Coronvavirus Unemployment Benefits Provisions Update

Marquese Howard 0 235

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.
