COVID-19 has impacted the freelance community greatly. While coping with a shortage of work, interpreters are also attempting to navigate various financial relief options covered in the new Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). From small business loans like the paycheck protection program (PPP) and the economic injury disaster loan (EIDL), to various types of unemployment programs, many interpreters are left confused and overwhelmed. In this workshop participants will gain insight on how these loans and programs apply to interpreters. Resources will also be shared to guide future research on participant’s unique circumstances.
- Participants will be able to identify the difference between the economic injury disaster loan (EIDL) and the paycheck protection program (PPP).
- Participants will understand how to use PPP funds appropriately to allow for maximum forgiveness.
- Participants will understand how the EIDL Advance differs from the EIDL in regards to forgiveness.
- Participants will be able to identify the difference between pandemic unemployment assistance (PUA) and unemployment insurance (UI).
- Participants will understand what pandemic emergency unemployment compensation (PEUC) means.

As a professional tax preparer (EA), author and seasoned speaker, Rosemary presents the complex world of taxes in plain language so that interpreters can thrive in the profession.
