Mar 26 - Coronavirus unemployment benefits. Here's who qualifies.
 

 
By Sahil Kapur and Josh Lederman

WASHINGTON ó The coronavirus relief package dramatically expands unemployment insurance to for the jobless during the outbreak, aimed at easing the suffering imposed by the crisis as claims last week topped 3 million and shattered records.

The $2 trillion bill, which was passed the Senate and is set to be approved by the House on Friday, creates two main categories of benefits for individuals. The first is Pandemic Unemployment a*sistance, which covers people who are unable to work because of the coronavirus outbreak ó that includes independent contractors, gig workers, sick people and those caring for a loved one during the outbreak. The second is an extra $600 per week over the next four months for those who are out of work and getting jobless benefits in their state.

The unemployment benefits are worth an estimated $260 billion, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

The unemployment benefits come alongside direct cash payments to individuals and relief for businesses and the health care sector.

Here are some questions and answers on how the unemployment benefits work:

Q: I just lost my job. What kind of help can I get?
Once you're on unemployment insurance in your state, you will be eligible for an extra $600 per week in emergency federal compensation through July 31, 2020. That's in addition to what you'll receive in state benefits.

Q: Do I get that $600 if I was already getting unemployment before the outbreak?
Yes.

Q: I'm working from home. Can I get any benefits?
Sorry. People who are employed and working from home aren't eligible.

Q: What if I worked part time or had my hours cut?
It depends on your state. Some provide benefits to part-time workers, but others don't.

It's a similar situation for those whose hours are cut. The bill provides funding for states that want to provide benefits when companies slashed workers' hours without laying them off. But not every state provides those benefits, and it appears the federal government is deferring to them on this.

Q: I had just found a job when coronavirus hit, but I hadn't started work. Will I be eligible?
Yes. If you were scheduled to start a job, but lost the job or are unable to get to it as a result of coronavirus, you'll be eligible.

Q: I'm self-employed and didn't previously qualify for unemployment. Am I eligible now?
Yes. This bill creates a new program, called Pandemic Unemployment a*sistance, that extends benefits to gig workers, contractors and others who wouldn't otherwise qualify for unemployment compensation but cannot work due to the coronavirus emergency. You'll get the $600 per week, plus half the average unemployment benefit in your state.

Q: $600 is more than I made before losing my job. Will they cut my benefit?
No. If you qualify for unemployment, the $600 per week applies regardless of what your salary was. (There was a last-minute kerfuffle where a few Senate Republicans tried to reduce the benefits for those who were earning less, but that effort failed.)

Q: Are unemployment benefits taxable income?
Yes.

Q: What if I'm sick or caring for a sick family member. Will they help me?
You should be eligible for a*sistance once you certify that you're ordinarily able and willing to work but can't because of the virus emergency. That includes if you've tested positive or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19, or if you're caring for a member of your household or family who has been diagnosed with the illness.

You should also be covered if you're out of work due to an inability to reach the office due to a quarantine imposed as a direct result of the coronavirus crisis.

Q: What happens when my state unemployment benefits run out?
In most states, people who lose their job can typically get up to 26 weeks of unemployment, and then it stops, even if you haven't found a new job. This bill will provide another 13 weeks once it runs out. After those 39 weeks, if an "extended benefits" program is triggered, that can provide an additional 13 to 20 weeks of compensation.

Q: How long do I have to be out of work to start getting benefits?
Some states require a one-week waiting period for people who become unemployed before they start collecting benefits. Under this bill, Washington will pick up the full cost for states that want to provide those benefits immediately, instead of waiting one week. But ultimately, itís up to the state you live in to decide whether to provide benefits during that first week.

Q: I might've lied to claim benefits. What happens to me?
If you knowingly misrepresented your situation, you could be cut off from receiving any further pandemic unemployment compensation and face a fine and jail time under the law.

I fall into this boat. I quit my job a lil over a month ago and I was awarded benefits because I claimed mental issues. (I hated that damn job) I got my first weekly payment of $464 on tuesday. The max you can get weekly is like $498. With that extra 600 i will be sitting at $1064 every week. Im not a bum by no means but this is a blessing for me. I just started my business and this will give me time to focus and get it off the ground.

Scientists say the pandemic is likely to be brought to an end in one of two ways: with a vaccine, or by achieving so-called herd immunity, which occurs when a large percentage of the population—half or more—survives infection and develops immunity to the virus. An effective treatment would also help slow the contagion and reduce the risk.

All three are problematic. Millions of people would have to be infected, and many would die before herd immunity is reached, experts say. A vaccine is likely to take much longer than a year to develop and be made widely available, said Kristian Andersen, an infectious-disease researcher at Scripps Research in La Jolla, Calif. New drugs also are not easy to develop.

If you're employed, it has nothing to do with you in the first place.

There should be SOME form of penalty on the back end for cellecting unemployment. I filed as well, basically because I couldn’t find a reason not to. I have plenty saved up and would be fine without it, but please enlighten me on the CONS of receiving this benefit

Employed folks still get to make money... no one asked to be laid off. Which is different from being fired, or too lazy to find a job

I was laid off, and ready to go back to work, but Iím forced to stay my a*s home. So yea, the government gonna have to bite that bullet

Itís like dadís who WANT to see and take care of their kids, but the mom says ďno! Imma collect child supportĒ. Lots of us WANT to work!

Enjoy the money if it’s above what you’ve had before, but that still ain’t sh*t, no hate, but if you looking at 600x4x4 as a change of life you got life all fu*ked up.

Iím sure this isnít the fault of anyone who has been laid off... u canít force people not to work, and then expect them to have a way to live.

The virus is affecting us all. Itís not like a regular UI. Itís a pandemic, so being penalized for getting it, that has to fall on the Government.
