Unemployment Benefits and the Coronavirus
Please note: The extra $600 a week in unemployment benefits officially ends on July 31, 2020. This benefit was federally provided and does not directly impact the benefits provided by your state.
The federal government has allowed states to change their unemployment benefits laws. It lets them provide unemployment benefits for situations related to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
And, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act has expanded benefits further. It authorizes:
Self-employed workers and gig workers to receive unemployment benefits All unemployed workers to receive an extra $600 a week for up to six months Unemployed workers to get an extra 13 weeks of benefits beyond the number a state currently provides Contact your state’s unemployment insurance program for more information and to apply for benefits.
