Unemployment insurance has been extended to include bigger unemployment checks and also expanded for multiple groups previously ineligible for unemployment assistance including, gig-works and freelancers, self-employed workers, people seeking part-time work, workers who can’t reach their place of work, and those who don’t have sufficient work history to previously qualify.
Importantly, this bill also now allows workers who have quit their job as a “direct result of Covid-19” to qualify for unemployment, this situation would not normally qualify.
Unemployment insurance will also be provided to those laid off by their employer, furloughed workers, and employees working reduced hours due to Covid-19. If you receive workers’ compensation you will also qualify for a check.
U.S. citizens who made less than $75,000 in 2018 and 2019 will receive a $1,200 stimulus check in early April. For those who earned more than $75,000, the rebate check will shrink by $5 for every $100 earned more than $75,000.
For couples who joint-file, the reduction starts once they earn more than $150,000. For heads of household, this number begins at $112,500. Individuals who earned more than $99,000 and couples who earned more than $198,000 jointly will not qualify.
According to the law, people who do not receive Social Security benefits and also do not typically file taxes because their income is very low will need to file a 2019 tax return in order to receive a stimulus check.
“Social Security recipients who are not typically required to file a tax return need to take no action, and will receive their payment directly to their bank account,” said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.
If you are in this bracket, you can file your tax returns for FREE through the IRS.
