Do what's best for you and your family....period, if you feel like you dont want a hand out,then drive for uber but please be safe and don't bring the virus home! Good luck
Hand outs are only for corporations that get bailed out and Billionaires,not for the little guy that needs it. That's when it's called socialism .

Well guys, looks like I am heading back out there. Had a family member send me money, and it was only 30 dollars. This government money is just not arriving in time.

I have no gas in my car. I ran out of real food and only have dollar tree frozen food left, and I'm in and out of the bathroom because of it. I have 1.97 left in the account. Having anxiety like crazy and skipped heart beats all day long.

Sucks. I have hypertension, am 44, and have asthma. But I'm heading out. Have no idea how this will effect my unemployment claim.

Pray for my protection out there. I feel like I'm heading out into war, into a battlefield. Uber Eats, here I come...
The above is a product of shutting down everything to "save lives". Millions of people like this but zero concern given to them, for a false guarantee of security if we close up shop. Thousands dead from a virus just like the annual flu.
Wherever you stand, realize these extreme measures enforced by government edict is destroying millions of lives.

What makes you think you will get unemployment? I know the bill says you are included, but how will that work? Uber does not pay into unemployment. Secondly, usually unemployment is for people who get laid off. So far most of you have active Uber accounts. When they call Uber, if they can get a hold of anyone to verify, how are they going to verify you? How will they prove what your income would be? Will they use the gross? My guess is you guys will get either nothing, or just something small, or it will take months. Many of you probably won't get anything on technicalities. Good luck.
I got unemployment in NH for Uber back in 2019; the states will figure it out.

This has never been coordinated with the states. If the feds and states ever get this sorted out, it will be May/June before we see a dime----it may actually be a dime. Then good luck getting Uber/Lyft to provide the salary data---this is already a problem in NY state

These workers are eligible to receive half their state’s average weekly unemployment benefit plus $600 a week. ...


So basically in a typical state if you earn 1000/week, you might get 1/3rd in unemployment. Half of that is 1/6th. Plus the 600.

166 + 600. Its hardly worth fighting over the 166. Wish they would just start giving the 600 now.

Our local news in Florida says: Uber drivers (who do not pay Unemployment tax anyways) will get $0.00 from the state. Uber drivers are only eligible for the $600.00 according to our news station.

Get ready for a rude awakening soon.

Rude awakening?
What's wrong with $600 a week?
Granted, its not as good as $1000 a week ... but ...

Is this the same for the Uber driver employees in California?
We aren't employees yet. AB5 passed, but it just says that we CAN be treated as employees if we are in certain occupations.

Somebody has to take Uber and Lyft to court to force them to treat us as employees. No one's done that yet.

So, yes, it's the same for us as for the other 49 states.

BTW, that $2T bill says this new Unemployment Benefits are for people even if they were not qualified for Unemployment Benefits under their state's old laws.

10000 rides in 11 months? What are you smoking?
My uncle just hit 10k rides driving for 3 years and he works 6 days a week 10 hrs a day.
You are full of crap since the law only allows 12hrs driving per day.
And $1200 a week doing uber eats?
Also hard to believe.
@@@@ you and your uncle....and smoke this

What makes me think you arent a complete idiot? The gov says we are going to get it. Like magic, who cares how it works
Uber doesnt pay unemployment, you are right. This is about ALL independent contractors, not just UBER. Second, unemployment is generally for "employees" who lose their job through "no fault", not exclusively layoff. So far most of you have uber accounts, yes- you are on an UBER forum. I bet most people here also breath oxygen, coincidence? If they call UBER, not that their is a reason, but they can get the same run around I get when I call UBER...How do they verify me? Well, what did I put on my tax return? Oh yea, rideshare, amongst other income. And how do they know amounts? IT DOESNT MATTER because as an independent contractor you qualify for $600 IN ADDITION to whatever other income they deem you qualify for. So while most of US will be getting a check, ALL of us can agree your ignorance shines brightly. My guess is you are a fastfood worker demanding $15/hr thats a bit disgruntled because you still have to work and cant sit back by the pool collecting checks in mail like the rest of us.

I have applied for unemployment relief in Texas however the TWC does not acknowledge Uber as an acceptable previous employer even though the State Governor has included rideshare drivers as eligible for benefits

They are all getting their feet wet. It's new to all the ui clerks. We are still in that grey area. IRS will be putting up a link for drivers soon. I was notified by ui agent to sent a years worth of bank statements proving pay from uber and Lyft. Hate to have that job.

Bank statements? That's all?

No 1099? What about tax returns?

you have to be approved for unemployment in the first place to get that 600 on top of it.
This is not really true you can apply for federal disaster relief it covers anyone over 18 who are US taxpayers. Even if you never had a job say you inherited rental property and never worked a day in your life but you paid taxes you get $600 a week.
