麻州領失業金者 8月可額外多領900元


             (Boston Orange編譯)81日,9日,15日這3週有資格領失業救濟金的人,將可每週多領300元。麻州政府24日宣佈,聯邦政府緊急管理局(FEMA)已批准補助申請,麻州失業援助部將在電腦系統調整後發放。
             在國會未能展延327日起實施的CARES法案,每週額外增發600元失業福利後,川普總統在本月初命令聯邦緊急管理局發440億元給各州救急。
             川普的命令起初是要求一週增發400元,其中100元預定由各州自行籌資支付,但許多州現金拮据,無法負擔這100元,條款因而改變。上個月在全美失業率榜單上排名第一的麻州,被迫向美國財政部借了10億元來派發傳統的麻州失業福利。六月份時發出的失業福利金,額度平均為每週425元。
             美國約有2800萬人在七月份錢發光之前,收到了每週600元的額外失業補助。
            麻州州長查理貝克(Charlie Baker)曾表示他不喜歡川普總統這一方法,但說明,如果方案推出了,麻州也不會拒絕的不申請。
             包括新罕布夏州(NH),羅德島州(RI),佛蒙特州(VT),至少有29州已獲批准,可從聯邦緊急管理局(FEMA)那兒領三週資金。至於有沒足夠的錢繼續發,目前不得而知。


Massachusetts Approved For Lost Wages Assistance Grant


BOSTON, MA — Commonwealth Receiving 3 Weeks of Federal FEMA Funds to Pay Additional $300 Unemployment Benefits


Massachusetts’ application to receive grant funding to pay an additional weekly unemployment benefit to claimants under the federal Lost Wages Supplemental Payment Assistance (LWA) program has been approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The application was submitted late last week by the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), in coordination with the Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA).
Per FEMA’s authorization, the grant will fund an additional $300 weekly payment to those who are eligible for the three weeks ending 8/1/20, 8/8/20, and 8/15/20. The Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance has already begun work on the technology requirements necessary for this program and anticipates being able to quickly deliver retroactive funds to eligible claimants in the coming weeks. Most claimants currently receiving benefits do not need to take any action because the Commonwealth will automatically add LWA to their weekly benefit payment retroactive to the dates they are eligible.
