If the additional Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) fund runs out of money, will I still get the benefits?

FEMA notified KDOL that the last week for LWA is the week ending September 5, 2020 due to the fund’s depletion. This is not a KDOL decision and KDOL cannot pay LWA benefit payments for any benefit weeks after September 4, 2020.
