3. Depends on your state. CA is great with UI.

Last Tuesday, the CA EDD opened a portal for 1099/indie contractors etc to apply for UI benefits under the Pandemic UI rules of the CARES Act. It provides $167 a week for March 1-31, then $167 + $600 in Fed money per week through the end of July.

I applied last Tuesday. By Friday, $3600 in UI benefits had been processed. That money was transferred to my EDD BoA card YESTERDAY. Less than one week, and I had a big chunk of change.

Who says government doesn’t work!?

BTW - where CA needs to do a better job is in the amount of $ one can get while on UI. The current top weekly rate is only $450 a week, less than states like OH. $450 a week doesn’t do much for people living in a state with one of the highest CoLs in the country. Plus, other states provide higher funding if you have dependent children. CA does not.
