Today’s Updates

Updates May 6:

🧡 Below you will find unemployment and paid leave guidelines for all 50 states.

🧡 HUD has issued some new regs for people getting an extra $600 per month in unemployment. The extra money will NOT count as income for HUD. $600 Per Week in Unemployment.

🧡 Some Housing Authorities are aware of these new regs and some are not. If your Housing Authority tries to include this as income, you can show them the regulation: Questions and Answers for Multi-Family Housing (page 9) and Frequently asked questions for Housing Authorities in the time of coronavirus.

🧡 If the income did not get excluded: Letter if Housing Agency Did Not Exclude Your Pandemic Unemployment Pay

🧡 44 states have now added $600 per week to unemployment checks. All states coming soon. In most states, people are now receiving a higher weekly check than they were when they were working. See a chart.

🧡 Pandemic Unemployment Assistance is a special program for people who do not not normally qualify for unemployment. It is now available in most states, and will be available everywhere soon. If your state’s website does not have a way to apply for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, keep checking back. 

🧡 If you got turned down in the past, you should reapply as soon as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance is available in your state.

🧡  Out of work? Reduced hours? Here’s an overview of your options: 10 Ways Salary Can Continue When Your Work Stops or Hours Reduce

🧡 Before applying read this: Important Tips for Applying for Unemployment in The Time of Corona

🧡 Under the Cares Act, all people on unemployment will be receiving an additional $600 per week for four months. Learn more about how this works here: $600 Per Week in Unemployment. Three Examples.

About ME

This blog was created by people with ME or CFS (Sometimes called “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”).

Being homebound is nothing new to us. Many of us have been homebound or bedridden for five, or ten, or twenty years.

There is now a great deal of support, understanding, and help available to people staying home during Coronavirus, but none of this was available to us all these years, and when Coronavirus is over, it may go away again.

As you go about your day, please take a moment to think about your homebound friends. You may be able to go back out someday, but we may never be able to.

💗💗💗,
