Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Now Open

Good news, folks- The State of Oregon Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program is now ready to take applications!

This is a special form of Unemployment Assistance that allows those who are self-employed, "gig workers" such as people who drive for Uber or are a 1099 contractor (aka doing freelance work) to apply for unemployment assistance during the COVID-19 crisis.

Go here to access the Unemployment Dept's page:

https://govstatus.egov.com/ui-benefits/CARES

There is a paper form that you will need to either fill out and sign on a desktop, or print out. It can be either faxed in or mailed at the contact info on the bottom. (I'd advise faxing, personally, if you can get through.)

Don't delay- there will only be so many funds available for this round of assistance!
