我们的 进气管是开放的我们正在通过电话和虚拟会议与客户会面,并且我们将继续进行宣传工作。请注意,我们根据Cuomo州长的命令关闭了办公室。


我们的进气口仍按照 nylag.org/gethelp。该页面会实时更新,其中包含有关与我们联系的最新信息。


  • Individuals with up to $75,000 in adjusted gross income
  • Heads of household with up to $112,500
  • Married couples who file jointly with up to $150,000
  • Eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns for 2019 or 2020 will automatically receive an economic impact payment of up to $1,400 for individuals or $2,800 for married couples.
  • One of the differences with this bill is that there is no age limit on dependents. So in addition to the individual qualifications, those with dependents (children or adults), could receive an additional $1400 per dependent. For example, a family with a child and adult dependent could receive $5600 as part of this stimulus. 
  • If you earn between $75,000 and $80,000 as an individual or $160,000 as a married couple, you will likely receive a smaller check.
  • Individuals who earn more than $80,000, married couples who make more than $160,000 and heads of household making more than $120,000 likely will not receive any stimulus payment.
  • Payments will automatically go to individuals who receive Veteran pension of disability compensation and Social Security benefits.

Do immigrants or mixed-status households qualify?

  • Undocumented immigrants unfortunately are not eligible but their spouses and children are eligible as long as they have Social Security numbers.
  • Mixed-status households with undocumented family members will receive stimulus checks


  • The vast majority of people do not need to take any action. The IRS will calculate and automatically send the economic impact payment to those eligible within several weeks. You can check your payment status 这里.
  • If the IRS does not have your direct deposit information, there will likely be an opportunity in the future to use a web-based portal for individuals to provide their banking information to the IRS online, so that individuals can receive payments immediately as opposed to checks in the mail. See 这里 for further updates. 


  • 医疗补助. The payment does not count as “income” for Medicaid. If you are age 65+, blind, or disabled, it also will not count as a “resource” for 12 months after you receive it. In other words, it will not affect your Medicaid eligibility.
  • SSI and SSD. SSI will not consider economic impact payments as income for SSI recipients, and the payments are excluded from resources for 12 months.
  • 公共援助。 Stimulus payments are not counted as income for the purposes of Public Assistance. Receipt of the payment is not subject to the lump sum provisions. The payment will be excluded as a resource in the month received and the 12 months from the date of receipt. Any remaining funds after that will be counted as a non-exempt resource.
  • SNAP (Food Stamps). Stimulus payments are not counted as income for the purposes of SNAP. They are an exempt resource in the month received and in the 12 months from the date of receipt. Any remaining funds after that will be counted as a non-exempt resource.
  • VA好处。 就VA目的而言,经济影响付款不算作收入或资产。请务必在收到支票后的12个月内用完支票,因为剩余的刺激性资金将被视为资产。
  • 第8节. Because the stimulus payment is not income, it should not affect someone’s Section 8 share.
  • Emergency Assistance. For Emergency Assistance to Families (EAF), Emergency Safety Net Assistance (ESNA), and Emergency Assistance to Adults (EAA), stimulus checks are not counted as income or as a resource for 12 months from the date of receipt, in determining an individual’s eligibility for emergency assistance, which includes rent arrears grants.


  • 预计这笔付款将计为预付款退税,并且不计入收益或资源用途的应享权利中。
  • Your stimulus payment can be garnished in NYS by any NYS bank, creditors, or debt collector. 


What is a Child Tax Credit? In short, eligible families can receive a $3,000 annual benefit per child ages 6 to 17 and $3,600 per child under 6 in tax year 2021. The credit will also be fully refundable. This is in addition to the $1,400 stimulus checks and enhanced unemployment benefits. In a major update, you don’t have to be employed to get the credit.

Who is eligible for the Child Tax Credit?

  • Parents with children under the age of 18. (This will be the first time those with children aged 17 will receive the tax credit.)
  • Families with children under 6 will receive a $3,600 credit per child, while those with school-aged children will receive $3,000 per child. 

Will I get the full amount?

