According to their website you will be receiving it separately
Is that extra $600 only in NJ?

Not at all, itís part of the Federal CARES Act ($2.2 trillion stimulus act), but is paid by each stateís unemployment administrator/Dept. of Labor.

Everyone currently on unemployment in the US for any reason (Covid related or not) is now receiving (or will receive shortly if their state hasn't gotten around to updating their system yet) an additional $600 weekly.

I was told that some people are making more money unemployed than working.
That seems problematic. Unemployed workers will not want to go back to work.
Workers will want to become unemployed.
But it is what it is. Happy that it helps those who need it.

There is a time limit for unemployment. But someone who wanted to look for a new job can quit now and spend some time looking...
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

You cant file unemployment if you quit your job. Only if you were fired due to lack of work or if you have to stay home for covid-19 related reasons

Workers will want to become unemployed.
I agree with this sentiment that there are some who would gladly be laid off from now til July to receive unemployment + $600.
I think the gov made a big mistake by adding a flat rate (especially such a large one) to the base rate. They should've either added a % (maybe even 100%) to the base rate, or $100/$200 flat. $600 is overdoing it for a large part of the country (excluding NY), and for many median and below employees.

Most low income workers will benefit greatly from being unemployed right now but @CountValentine thinks workers will take a pay cut to return to work because they want to be working.

Count the number of times I said work in that sentence.

At the end of July when benefits start running out, agreed. Until then I don't see that being the case.

There are always those lazy bums. Not sure 600 is such a large amount. If it is a large amount then most likely it will help you since you weren't making much to begin with.

I know this is a difficult feat but try to get someone on the phone and explain your situation (and record if possible). If you're not making any $ (or very little in most states), you're eligible, but you can sometimes be disqualified if you're putting in too many hours and then you'll need to have them review your claim weekly after you file so that they can manually release after being disqualified for hours. If you can get a recording of someone telling you you can file 0 hours as long as you're not making much (in NY the limit is $504), you can save yourself the pain of having to request a review of your claim every week.

Not sure about NJ but in NY the actual process of having them review your claim after being disqualified is very simple and can be done through the message center, but since they're so backlogged it's taking them about 2 weeks to review which is annoying if you have this dilemma on a steady basis.

that is for sure. I work for someone in which i get commissions.  so either one can work and is a honest answer as there is no work now.
