Coronvavirus Unemployment Benefits Provisions - ENGLISH and SPANISH
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.
