As the full effects of COVID-19 are realized, some people may have their job affected. So here’s some important information about unemployment benefits during the coronavirus.
First off, every state operates differently. Some require that you file online while others have toll-free numbers. During this time though, you aren’t required to leave your job to receive benefits.
Here are the new reasons you can apply for unemployment during this time:
- Your employer temporarily ceases operations, preventing you from coming to work
- You’re quarantined with the expectation of returning to work after it’s over
- You leave your job to care for a family member or due to the risk of being exposed
