All the non-essential businesses have been shutting down in the region of New Jersey due to the ongoing threat of the coronavirus, many people have been losing their jobs and the unemployment claims have risen by 20% for the week which ended on the 14th of March in comparison to the same period one year ago. This was before the closure at a widespread level in the state. The officials have said that they want those in New Jersey to focus only on their health and not be worried about money however this is not something that many people might be able to do for the finances.
They have been providing the people with a list of the critical items which need to be known and this is turning out to be some kind of a survival kit which will help people in getting through the ongoing threat.
The legislature has been working on the large package of the bills which will be helping workers so a lot more changes have been expected to come. If the paycheck is lost, the unemployed person may apply for the unemployment insurance. The benefit one gets will be dependent on the wages records. This has been stated on the website of the Labor Department.
As per the ongoing law, the person may be eligible for benefits of up to 26 weeks however there are a few requirements which are to be met. In case the workplace has been closed down, the workers both permanent and the temporary ones will be met without any guidelines. There may also be cases when the government offers partial benefits in a few cases.
