DOL publishes FAQs on Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation

The guidance on the COVID-19 response just keeps pouring in. DOL published this handy guide: Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020 – FederalPandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) Program Reporting Instructionsand Questions and Answers

I have always understood that people who are receiving partial UC still get the $600 weekly "bonus cash" - but it's still nice to see confirmation: 
4. Question: Is an individual who is working part-time, or has gone back to work part-time, and is collecting partial UC benefits for a week eligible for FPUC? 

Answer: Yes. An individual working part-time who otherwise meets state eligibility requirements for the underlying benefit is eligible to receive the FPUC payment.
Additional information and links are available on the press release here.
