PUC ENDS AFTER 12 WEEKS
I always hate to be the bearer of bad news but.... I don't want anyone to be caught off guard and thought this article will answer some questions you might have about how much and for how long you can collect unemployment benefits.
According to this article, if I am reading it correctly, the $600 extra TWC unemployment benefits for independent contractors (you) are for 12 weeks only and most have already claimed 4-6 weeks of it. (March through July only; approximately $8000 after taxes are deducted). In August, your benefits will reduce to $200/wk.
Please read this article and verify with the TWC if it there is any questions about it: https://bit.ly/2YOU3w4
If anyone finds a source that says anything different, please text your source to me and I will do my due diligance to verify it.
I would suggest use any unemployment funds received sparingly as the potential for another outbreak is possible and we all need to be prepared.