  • The full child tax credit will be available to individuals who earn up to $75,000 and couples earning up to $150,000. 
    • The credit will be reduced by $50 for every additional $1,000 of adjusted gross income (AGI) earned. (Important note: the $3,000 credit provided to parents of a child aged 6 to 17 would be phased out completely for individuals earning $95,000 and those making $170,000 and filing jointly.)
  • Families who are ineligible for the new $3,000 credit because they earn higher AGI are still able to claim the $2,000 per child tax credit.
    • This is available to individuals making up to $200,000 ($400,000 for married couples filing jointly).
  • Payments are expected this summer.

For tax purposes, does this count as income?

  • Child Tax Credits will not count as income in the month received and would only count as a resource if not spent within 12 months. 

IMPORTANT. You don’t have to be employed to get the child tax credit. Unlike in the past, households with no income can claim the credit. 

Under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, FEMA will provide financial assistance for COVID-19-related funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020. FEMA will begin to implement COVID-19 funeral assistance in April. Additional guidance is being finalized and will be released to potential applicants and community partners as soon as possible. In the meantime, people who have COVID-19 funeral expenses are encouraged to keep and gather documentation.

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible for funeral assistance, you must meet these conditions:

  • The death must have occurred in the United States (U.S.), including the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.
  • The death certificate must indicate the death was attributed to COVID-19.
  • The applicant must be a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or a qualified non-citizen who incurred funeral expenses after January 20, 2020.
  • There is no requirement for the deceased person to have been a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or qualified non-citizen.

How to Apply

In April, FEMA will begin accepting applications. If you had COVID-19 funeral expenses, we encourage you to keep and gather documentation. Types of information should include:

  • An official death certificate that attributes the death directly or indirectly to COVID-19 and shows that the death occurred in the United States, including the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.
  • Funeral expenses documents (receipts, funeral home contract, etc.) that include the applicant’s name, the deceased person’s name, the number of funeral expenses, and the dates the funeral expenses happened.
  • Proof of funds received from other sources specifically for use toward funeral costs. We are not able to duplicate benefits received from burial or funeral insurance, financial assistance received from voluntary agencies, government agencies, or other sources.

How are Funds Received

  • If you are eligible for funeral assistance you will receive a check by mail, or funds by direct deposit, depending on which option you choose when you apply for assistance.

The NYC Civil Courts are continually updating and changing court procedures. The courts have provided a contact number where you can receive the most up-to-date information, which is available citywide Monday through Friday from 9 am – 5 pm. The number is 646-386-5409.





  • New court cases are being filed in the NYC Civil Courts.
  • 也有可能在法院关闭之前提起诉讼,而您刚刚收到有关提起诉讼的通知。
  • If you have been sued you need to file an answer within 20 days, if the papers were given to you personally. If you received the papers any other way you have 30 days to answer. Nevertheless, even if you missed these deadlines you should still try to file your answer as soon as possible because the court will most likely accept the late answer. If you do not answer at all, you could suffer a default judgment.
  • To file your answer you can go to court to file your answer or submit your answer by mail. If by mail, you can fill out an answer form and mail a copy of the answer to the attorney for the Plaintiff AND the court. For consumer credit actions, you can use this  form to fill out your answer.


What to Do If You Just Learned about a Default Judgment

Many people first learn about a lawsuit against them when a judgment is enforced (action is taken to collect money allegedly owed) or after they receive a debt collection letter from the judgment creditor asking for payment. Judgment creditors most often enforce judgments by freezing your bank account or by hiring a Marshal to send a request to your employer to garnish (or take money from) your wages.

If you discover that you have a default judgment you can go to the court to file a request that the court vacates (get rid of) the judgment against you. This request is called an “Order to Show Cause to Vacate a Default Judgment.”

Family and Supreme Courts are physically closed except for individuals who are ordered by the Court to appear in person, or for individuals who have no ability to access the courts through technology, including phone.

Supreme Court is accepting all filings. Family Courts are accepting all filings, but they continue to prioritize the scheduling of emergency filings which include new requests for orders of protection or violations of existing orders, writs, and some juvenile delinquency and child protective matters.

