UPDATE (MAY 15): Nevada Department of Training and Rehabilitation is asking people to refrain from attempting to file PUA claims until Saturday.

According to DETR, the website for PUA claims,, will not be live until Saturday. As well, the phone line for assistance (1-800-603-9681) will also not be active until Saturday.

Upon launch, DETR said staffers assisting with the PUA phone line will only be answering PUA-related questions. Anyone with a regular unemployment question should not contact this number.

DETR on Friday also said it was informed that it is one of seven states launching systems for PUA this week. One other state, according to Heather Korbulic, is not planning to launch a system until May 27. However, Korbulic did not specify which state.

Payments for PUA claims are expected to begin May 23 and will include back pay, DETR said.

The agency also noted that PUA funds are federal funds and there is no risk of them being exhausted.
