When did the additional Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) start, and how long does it last?

LWA payments will be available to eligible claimants for the weeks ending August 1, 2020 to September 5, 2020. FEMA notified KDOL that the last week for LWA is 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 5, 2020.
