What is the status of the weekly $300 unemployment?!

If you’re wondering what’s going on with the $300/wk unemployment bonus ordered by President Trump, you’re not alone. You may be surprised to learn, however, that most states have been approved by FEMA to receive the additional $300 per week benefit (as discussed on our weekly video here). Below is a list of the states that have NOT been approved. If your state is NOT on this list, then you will be receiving this $300 Federal unemployment bonus.

  • District of ColumbiaWill apply
  • KansasWill apply
  • NebraskaProbably won’t apply
