  • Coronvavirus Unemployment Benefits Provisions Update

    Coronvavirus Unemployment Benefits Provisions Update

    The Coronavirus Relief, Aid and Economic Security (CARES) Act extends unemployment insurance benefits for qualified people, and provides up to thirty-nine (39) weeks of unemployment compensation to workers who would not normally qualify for unemployment, but whose ability to work has been directly impacted by COVID-19.

    People who are not eligible for regular unemployment payments under state or federal law, including the self-employed, people seeking part-time work, those who have used up their right to regular unemployment or extended benefits, or those with insufficient work history
    are now able to qualify for unemployment.

    In order to receive payments, people in this new group must self-certify why they would not normally qualify for unemployment benefits, and that the reasons for their unemployment are directly related to COVID-19. For those who are currently eligible for unemployment benefits under state or federal law, the CARES Act extends payments for up to thirteen (13) weeks beyond the normal deadline, as long as the recipients are actively seeking work.

Customer Service Building Blocks to Success



On September 18th & 19th, the Riverside County Department of Child Support Services (RivCoDCSS) hosted our 24th Annual Customer Service Conference in Moreno Valley, California. Few things have more power to build customer loyalty than holding a customer service conference for employees of any company. Our Customer Service Conference is critical to the long-term sustainability of our programs, our services, and the expectations of our staff. The conference provided all with an opportunity to learn exclusive and valuable knowledge to help teams deliver the best customer service possible. Other local California LCSA’s had the opportunity to attend this conference as well. Uniquely, this conference was open to surrounding counties as well as departments outside Riverside County Child Support, approximately 326 people were in attendance compared with 280 attendees the previous year. RivCoDCSS invited outside agencies and departments this year to help expand customer service throughout the region. In 2018, 12 outside departments attended the event. In 2019, we had 33 outside departments in attendance. The conference also went from being a 3-day event to a 2-day event; guests had the option of choosing between dates to attend.


Sarah Mack Riverside County’s Assistant CEO was on hand to open the conference providing attendees with a warm welcoming. The goal was to increase employee productivity to deliver the best customer service possible. She also acknowledged RivCoDCSS efforts to benefit the families and communities we serve.


Kimberly Britt, Director of RivCoDCSS spoke to the vision and mission of the department. Employees in attendance received awards and recognition on different achievements from their supervisors. Additionally, we had three special guest speakers who share the goals of bringing people together by educating them on effective communication and employee engagement. Sahar Andrade is a Diversity, Global Leadership & Culture Competence speaker who has a vision and passion in life that she aims to make a reality. Carrie Grace is a motivational speaker and workshop facilitator for employees who desire happiness and fulfillment throughout life’s ups and downs. Dennis Snow has a passion for service excellence. His customer service abilities were developed over his 20-year history with Walt Disney World working as an executive over Customer Service and Relations. Overall, our 24th Annual Customer Service Conference not only prepared departments for delivery on the best customer service possible, but it also helped with finding one’s purpose in life.


It’s undeniable that a well-trained positive customer service team makes your department the best version of itself. Their ability to communicate directly with customers not only improves our efficiency but also improve effectiveness. RivCoDCSS is continually aiming to improve our efficiency, and we are aware of our direct impact to help the families and the communities we serve.


If you are interested in attending our 25th Customer Service Conference in 2020, please contact Marquese Howard, Media Production Specialist, RivCoDCSS. | 951-955-4104.