You can file custody/visitation and support matters, but it is unclear how long it will take to receive a court date for those cases. Please see the section on “New York State Courts” on this page for more information on these matters. To file:

  • Orders of protection/ Writs:
    • To file, pro se litigants may email their applications to: NYFCApplications@nycourts.gov. You can also call to get filing assistance from a court clerk, at 646-386-5299. For non-urgent matters, you may also mail applications to the relevant Family Court. If you need assistance in filing for an order of protection, please reach out to our DVLU Unit, Safe Horizon, or the Family Justice Centers to receive immediate assistance.
  • At this point, all cases that were filed before the pandemic that was delayed and had no court appearances in the pandemic should have received a new court date. If you filed a case in advance of the pandemic and still don’t have a court date, you should reach out to the court clerk and/or check Webfamily at https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fcasfamily/main to find out your next court date. Please keep in mind the need to update the court with any current contact information if that has changed, or you may miss notices.
  • Nearly all court appearances are being conducted remotely by Microsoft Teams or telephone.
  • All criminal court, family court, and Supreme Court orders of protection are extended by administrative order. Click here for the official order. Still, for orders of protection to be valid, new orders should be re-served if both parties were not present together the last time the order was extended.
  • Family Justice Centers (FJC), staffed by NYLAG and other NYC organizations, are available remotely to provide guidance on immediate safety planning, shelter assistance, and community resources. From Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., clients can call their nearest FJC (information available 这里. Manhattan and Staten Island FJCs have limited days when people can appear in person for services, as well.
  • In the evenings and/or on weekends, clients should call NYC’s 24-hour Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-621-4673. For emergencies, as always, call 911. · A helpful resource for safety planning during COVID -19 be found 这里.


Paid Sick Leave and Family Leave

  • New York State Paid Sick Leave: **As of January 1, 2021, New York State mandates paid sick leave, including for reasons unrelated to COVID. This law is permanent, and it is separate from New York State’s previously enacted Emergency COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave Law. It requires employers with five or more employees or a net income of more than $1 million to provide paid sick leave, and to employers with fewer than five employees and a net income of $1 million or less, to provide unpaid sick leave to employees. Covered employees in New York State began to accrue leave under this law at the rate of one hour for every 30 hours worked. More information about this law is available 这里.
  • New York State Family Leave Law and New York City Paid Sick Leave: Aside from the new state measures, employees may be eligible for additional leave under the pre-existing NYS Paid Family Leave Law and the NYC Earned Safe and Sick Time Act.
  • The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”) required that employers with fewer than 500 employees provide sick and family leave benefits for certain COVID-19 related reasons. It provided up to 12 weeks of paid leave for employees whose children’s schools have closed or whose childcare providers are unavailable due to the coronavirus pandemic. In addition, the FFCRA provided up to 2 weeks of paid sick time for those who have been advised by a medical provider to self-isolate due to coronavirus concerns.
  • **Unfortunately, the FFCRA expired on December 31, 2020 and was not renewed by Congress in its most recent pandemic relief package. That means that employers will not be required to provide paid leave under the FRCRA after December 31, 2020. However, some employers may voluntarily choose to continue to provide FFCRA benefits, because covered employers are eligible for tax credits through March 31, 2021 if they continue to provide FFCRA leave. Employees who already took leave in 2020 will not necessarily be eligible for additional leave, even if their employer chooses to extend those benefits.


  • Employers are prohibited from harassing, firing, or discriminating against you because of your race/ethnicity, disability, nationality, and other “protected classes.”
    • For example, an employer cannot force you to get a COVID test or quarantine simply because you are Asian.
  • Employers are required to provide reasonable accommodation to employees who request one based on a disability, including relating to an employees’ potential risk of contracting COVID-19.
    • For example, if your doctor recommends that you work from home, or adjust your schedule, or take medical leave related to your risk of exposure, you may request such accommodations, and your employer is required to acknowledge your request, and engage in an individualized process to determine whether it can grant you the request, including putting in writing if it cannot grant the request.
  • It is illegal for employers to retaliate against employees for requesting or asserting their rights under any of the above laws, including for reporting health/safety hazards.

