California to Begin Processing Unemployment Supplement

The California Employment Development Department (EDD) announced it will begin processing a $300 weekly supplemental unemployment benefit for eligible Californians and sending out payments the week of September 7.

Payments will be available to those currently eligible to receive at least $100 in weekly state unemployment benefits who have certified they are fully or partially unemployed due to disruptions caused by COVID-19. An estimated 1.3 million Californians might still be due money from the EDD.
