Unemployment Benefits — Extra $300/week

By Terry Savage on September 20, 2020 | Wild Card & Pandemic Related

Hello Ms. Savage –

CONFUSED. Only received $900 for the special benefits provided by the state per President Trump’s order. I read it was 6 weeks ($1800). I received $900 for 3 weeks. Is the rest coming later ? No one seems to know WHY ?


Terry Says

The state started out by sending 3 weeks to SOME people, as a sort of catchup from August 1, when the program was to have started. Consider yourself lucky! Many people have not received ANY of this Federal money. And IDES has not said anything publicly about HOW it is deciding who gets this extra money and when.
