Hopefully it is just a weird glitch that means nothing and payments still go out Wednesday.

Is the unresolved issue showing: PUA- Other Program Eligibility?

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

Yes, that one, but that everyone has, it just means you are added for the $600.

2 others were, Lack of work and Working full time.

Which neither make sense as I am not working, but based on some people on the facebook group, it is likely just a weird glitch since most people have them and should be ok. Hopefully still get paid on Wednesday.

People that have issue that shows DUA unemployment appears more serious and you need to call in and get fixed.

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

Hi guys.

I live in nevada.There are alot of things confusing about pua. I have some questions please help me out.

Question. 1 If PUA is for people who lost their job due to covid 19 then how come uber drivers qualify ? They can still drive uber now if they want to right ?

Question 2 Is there income threshhold for qualifying ? meaning if you had made say only $5000 last year would you still qualify ?

Question 3 My provable income in 2019 are only $3000 from driving lyft(December to march) . $2000 for working at the restraunt(july to agust) and $1000 for doordash(whole year). If i apply for PUA and just say I wanted to work as a waiter in march 2020 but couldn't because all the restaurants closed would I qualify ?

If you worked as a waiter you would apply for regular Unemployment since you would be employed by a restaurant. PUA is for self-employed, gig workers, etc.

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

Those are good questions, I don't really know for sure. There are several good FB groups to follow and see what people are saying with all kinds of situations.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/211774933497860/

Just request join and you will be in when they approve shortly after.
Near the top is the PUA section, I would look thru that, there are a ton of posts there tho you have to click view previous comments.

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

"According to the latest DETR news release, PUA claimants must be able and available to work, have prior earnings in Nevada or a job offer to work in Nevada and must not be eligible for any unemployment insurance benefits.

The first payments are expected to be made beginning Wednesday. PUA claimants can contact the call center for questions at 800-603-9681 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturday. Resources and updated information on the PUA system can be found online at detr.nv.gov/pua "

Saw this on the NV FB group this morning. Hope that is all true, would mean the majority of us with these claim issues that popped up are all good and should still get paid this coming week.

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

Senator Mitch McConnell is threatening to discontinue Pandemic Unemployment after July.
This will be very dangerous to families that cannot return to normal work ( like poker ) until a vaccine is available.
Please write your Senators and the White House about this issue.

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

Anyone file in California? I have to select a Work Type, and the only choices for Gambling are Cashier, Broker, Dealer, and Monitor. I have to choose one of those and it won't let me type in anything.

Any suggestions is very much appreciated!
My first suggestion would be to file as self employed for 2019 tax year. Use your poker winnings as self employment income. Write off your business losses Just be honest with everything. Which doesnt prevent you from being creative. There are more complex strategies available as well when you are self employed. If you dontnt have the interest in learning to take full advantage of the tax code, youd probably be better off getting your taxes done for you.

Pretty easy to see the difference. Most people in the general workforce are suckers for one reason or another. Or am i being too obtuse for you?

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

They are doing something to the site right now, most everyone in the FB group got these weird codes that said IP investigation and everyone was freaking out. After someone got thru on the phone, it was just a code for webmaster that is working on an issue and not a problem. Maybe that is why it wasn't working for you.

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

I dont know ill just go back to waiting until they get this figured out which is probably never. Also got excited because i got through on the phone instead of it just ringing busy like it has for the past 2 months only for it to just hang up on me after waiting like 45 minutes lolol, that was the final straw.. If i get it i get it if not whatever

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

I just filled out all the info, it was quick and easy. I filed for regular unemployment, not gig work. I worked at Sahara Las Vegas for a couple weeks in October and made like $1200. I also put in my dealing job from Washington that I had for years and actually made good money. I received this email. Looks like good news. Assuming I qualify for the minimum of $181 because its based off of my Sahara job. However the email is saying it doesn't have income info for me.


Now I have to file weekly claims... all the way back to February 2nd?

Re: Poker players eligible for unemployment under the new stimulus bill?

You are saying you filed for regular at http://ui.nv.gov/?

So log back in and i am guessing it will show ineligible now. That is why it is saying you qualify for PUA which is for people who traditionally don't qualify for regular.

If that is the case you need to go to https://www.employnv.gov/ and sign up there for PUA and if approved then you put your weekly in there.

Just check your status on the regular UI site if that is where you applied and see what is says.
