Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) provides temporary unemployment benefits to people whose jobs or work hour losses are a direct result of the disasters. DUA is available for employees of Malibu businesses, people who are self-employed, and people employed domestically, such as housekeepers, nannies, gardeners, etc.
Affected individuals are encouraged to apply for DUA through the California Employment Development Dept, which will first check to see if applicants can qualify for regular State unemployment benefits. The deadline to apply for DUA has been extended to March 15, 2019.
Survivors who may be stressed, anxious or depressed following the wildfires can receive free disaster crisis counseling. Survivors who wish to speak to a counselor may call 800-985-5990 or text Talkwithus@66746. Counseling does not require registering with FEMA.