  • Both the federal government and NYS are establishing relief programs for borrowers who are unable to make mortgage payments due to the impact of the coronavirus crisis. New York State is working on a Homeowner Assistance Fund to provide relief for our state’s most vulnerable homeowners. The details of the program will be available later this year.
  • Borrowers with a direct financial loss due to the pandemic should contact their mortgage servicers to discuss options. The lender will be the one making the final determination if a borrower qualifies for any forbearance or repayment plan.
  • 那些可以继续在财务上继续进行抵押付款的人应该这样做。


  • Residential foreclosure court cases have resumed in New York. Homeowners with pending foreclosure cases should contact the court asap to find out the status of their case. Homeowners experiencing a hardship related to COVID may file a hardship declaration to have their foreclosure cases stayed until August 31, 2021.

If you would like assistance completing the hardship declaration or have specific questions about your foreclosure case, please call NYLAG at 212.946.0349 或电子邮件 contactfpp@nylag.org for a free consultation.

We understand that many New Yorkers are anxious about their ability to pay back-rent. Please know there are billions of dollars of rent relief for tenants nationwide.

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program (“ERAP”) opened to applications on June 1, 2021. You need to apply online through this portal. You should apply if you have experienced financial hardship during the pandemic and have any rent arrears from March 13, 2020 and on. The program covers up to 12 months of back rent and three months of ongoing rent. Immigration status does not matter and the money does not need to be paid. If you back rent and are behind on your gas and/or electric bill, ERAP will also cover your utility arrears. There are many organizations that are assisting people to complete applications. You can find a list of these organizations 这里. The application consists of two main parts:

  1. Using an online form you input information input about yourself, the financial hardship you faced because of COVID-19, the people in your household, your income, information about your lease and the back rent that you owe, your utility arrears if you have any, and any prior rental assistance you might have received.
  2. After you submit that online form, you have to upload a number of documents to show the following: (a) the identity of each member of your household, (b) your address, (c) the income of all the people in your household, (d) a document showing what your monthly rent is, (e) documents relating to utility arrears if you’re applying for utility arrears. You can find a list of these documents 这里.

To be approved for assistance, you need to complete both parts of the application. Some may find the document upload process challenging. If you have any problems you should definitely reach out for assistance. Once your application, if you have a case in Housing Court, your case in Housing Court will be stayed pending a determination of your eligibility for the program. If you’re found eligible, the money will be sent directly to your landlord via direct deposit.

The Eviction Moratorium is in effect until August 31, 2021

  • On May 4, 2021, New York state passed a law extending the eviction moratorium from May 1, 2021 to August 31, 2021!
  • To be protected by the eviction moratorium, New Yorkers who have experienced hardship during the COVID-19 period must submit a Hardship Declaration (if you haven’t already) to the Court or their landlord to stay an eviction—or even the filing of an eviction case—until August 31, 2021. 
  • Once a tenant signs the hardship declaration and gives it to their landlord or the Housing Court, any existing eviction case is stayed until August 31, 2021. That means nothing can happen in the case until August 31, 2021. A hardship declaration is a form published by the state court system in which a tenant makes a sworn statement by checking a box on the form that they:
      1. have experienced financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic
      2. and/or if the tenant had to leave their home now, it would pose a significant health risk because the tenant or one or more members of the tenant’s household have an increased risk for severe illness or death from COVID-19 due to being over the age of 65, having a disability, or having an underlying medical condition.
  • If your landlord has not already sued you in Housing Court and you give your landlord the hardship declaration, the landlord can’t start any case in Housing Court until August 31, 2021.
  • The landlord can still send rent demands.  Landlords can still send you letters and rent demands for any rent they claim you owe during this time.  However, those rent demands must now come with the hardship declaration. If you provide the hardship declaration to your landlord or the court, that will stop your landlord from starting its case in court until August 31, 2021.
  • 目前,您仍然有义务支付租金。 However, as a result of the Tenant Safe Harbor Act, which became law in the summer of 2020, you cannot be evicted for any rent that became due after March 7, 2020, if you experienced financial hardship after March 7, 2020. But your landlord will still be able to sue you in Housing Court for unpaid rent and get a money judgment. Landlords won’t be able to evict you for post-March 7, 2020 rent that you owe until all parts of the state of emergency are lifted, which will likely not be for several months and possibly longer.
  • If you entered into an agreement in court prior to the moratorium that required you to pay rent by a certain date and you can no longer make that payment, your landlord cannot call the marshal/sheriff/law enforcement agency to evict you until February 25, 2021, and a status conference is held. That stay of eviction can be extended to August 31, 2021 if you give your landlord or the court the hardship declaration.

