Please note that, per NY State regulations, all claims initiated in 2019 will continue to be paid benefits based on 2019 benefit provisions through the duration of the claim, even if the claim extends into 2020. For example, if a bonding claim is initiated in December 2019 for 8 weeks, even though the claim period extends into 2020, since the claim was initiated in 2019, 2019 benefit provisions will apply for the duration of the 8-week claim.
