How to apply for unemployment benefits if you are out of work during Illinois’ COVID-19 shutdown by Sun-Times

Workers laid off temporarily — and even parents caring for children home from school — can qualify for unemployment benefits under the state’s recently adopted emergency rules.

With applications by state residents for unemployment insurance surging in recent days, the Illinois Department of Employment Security announced emergency rules Monday for who can qualify for benefits during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tens of thousands of workers across Illinois have been temporarily out of work since the outbreak began forcing businesses to close. Last week, Gov. J.B. Pritzker ordered all bars and restaurants to stop serving dine-in customers, and on Saturday, he issued a stay-at-home order leaving just “essential” businesses in operation.

The result is countless people are now out of work and being forced into the state’s unemployment system. Illinois alone saw more than 64,000 new claims for unemployment benefits from March 16-18.

To handle this massive influx of new applications, IDES announced it recently adopted emergency rules for who qualifies for unemployment insurance.

Unemployment insurance (UI) basics

In normal times, UI provides temporary income via federal funds to Illinois residents who are unemployed but able, available and actively seeking work each week.

The amount residents can receive depends on their usual pay rate with benefits ranging from $51 to $580 per week. Those approved can receive up to 26 weeks of benefits in a 12-month period.

The new emergency rules adopted during the coronavirus pandemic open up UI to a much larger group of workers. This means many people who wouldn’t typically qualify for UI can get benefits during the state of emergency.

Workers temporarily laid off due to COVID-19 can get UI

Illinois residents who are temporarily out of work because their employer has closed due to the coronavirus can qualify for UI if they meet all the other basic requirements.

The state isn’t expecting anyone to go out looking for a new job during a stay-at-home order: as long as applicants are prepared to return to their job as soon as the employer reopens, they’ll be considered to be actively seeking work and will qualify.

Under emergency rules, these workers will not have to register with the employment service.

Workers who quit due to COVID-19 fears cannot get UI

Unlike Illinois residents who are temporarily laid off by their employers’ closure, workers who voluntarily leave their job over concerns of the coronavirus will not be eligible for UI. The agency says “an individual generally has a duty to make a reasonable effort to work with his or her employer to resolve whatever issues have caused the individual to consider quitting.”

Parents who leave work due to a child’s school closure can get UI

With all Illinois schools closed through at least April 7, and Chicago Public schools through April 20, parents who voluntarily leave work to care for their child can qualify for UI because they “could be considered as unemployed through no fault of” their own.

You must still meet all of the other standard requirements, and unlike workers temporarily laid off due to COVID-19, parents who voluntarily leave work must be registered with the employment service.

Anyone who’s already exhausted UI rights will not receive additional benefits

Illinois residents who have already received the full 26 weeks’ worth of benefits within the last 12 months will not be eligible for additional UI under the emergency rules.

Here’s how to apply for UI

You can call the Illinois Department of Economic Services at 800-244-5631 or 866-488-4016 (TTY), but even the governor admits the lines have been very busy so he recommends filing your claim via the IDES website. Do not go in person: As of March 19, IDES offices are closed to the public until further notice.

“No sustained transformation can take place without going within, to experience our essential nature and allowing it to come forth to guide our lives.” -Kamau Abayomi, Creator of Black Divinity Meditation Day
Black Divinity Meditation Day is a global event beginning at sunrise on March 22nd, asking black people to commit to at least 30 minutes of meditation–privately and/or publicly–and have someone take a photo and/or video and share it under the hashtag #blackdivinitymeditation and #blackpeoplemeditating.
In honor of Black Divinity Meditation Day, spiritual guide and transformational healer Stacy Patrice is leading an hour-long ‘cosmic meditation for the soul’ at Dorchester Art + Housing Collaborative. No one will be turned away based on previous experience and all meditators will be supported. We are inviting experienced meditators alongside those in the Black community who do not know about meditation, its purpose and how to do it, to join and learn.
In preparation: Attend Soul Healing Yoga with Stacy Patrice every Sunday from 1-2:30pm at Dorchester Art & Housing Collaborative (1456 E 70th Street).

Black Men Do Yoga Hosted by Dr. Obari Adéye Cartman
The Quarry Event Center
2423 E 75th St, Chicago, Illinois 60649 i avoid yoga because im not flexible enough, dont like being embarrassed. i realize that logic is backwards because yoga would make me more flexible but i still dont go. yoga spaces seem for women and for people that already do yoga. we are creating a space for me. and another guys that need to move, stretch, breathe, and slow down. you dont have to wear tights and say namaste. Peaceful Tranquility Realized will lead us through some movement and breathing exercises to help us learn to use our body to heal from the stress of being Black men in America. then you are welcome to stay after for #MANifestWellnessSundays from 1-3 where we drum and talk about life. this aint the new masculinity or white people stuff. this is as old & African as it gets.
the first month will be free99 (starting 10/20) and if it seems like a good idea to continue we will offer our instructor $5 per session. borrow your lady’s mat or just bring a towel and lets get this healing on.
