Do I include unemployment benefits in my income calculation?

That depends on the source of the unemployment benefits. Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) benefits should be included in the household income calculation. Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) and benefits authorized under the “Memorandum on Authorizing the Other Needs Assistance Program for Major Disaster Declarations Related to Coronavirus Disease 2019” (PM) should not be included as these are excluded as outlined in Community Planning and Development Notice CPD-21-03.
