The fishermen need to go ahead and apply to the state unemployment system and it will say denied due to the fact they have not had an employer pay into the state system. Then on Friday they will apply again selecting the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program. They will need a 1099 or 2019 taxes to show they have paid self employment taxes and are a legitimate business sole proprietor. Even if they haven’t filed yet if they made quarterly payments that can be their proof. I think they can draw these weekly payments as long as they are not working for up to 12 weeks. Thanks

All, As you may know this whole govt program has been changing, apparently several times a day since implementation. If you have filled out a treasury dept ppp application form prior to receiving the one in the link provided, discard it as it is not the final application form. The one you can open in this link is the alleged final and the other info contained is also the alleged final as you find a federal register notice from the treasury dept that could be published today. Sorry for all the confusion but we have attempted to stay on top of this issue at every move by the govt. According to the info in the link the loan process opens today. We advise you to check with your current bank and or lenders to find more details as they may know more. We hope this helps and we will continue to keep all informed as we receive more info. This link was provided to me by FL Senator Rubio’s office as he is Chair of the Senate Small Business Committee.
Industry Funded Economic Survey- It is very important that all fishermen fill out this survey when they receive it in the mail. This information is so NC can get an accurate value for our fishing industry. DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED!!
