I don't have a source handy (you can find one easy as I can), but the latest reports of the senate bill that has been agreed to (but not yet passed, and not passed by the house yet, and not signed by the president yet) say that gig workers will be eligible in some way for the expanded unemployment benefits. Haven't seen or been able to find any concrete details on that aspect, and I strongly suspect that when the details get worked out it will be very difficult if not impossible for many if not most drivers to get meaningful relief.Got a source?
presumably you would have to file with the local unemployment office, but beyond that there isn't any available info yet that I can seeHow are we going to apply? I don't think info out there yet. I am 4 years 6000 rides 4.7 rating, I hope I qualify. I was hoping cut throat con artists Uber and Lyft would throw us a bone but not likely, oh yes free cleaning supplies, WTF.
Unfortunately you have two components to deal with - state and feds. Anybody who thinks this is going to be easy is in for a BIG shock. There will be virtually no guidance from state, fees, or U/L. Hopefully we can get guidance from other drivers through this forum who are fortunate enough to successfully navigate this process. Best of luck to everyone.I was just trying to file unemployment (I haven't been driving in quite some time and have blown through my meager savings. My second job isn't enough to sustain me at just a couple hundred a month) and the website is only allowing me to file as self-employed which is a pain in the ass and requires way too much irrelevant information. I'm clueless and frustrated and stressed.
The not having to do anything is for the one time $1,200/2,400 stimulus check, not the $600/week. The $600/week is unemployment.As for the $600 a week for four months, you don't have to sign up for anything. This is according to the IRS. If you filed in 2018 and 2019 and gave the IRS permission to send your refund check directly to your bank via direct deposit, you have nothing to worry about, but if you didn't pay during that time., IRS will go to Social Security to find out who paid into payroll taxes. But since we don't pay into payroll taxes the way a W-2 person does, the IRS will have to find out other ways to figure this out.
That's true, however what I'm asking you is about the claim on the website for unemployment, is there a section for 1099?The not having to do anything is for the one time $1,200/2,400 stimulus check, not the $600/week. The $600/week is unemployment.
Sorry, I didn't see your question before (and still don't?).That's true, however what I'm asking you is about the claim on the website for unemployment, is there a section for 1099?
I never said I asked a question to you before, I should have rephrased it to let me ask you this LOL sorrySorry, I didn't see your question before (and still don't?).
No, there isn't.
How? The website it's not working properly.I filed for unemployment yesterday it went pretty well, we'll see what happens.
Do you have a link I can go to?It seemed normal me, I had a little trouble but went back in and corrected some issues I ran into, I have to do something on April 7th with it like the old days, I haven't collected in years but I remember every week or two you would have to let them know you are in the same situation and it goes on something like this, I'll figure it out, I was happy because I gave them my bank routing and account number I am hoping I get my 1200 with direct deposit also.
I just tried to go into this site again and it won't connect probably over loaded or something but here is link down below.Do you have a link I can go to?
