* The Maryland Department of Labor implemented a change on June 11 to expedite the processing of claims. Previously existing regular UI claims may be reclassified as PUA claims. These reclassified claims are not new claims and are excluded from the weekly totals in the chart above. However, per the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL)'s reporting guidelines, the total number of claims reported for the week includes these reclassified claims.

** The State of Emergency was declared in Maryland on March 5, 2020. Regular unemployment insurance claimants who became unemployed after that date have begun to exhaust their 26 weeks of benefits and become eligible for Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) benefits. This is reflected in the increase in PEUC claimants reported in these claim numbers.
