COVID-19 Relief Law - Executive Order Extends Fed Unemployment

Blog Category:
Comments (0)


The White House announced a new series of executive orders providing relief to Americans facing eviction proceedings. The President issued an executive order granting additional student loan relief and provide a payroll tax cut, enhanced unemployment benefits and an eviction moratorium. Some of the Executive Order's key aspects are as follows:

  1. The $600 per week federal unemployment benefit created by the Cares Act expired last month and negotiators had been working towards extending a lesser amount.
  2. During those negotiations, we learned that Republicans proposed a $400 per week federal unemployment insurance benefit through December 15th. This was higher than the $200 per week benefit included in the HEALS Act but less than the $600 per week benefit that Democrats wished.
  3. The President signed an executive memorandum, titled the “Memorandum on Authorizing the Other Needs Assistance Program for Major Disaster Declarations Related to Coronavirus Disease 2019,” that would give a $400 per week in enhanced federal unemployment benefits through December 27th.
