Those who qualify because they have W2 wages reported to the state are handled, processed and treated differently than us lowly independent contractors.

I applied on March 29th.
I sent in the tax info for Lyft and Uber a week after that because they asked because "there was no proof of income from my employers"
Then I waited for a month and heard nothing at all... (Super frustrating SUPER!)
Woke up this morning with a deposit that included the 4 weeks back pay unemployment AND the $600 for each of the 4 weeks...
FINNALLY this morning there was almost $4000.00 put into my bank!
WAITED A MONTH!!
Now I just hope that my $1200.00 stimulus check shows up some day!
Good luck everyone!

Been a WHOLE month waiting for these things to happen and honestly, I never believed it would!

Congrats, I'd read that MN has started processing PUA claimants now. One of just 3 states that have started. I'm in AZ now, and as of this morning am now at 6 weeks claimed. AZ will start processing PUA folks beginning May 12. So I'm about 2 MORE weeks of waiting for the money.

Take a screenshot at of the PAYMENT INFORMATION page so we can tell if you're getting backpay or not. Make sure to click search so it will show the payment activity.

Those date are place holder. It should be automatically be process soon. It looks like they are slow to do that. My had the same blank week with 0.00, But the next day everything show up duplicate and say processed.

60 % of regular income & I usually wkd near fulltime depending on needs..

.
How much is MN paying for unemployment aside from the Federal $600?
Is it fixed or varies by what one made?

UI didn't ask about any proofs of income and just approved for $200 per week after 4 weeks of waiting. As I read it should be 60% from your income but its three times less than it is gonna be. Did someone get more than minimum as an uber driver?

I got $234.00 a week from UI and the $600.00 from the feds. I am having the $34 taken out of the State UI part for tax's. The $600.00 came untaxed. I am trying to figure out how to get the $600 taxed before I get it. I was on the IRS website and seen a form W-4V "voluntary withholding request" form. I may try that form .

I was waiting since March 29th for the $$$ and I just got it on Wednesday. I got all 4 weeks in one deposit = My whole deposit for the 4 weeks of April was $3200.00 . From now on until I go back to work or until July 31st, I will get $800 a week.
The waiting game for the whole month of April was VERY FRUSTRATING!
It did show up though. Good Luck!

When I did our AZ initial application, I was prompted to provide a yes/no response to withholding Fed and/or State income tax on any benefits. MN didn't do this?

Well that's messed up. Someone there doesn't know what they're doing. It makes no diff where a co's main corp HQ is located. You work in and pay MN taxes. You don't file for UI in Calif.

Yea, you f up. You were not an employee. Putting address is for w2 only.

You file for UI which you are not qualified for.
You need to file for PUA. Which looks like you can't now.
