California’s unemployment insurance program is set to receive an expansion next year.
The California Department of Insurance, which administers unemployment insurance, has approved the expansion for an additional 2 million workers, and the agency has set a July 1 deadline for the expansion to be implemented.
The expansion would bring the program’s unemployment benefit to $12,000 for every adult who receives unemployment insurance and $15,000 to $18,000 per person with disability.
The benefit would be based on an individual’s household income, but also on whether or not the person qualifies for a public assistance benefit.
The expanded benefits would go into effect in January.
Under the proposal, the state would increase its unemployment benefit for people who are already eligible for benefits and who have worked at least 40 hours in a week.
The benefits would also be expanded to those who work in California and live in California.
The new benefits would start to be phased in over time, with more people being eligible every year.
As part of the proposal to increase benefits, the agency also proposed creating a new benefit that would replace existing unemployment benefits and would be administered by the California Unemployment Insurance Department.
The newly created benefit would cover up to four weeks of paid leave per year, but would be subject to annual caps and would not apply to certain workers or job titles.
A second expansion would cover workers who have recently been fired from their jobs or have been laid off by the company.
The agency would also allow workers to stay on unemployment benefits until they can find another job and would provide additional benefits to those workers who work part-time or have a jobless relative.
The agency also said it would increase benefits for people with children, and would create an alternative benefit that includes a four-month job training program.
The new expansions would go in effect on July 1.
The agency is also proposing to expand benefits for certain workers and to make it easier for them to apply for unemployment benefits.
The expanded benefits will be limited to the number of hours worked and the number and type of work-related injuries or illnesses, and will be based solely on the person’s employment status.
The changes will be phased into a phase-in schedule starting in January 2020 and ending in 2019.
The proposed expansions would increase the number benefits available to workers who are eligible for unemployment insurance.
