The executive actions extend pandemic unemployment benefits, student loan payment deferrals, eviction protections for renters, and payroll tax cuts.

  • Federal unemployment benefits would be $400 per week until December 2020. States would be responsible for covering 25% of costs, or $100 per week, per individual.
  • The federal mortarium on evictions for renters is extended through 2020
  • Federal student loan payments are suspended through the end of 2020.
  • Employers can defer payments for the employee portions of specific payroll taxes through 2020.
