Information on the $600 weekly unemployment benefit
Although the individual states are responsible for paying weekly unemployment benefits, the federal government is kicking in a much-needed additional $600 to those benefits as part of the new stimulus recovery package.
The first step to receiving this $600 benefit from the federal government is to apply for unemployment compensation through your state's program.
Additionally, the federal stimulus recovery package entitles Americans who have historically been disqualified from receiving unemployment compensation, such as the self-employed and part-time employees, to receive this $600 payment over and above what the state's benefit is.
If you're included in the massive numbers of unemployed in this country resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be entitled to this $600 weekly payment from the federal government.
