$600 weekly unemployment payments end of July 2020
The Department of Labor says that states will begin administering $600 weekly payments to many of those receiving state unemployment, which will be on top of standard unemployment checks issued by the states.
When the payments will be available will vary by state, as the federal government works with the states to administer the program. The program will run through the end of July.
The additional $600 payments will be available to those receiving standard unemployment from states, in addition to those receiving payments from the Pandemic Emergency
The program is being fully funded by the federal government.
Nearly 10 million Americans have applied for unemployment benefits in recent weeks. That number will likely climb on Thursday as many Americans have been unable to file for unemployment as many states are struggling to keep up with unemployment applications.
