COVID-19 Update

Dear Neighbor,

In order to support your families being able to take a deep breath, turn away from constant news updates, and create a new temporary normal, my office will continue posting a near-daily update on the COVID-19 public health emergency to our website and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

It is my hope that one reliable update each day will allow you to take a deep breath, oversee all that is happening in your own life and home, and have a reliable source of news you can count on to be up to date and accurate. As always, previous updates are on our website and linked beneath the graphic below. 

My greatest concerns right now are your lives and livelihoods. We are working hard to keep you and your loved ones safe, and to fight for our small businesses in an unprecedented crisis. 

In solidarity,

Rep. Robyn Vining

Unemployment Assistance: PEUC Available

The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) made the following announcement:

Wisconsin residents who have exhausted their regular unemployment insurance (UI) benefits may now apply for Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC). The launch of this program marks the third and final benefit available through the CARES Act.

PEUC provides up to 13 additional weeks of payments to individuals who have exhausted 26 weeks of regular UI benefits or had their benefit year expire without requalifying for a new benefit year. Individuals who receive PEUC will also receive Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), an additional $600 to their weekly benefits through the week ending July 25, 2020.


  • You have exhausted your regular UI, then you will need to file a PEUC initial claim.
    • You will see a link on the dashboard to file a PEUC initial claim after you log into your claimant portal. If you do not see a link in your claimant portal, then it is not yet time for you to apply for PEUC.


  • You have a pending unemployment application OR
  • You are still receiving your regular UI benefits.
