Individuals affected by the Camp, Hill and Woolsey fires who file unemployment insurance claims between November 8, 2018 and May 8, 2019 will not have the one week waiting period, so they can get benefits right away. The Unemployment Insurance program provides partial wage replacement benefits to workers who lose their jobs, or have their hours reduced, through no fault of their own.
