Don’t forget about the CARES act expansion to benefit artists, gig workers, and other self-employed.

I applied for California’s Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, and I’m recieving $167 weekly, with the weekly $600 extension from the federal government until July 25th. Sure, I’ll owe some taxes on it next year, but it’s a very helpful lifeline in these uncertain times.

ETA: In order to not be surprised at tax time next year, I took advantage of the automatic garnishing feature the unemployment office offers on their website.
