Expanded Unemployment Benefits

While taxpayers will continue to apply for and receive unemployment benefits from their state, the federal unemployment insurance will add $600 per week to the amount provided from the state through July 31.  There is no repayment or reduction provision in the law if the $600 additional weekly amount makes your unemployment compensation higher than your base earnings from employment.

In addition, part-time, self-employed, and gig economy workers now have access to unemployment benefits.
