The bill creates a dependent allowance for an individual receiving
unemployment compensation (eligible individual) for each of the eligible
individual's dependents. The dependent allowance starts on July 1, 2025,
is $35 per dependent per week, and increases annually for inflation if
necessary. The bill defines dependent as a child of an eligible individual
who receives at least half of the child's financial support from the eligible
individual and who is:
  • Under 18 years of age; or
  • 18 years of age or older and incapable of self-care because
of a mental or physical disability.
The bill requires the division of unemployment insurance to report
to the general assembly regarding the dependent allowance annually,
beginning August 31, 2025, and by August 31 of each year thereafter.
