July 27, 2020: This past Saturday marked the end of the additional $600 weekly Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) benefits available to laid off workers. This assistance, funded by the CARES Act, has helped supplement the incomes of everyone receiving unemployment benefit since the crisis began in early March. Congress is currently debating whether or not to extend or modify this program, and there is uncertainty over the next iteration of any FPUC benefits. If you are unemployed, now is definitely the time to start thinking about your next career move and prepare for your future. Our WorkSource Career Coaches are available for virtual appointments to talk about the possibilities and how we can help you plan and meet your goals. Click here to read this week’s full report.
