Texas Workforce Press Release


DATE: September 15, 2011 PHONE: (512) 463-8556

Disaster Unemployment Aid Now Available in Six Texas Counties

Workers affected by wildfires in Bastrop, Colorado, Houston, Leon, Travis and Williamson counties can apply for assistance

AUSTIN -- Victims of wildfires in five additional counties may now apply for Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) with the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) as a result of an expansion of the Presidential Disaster Declaration (FEMA 4029-DR). Workers who lost their jobs and self-employed individuals who have been unable to work due to wildfires in Colorado, Houston, Leon, Travis and Williamson counties may apply for DUA. Bastrop County had previously received the declaration.

Individuals affected by Texas wildfires in these counties should apply for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits by logging onto ui.texasworkforce.org or by calling a TWC Tele-Center Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (CST) at 1-800-939-6631. Individuals should specify that their applications are related to the wildfires.

Victims of the wildfires in Colorado, Houston, Leon, Travis and Williamson counties must submit applications for DUA by Oct. 17, 2011, while the deadline for Bastrop County victims remains Oct. 13, 2011.

Wildfire victims who have since left the area can visit any Workforce Solutions Center and apply for DUA.

DUA, which is UI benefits made available especially for victims of disaster, is available to individuals who:

•have applied for and used all regular unemployment benefits from any state, or do not qualify for unemployment benefits;

•worked or were self-employed or were scheduled to begin work or self-employment in the disaster area;

•can no longer work or perform services because of physical damage or destruction to the place of employment as a direct result of the disaster;

•establish that the work or self-employment they can no longer perform was their primary source of income;

•cannot perform work or self-employment because of an injury as a direct result of the disaster; or

•became the breadwinner or major support of a household because of the death of the head of household.

Applications for DUA filed after the October deadlines will be considered untimely, unless the individual provides good cause for applying late.
