In this episode, our team answers farmers’ questions from our April 13, 2020 webinar on Unemployment Insurance (UI) for Farmers and Ranchers Affected by COVID-19. If you’re wondering…

  • Will income losses from agritourism be covered by UI?
  • Am I eligible for UI if I have limited income to report?
  • Are UI benefits retroactive from application date, or do they begin after I apply?
  • Should I add back depreciation to my lost income?
  • I farm with my spouse – – how should we determine our income loss to apply for UI and how do we report our weekly status to our state employment commission?
  • What’s a scenario where someone would take UI over a Paycheck Protection Program loan?

We’ve got answers for you on all these matters and more, so tune in!
