-If you've lost your job and aren't sure how you will pay the mortgage or rent it’s important to get in touch with your lender/landlord immediately! If you expect to be late or unable to make your monthly payment contact them ASAP. Many are offering flexible solutions to help at this time so honesty is the best policy.
-If you aren't sure when you will be able to get back to work, file for [unemployment NOW] (https://www.usa.gov/unemployment#item-214601)! When hardships occur unemployment will always take longer so beginning the process sooner rather than later will help you in the long run.

I have had many jobs & responsibilities in my diverse career, but the last 22 years were for a small single owner company that was like a second family. My only regret was that I stayed until almost 70 years of age instead of using my retirement years to pay attention to my 3 adult children & my 3 grandchildren. Shame on me!!!

This is about to be the most substantial economic stimulus measure in modern history. Here are five significant takeaways.
The government will send $1,200 in direct payments to taxpayers with incomes up to $75,000/year. Families will receive an additional $500 per child.
Unemployment benefits will grow and be available to many more Americans. Expansion of the benefits will extend job insurance by 13 weeks and include a four-month enhancement of benefits. It has been broadened to include gig workers and freelancers!!
Small businesses are eligible to receive emergency loans if they pledge NOT to lay off their workers. Loans would be forgiven if the employer continued to pay workers for the duration of the crisis.
Larger companies can receive a government bailout loan, but there are several strings attached.
Struggling hospitals will receive aid. $100 billion will be available to hospitals and health systems across the country. It also includes billions more to provide personal and protective equipment and increases support for health care workers, testing supplies, and new construction to house affected patients.
