Unemployment - New CARES Update

Self-employed/sole proprietors/independent contractors are now eligible to receive unemployment, if you are not in operation. As of today (3/31/20), you CANNOT apply yet, but benefits will be retroactive. You should NOT try, as initial rejection may slow the process.
