Millions are facing unemployment due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In March, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law. This $2 trillion law provides funding for states, which are responsible for providing unemployment insurance (UI), to significantly expand eligibility and benefits. The broad outlines include:

  • Pandemic Unemployment Assistance: freelancers and gig workers are now eligible for UI benefits (e.g., self-employed workers, independent contractors).
  • Pandemic Unemployment Compensation: An extra $600 per week, on top of regular benefits, to UI recipients.
  • Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation: An additional 13 weeks of UI benefits, for a total of 39 weeks of coverage.

In New York State, The New York State Department of Labor is responsible for issuing UI.
