COVID-19 Update

Dear Neighbor,

In order to support your families being able to take a deep breath, turn away from constant news updates, and create a new temporary normal, my office will continue posting a near-daily update on the COVID-19 public health emergency to our website and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

It is my hope that one reliable update each day will allow you to take a deep breath, oversee all that is happening in your own life and home, and have a reliable source of news you can count on to be up to date and accurate. As always, previous updates are on our website and linked beneath the graphic below. 

My greatest concerns right now are your lives and livelihoods. We are working hard to keep you and your loved ones safe, and to fight for our small businesses in an unprecedented crisis. 

In solidarity,

Rep. Robyn Vining

FPUC Payments End on July 25th

From the Department of Workforce Development website:

The additional $600 per week benefit paid under the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) program will expire the week ending July 25, 2020.

An individual still waiting on a decision regarding their unemployment eligibility will receive all back weeks of FPUC due to them, even if that decision is made after July 25, 2020.

DWD has no control over FPUC ending. The Federal government makes that decision. There is no extension planned at this time. If you have comments about FPUC ending, contact your members of Congress at: https://www.congress.gov/contact-us
