News broke that New Jersey is planning on sending a fourth round of $300/weekly unemployment payments for those who are still in need.

The previous three rounds of $300/weekly unemployment payments did encounter some errors and did not send money to those that qualify.

There were quite a few people who were eligible but did not receive the financial assistance.

However, this additional round of money is going to be sent out because the money allotted for this program has not been exhausted just yet so more help is on the way.

You must confirm that you are unemployed because of the COVID-19 pandemic and you will receive either an email or text to confirm.

Here are the details:

1. You will receive a text message from 898-211 with further instructions on how you can confirm You should be able to directly respond to the text message to confirm that your unemployment is COVID-19 related.

2. You will receive an email from ui-noreply@dol.nj.gov which will have the display name "NJDOL." You can't confirm by replying to the email. Instead you must log on to your unemployment account and check the box that says "you certify" under self service options. 

Here is what the message will say:

Officials are not sure when the fourth round of unemployment payments will be be processed.

Just a reminder: to be eligible, you must have been unemployed between August 1st through September 5th and your unemployment benefits must be at least $100 per week. The maximum amount people are allowed to get is $1800.
