Wednesday, April 8, 2020

12:00pm – 1:30pm

4:00pm – 5:30pm

Are you losing your job (or losing hours) as a result of the current pandemic? Is someone in your household unemployed or underemployed? In many cases, you may be eligible for benefits you’re not aware of. Unemployment benefits have been significantly expanded as a result of recent laws, and we’ll cover important changes members need to know about. This workshop will also demystify the process of applying for unemployment benefits. Learn about requirements of the Employment Development Department (EDD) and the step-by-step process when applying for benefits. This workshop will particularly benefit part-time faculty, temporary certificated staff, and anyone facing reduced, cancelled, or unscheduled teaching loads in the present and near-future.

12:00pm – 1:30pm

4:00pm – 5:30pm

Is student debt still weighing you down in the current crisis? There may be a way to find relief! Recent federal legislation provides some relief from your student burden, at least on a temporary basis.  And if you work for a public institution or for a nonprofit, you may already qualify for public service loan forgiveness. Learn what’s changed to relieve the student debt burden during the current pandemic.  We’ll also share how to qualify for loan forgiveness, how to make your payments manageable, and how we can work together to address the student debt crisis in California.

When you register to attend a webinar, you will receive email confirmation of your registration directly from Zoom. The email will contain the link to join the videoconference from your PC, Mac, iOS or Android device, as well as the phone number if you choose to call in for your audio.
