Gig Workers Are Now Eligible For Special Unemployment Benefits. But Many Won’t Get Them

"I thought, 'Oh, great, the CARES Act is going to take care of me,'" said Imber, 32, who lives in Sherman Oaks.

"The problem was that at the end of March and in early April, nobody knew how to apply for it," he said.

His attempts to apply based on his self-employment income during the reigning confusion wound up in getting unemployment benefits for his Ducks income _ a situation he had specifically tried to avoid.

Now he's not sure what to do with the money.

"I am wholeheartedly afraid to spend it ... What if I am not entitled to it, for one reason or another?" he said.

"Moralistically, I don't want to touch that money," he said. "But we do have bills to pay." ___ Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
