Statistics on COVID-19, unemployment & UI benefits

Updated : May 22nd, 2020

There is little doubt that coronavirus has taken the world by storm. With West Virginia reporting a confirmed case, all 50 states in the United States are now affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The deadly virus is not only leading to the shutdown of the states and assaulting the U.S. economy but also is increasing the unemployment rate. For those losing employment through no fault of their own, filing for UI benefits can be an effective way to overcome the unexpected financial crisis.

Amid the outbreak of coronavirus, many states have eased the unemployment benefits criteria and are offering immediate financial relief to those who have lost employment owing to the COVID-19 pandemic impacts such as travel restrictions, project cancelation, temporary shutdown of social gathering places, etc.

In this article, we will have a detailed look at the number of COVID-19 cases in popular states, the unemployment rate, and the unemployment benefits (UI) offered.

  1. Cindy,

    Please wait for an update from the office. There will be thousands of applications for the office to be processed. Make sure to check the status at regular intervals.

  2. I have only received two of these payments and I did my application on April 9 through the Pega system. I was later allowed to file for PUA on April 28 and received two $600 payments on 05/04/2020. I have not received any more payments of the $600 and I have been claiming my weeks since April 12th until May 21. Why have I not gotten any more of the FPUC payments since?
