COVID-19 Relief Law - Executive Order Extends Fed Unemployment
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
