How does unemployment work in my state?
Below you will find two websites that discuss unemployment benefits and insurance for each state in the United States. Why are these important to know because "Knowledge is Power".
Right now one of the most important things we can do with our customers is continue to build a rapport. In doing so, we build their trust and confidence in not only our willingness to help them get past these difficult times but our knowledge of how to help them. Most likely a good percentage of your customers are filing for unemployment for the first time. Knowing how to help them and walking them through the process only increases your business value. Talking to your customers today will help you resolve their anxieties and possible fears of the unknown. This will also help you survive as a small business owner through this pandemic.
These websites will also help you find out how the process works, when they should expect to get money and percentages of the checks they might expect. You still have a little research to do but the information for each state can be found below.
One more thing to consider is having compassion with your customers. This is not just one or two people that have been affected by this pandemic but our entire world. #BetterTogether
