Millions of Americans have lost their jobs due to the coronavirus -- either directly from getting ill or indirectly because of the steps state and local governments are taking to try to control the spread of COVID-19, like closing businesses and schools. At the same time, the federal government has beefed up unemployment benefits, and many states have changed their rules to make benefits more widely available. 

Which leaves many with questions: Can you get benefits if you can't work because your child's school is closed? What if you are quarantined? Can gig workers get benefits? Is that extra $600 still available? And how long will your benefits last? Find out the answers to these questions and more by selecting your state from the list below.
