LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Multiple unemployment benefit recipients in Nevada reported not receiving their final pandemic assistance benefits Tuesday morning.
The $600 benefit provided by the CARES Act is set to expire July 31. However, multiple people registered with the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation told FOX5 they did not receive their July 25 payment.
The federal payment is usually paid out early Tuesday mornings, according to recipients. It isn't immediately clear why some people didn't receive their payment.
In a statement, the agency said "the issue is expected to be resolved tomorrow and all payments will be caught up shortly after the issue is resolved."
Nevada DETR issued the following statement on the matter:
DETR has identified an error in the UI system and staff is working to correct the issue, which has resulted in some claimants reporting they have not received the additional $600 in federal pandemic unemployment compensation this week. The issue is expected to be resolved tomorrow and all payments will be caught up shortly after the issue is resolved. DETR will share further updates if additional issues arise.
As a reminder, claimants file for benefits reflecting the previous week, meaning the first day to file for the week ending July 25 began on July 26. All claimants who are eligible for the federal pandemic unemployment compensation payment will be paid the benefit, including those eligible for retroactive benefits.
For self-employed workers, the deadline for DETR to pay claimants is Tuesday, as ruled by Judge Barry Breslow who adjudicated a lawsuit that several claimants filed against DETR and the State of Nevada for delayed Pandemic Unemployment Assistance payments.
"DETR is actively working with the vendor to comply with the court’s order and support Nevadans during this difficult time," said a spokesperson for the department on Tuesday.
