComing Events!

  • The Unemployment Compensation (UC) system has transitioned to a new and  easy-to-use platform designed to simplify and speed up the claims process. Claimants now have access to more information and new self-serve options that will reduce the need to contact the UC customer service center. The new system will make sure people get the benefits they need while also reducing the opportunity for fraud.

Programs that will transition to the new system are:

Unemployment Compensation (UC)
Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC)
Extended Benefits (EB)
Shared Work or Short-Time Compensation (STC)
Trade Readjustment Allowances (TRA)

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry will continue to host a series of workshops to help ease the transition. If you cannot attend a live session, a recorded version is also available here.

Operational Updates as of 6/1/2021

  • Short-term online and in-person (where available) training programs
  • Support services which can include direct service referrals through our partnership with Community Connections, assistance with transportation (as needed), supplies/equipment needed for training or employment, and other supports needed to successfully complete their online training and enter employment (we are prepared to go as close to the edge of the box without going outside of it for support services).
