"All states approved for LWA will receive $300 per week except for Kentucky, West Virginia, and Montana (Kansas and Vermont were on the list, now they are saying they won’t be) who have officially announced they will be contributing an additional $100 per week to the LWA program so they're unemployed receive $400 per week."
About the video:
"Unemployment $300 & $400 per week LWA update (6 week pay updates!)
Over 30 billion of the 44 billion for LWA funds has already been sent out. FEMA initially only guaranteed 3 weeks of funding; however initial calculations suggested it would last four to seven weeks be depending on participation.
The executive memorandum is only a temporary solution to enhancing unemployment provided by President Donald Trump’s efforts to reallocate funds when congress did not issue new funds.
To be eligible, according to the executive memorandum, you must collect $100 or more per week from your unemployment benefits before taxes to receive LWA. Unlike FPUC where everyone was eligible who lost their jobs due to the pandemic, LWA you must have lost your job due to the pandemic and receive $100 per week or more.
Some states require you recertify so please check with you state to find out what is required. Also, LWA is supposed to be retroactive in a lump sum however some states haven’t been doing this. These are the most current updates I have as of today, but they could change.
Now for the new states approved by FEMA. https://www.fema.gov/fact-sheet/lost-...
