State of Alaska
The Legislature has passed a bill that will expand unemployment benefits for Alaskans impacted by COVID-19. This bill enables Alaskans who are unable to work, due to mandates, employer decision or to care for children displaced from school or childcare, to access unemployment benefits immediately. Under this bill, the standard one-week waiting period would be waived and the weekly per-dependent amount would triple from $25 to $75.
It also allows the State of Alaska to receive federal unemployment insurance grants authorized by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. If you have been affected by COVID-19 closures and lost work, you can access the State Unemployment Insurance Program online at my.alaska.gov. Once on the homepage, click on “Unemployment Insurance Benefits.” You can also call for assistance: (1-888-252-2557).

(Small and midsize employers can claim two new refundable payroll tax credits to reimburse them, dollar-for-dollar, for the cost of providing employee leave related to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Businesses with less than 500 employees can get funds to provide employees with paid leave, either for the employee’s own health needs or to care for family members.
To take immediate advantage of new paid leave credits, businesses can retain and access funds that they would otherwise pay to #the IRS in payroll taxes.)
