Is there anyone who can touch on the mortgage relief portion of the CARES act? This affects businesses if employees and customers lose their homes and have no money to spend as a consumer. I have read 6 month of relief if you have a federally backed loan, but I heard on the news that might be bumped up to one year. Also, does anyone know specifics? Banks are allowing 3 month "deferment" but it requires you to pay all 3 months at once on the 4th month. Is the CARES Act similar? If so that does not actually help people. I think these are things employees need help understanding.

We're confused on the period. Is it 2 1/2 mo.s or 8 weeks ? Thx !

I am an INDIVIDUAL SOLE PROPRIETORSHIP, i.e. a FREELANCE GIG WORKER, with no employees. I am trying to apply for TEXAS UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS under the CARES Act. But the Texas Workforce Commission application REQUIRES that I enter information as if I had been EMPLOYED as a W2 EMPLOYEE. But since I was not employed as a W2 employee, the application will NOT let me continue to apply. Does anyone know how to apply as an INDIVIDUAL SOLE PROPRIETORSHIP FREELANCE GIG WORKER? Thank you so much!!!

Jack and Jay, I am not trying to get an SBA loan. The problem is that the TWC application will not let me apply for Unemployment Benefits as a Sole Proprietorship, as allowed under the CARES Act.

The chat box is a virtual robot chat box, not real people, and it just regurgitates what I have already read on the site.

The TWC website application does not work for contractors, freelancers, etc. That's the problem. Can anyone help???
