Pandemic Unemployment Benefits, Including Self-Employed individuals

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance has been extended, providing federal unemployment benefits for self-employed and gig workers typically not eligible for state unemployment benefits, including individuals who are unable to work due to a number of COVID-related reasons. Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation benefits are reinstated at $300 per week, through September 6, 2021. An extra $100 per week will be available through September 6, 2021 for workers who have both W-2 and self-employment income but whose base benefit calculation doesn’t take their self-employment into account.
