File for Unemployment Online

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Americans are unable to work or have been laid off completely. This resulted in a huge increase in the number of people claiming unemployment. There is also the federal boost to state unemployment insurance amounts. To ease the burden of financial struggle during the pandemic, the federal government is adding an additional $600 to state unemployment insurance benefits up to 16 weeks.

This is undoubtedly a historic boost to unemployment claims. Given the most state unemployment insurance amounts range between $250 to $550 depending on the state, that extra $600 is definitely going to make it a lot easier for many Americans. This is a set amount so whether you’re making $300 a week on unemployment or $550, you’re going to receive the additional $600.
