How the stimulus bill impacts the unemployed

If you like this page, please share it.

The stimulus bill that was agreed to last night adds $600/week to anyone who is on unemployment compensation.

It provides a 13 week extension to the regular 26 weeks of state UC.

It also provides UC for gig workers, self employed people and performers forced from their jobs by the virus, including the $600 weekly, plus regular state UC based on their income.

The $600 weekly supplement ends on July 31, 2020 and the other provisions end on December 31, 2020.

There will also be payments of $1,200 per person for all those with incomes under $75,00, with reduced payments up to $99,000, or $2,400 for a couple making less than $150,000 and $500 per child.
