Here Are The States Offering ‘Return-To-Work’ Bonuses As High As $2,000–And Which May Be Next

Help Wanted

Republican-controlled Montana became the first state to authorize a “return-to-work” bonus in early May as a way to replace the $300-per-week enhanced unemployment benefits that many GOP lawmakers claim disincentivize employment, offering $1,200 to then-unemployed individuals who complete four full weeks of paid work.

 

As more states start slashing the $300-per-week enhanced unemployment benefits, New York and North Carolina on Tuesday became the latest states moving on legislation that would authorize one-time “signing bonuses” for unemployed residents who find work—joining a handful of other states considering similar legislation and at least six that have already authorized such payments.
