Unemployment benefits

Unemployment benefits

Last week, Governor Sununu expanded employee eligibility for state unemployment benefits to self-employed individuals, who are generally excluded from receiving unemployment benefits.

Keep in mind, an individual is only eligible if he or she meets one of the following criteria:

  • If an individual has a current diagnosis of COVID-19;
  • If an individual is quarantined (including self-imposed quarantine) at the instruction of a health care provider, employer, or government official, to prevent the spread of COVID-19;
  • If an individual is caring for a family member or dependent who has COVID-19 or is under a quarantine related to COVID-19; or
  • If an individual is caring for a family member or dependent who is unable to care for themselves due to the COVID-19 related closing of their school, child care facility, or other are program.

We are part of a unique community where our familial cooperation transcends our business competition. These are not mere platitudes, but our living ideals, and they are, in fact, the foundation on which we conduct ourselves in our day-to-day affairs."
