#JobSimpleLiving **Very Important**:
Update as of 7/6/2020:
$600 per week from CARES Act will end in July 2020 but Trump is trying to extend and give bigger checks for American.
If you have reduced work hours, then be sure for a job type – choose “Part-time reduced hours due to covid-19” option in order to qualify for unemployment. If you pick a full time, and/or put NO for looking for work, or NO for going back to school, you might not qualify.

Very important: You will also get $600 additional each week, a lot of money here, from Federal government until the end of December 2020. Don’t miss out.
The EDD has started paying an additional $600 on top of your current weekly benefit amount with the extra money coming from the federal government as part of the federal CARES Act. Here’s what you need to know:
Claimants do not need to do anything to receive this extra funding. The EDD will automatically add the full $600 to each week of current benefits that are paid every two weeks, as long you are eligible for at least $1 in a regular payment each week.
For someone receiving the most recent average Unemployment Insurance payment of $340 a week, a usual biweekly payment would equal $680. With the extra payment, that biweekly payment would increase to $1,880.
The first week the additional payments can be made is for the week ending April 4, not before. Separate retroactive payments will be automatically issued soon to those who had an active claim that week, and the $600 extra payments can continue to those who remain impacted and otherwise eligible for benefits through the week ending July 31, 2020.
