Starting this week, California workers who are receiving unemployment benefits will begin receiving an extra $600 on top of their weekly amount as part of the new Pandemic Additional Compensation (PAC) initiated by the CARES Act. This comes as record numbers of unemployment claims are being filed on a weekly basis in the state.
This is an important benefit that will help Californians struggling economically as a result of COVID-19.