  • Landlords can file new cases. But when a landlord starts a new case, they must provide proof that they served you with the hardship declaration before they started the case. If you receive a hardship declaration from your landlord, sign it, and return it to your landlord (or the court), the landlord can’t start the case against you or move forward with a case until August 31, 2021.
  • There is a limited exception. Landlords can start new cases and not be stopped by the new law, but only if a tenant, “is persistently and unreasonably engaging in behavior that substantially infringes on the use and enjoyment of other tenants or occupants or causes a substantial safety hazard to others, provided.” The law also has a number of safeguards built in to prevent landlords from abusing this limited exception to do an end run around the law.

  • New York State Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits are available to workers who have lost work through no fault of their own, including for reasons related to the Coronavirus pandemic. These benefits are not available to workers who are employed and able to work remotely, or to those on paid leave.
  • 点击这里 for the current Department of Labor (DOL) instructions for filing an unemployment insurance claim online. Note that New York State is waiving the statutory 7-day waiting period to apply.
  • The federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act significantly expanded on the protections of the NYS UI system, adding the following programs:
    • Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA): is available to workers ineligible for traditional UI benefits, including independent contractors, self-employed workers, students, and those without sufficient work history to qualify for state UI benefits. PUA is available to those who have lost their jobs for reasons directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic and may be available to workers who are forced to quit their jobs due to the pandemic. However, it is not advisable to quit your job in order to receive unemployment insurance benefits. PUA has been extended in the most recent COVID relief law and is now available under September 6, 2021. The maximum duration of PUA benefits has been increased to 79 weeks. 

    • Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (PUC): adds a supplemental payment of $300 per week to claimants’ weekly UI earnings. That $300 payment has been renewed in the most recent COVID relief law and has been extended through September 6, 2021. (This is the same payment that had previously been a $600 benefit, which expired in the last full week of July 2020 and was replaced with the $300 payment per week from December 28, 2020 through March 14, 2021.)

    • Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC): extends UI benefits beyond the typical benefit year, and has been extended in this most recent COVID relief law, to between 79 and 86 weeks of benefits (depending on the state’s unemployment rate). (The original program expired on December 27, 2020 and was extended through March 14, 2021, for a total of 24 weeks of additional benefits.)
    • Lost Wages Assistance (LWA): This is no longer in effect. It was a partial and temporary replacement for the $600 per week PUC payment. It paid eligible claimants a supplement of $300 per week, retroactive to August 1, 2020 through September 6, 2020. The LWA program ended with the December 27, 2020 COVID-19 relief package.

    • Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC): originally this program added 13 weeks of benefits for individuals who had been on UI benefits but had exhausted their initial 26 weeks of state benefits. The original program expired on December 27, 2020 and has now been extended through March 14, 2021, and increased to provide a total of 24 weeks of additional benefits.

    • Extended Benefits (EB): This is no longer in effect. EB added another 20 weeks to a claimant’s individual eligibility, effective May 3, 2020, on top of the initial 13 weeks of PEUC that were added to a claimant’s initial 26 weeks of UI benefits. This brought the total duration of UI benefits to 59 weeks. EB was not extended by Congress in the COVID-19 relief package.

    • Updated information from the NY DOL about claimants’ eligibility under the above programs remains to be updated.

    • 移民仅在可以提供有效社会安全号码或工作授权的UI下才有资格。

    • Claimants who are denied benefits are entitled to ask for a hearing. You will know you were denied benefits if you receive a Notice of Determination, explaining the reasons for your denial. More information about the hearing process is available 这里.

    • The DOL is in the process of establishing a waiver application, which would allow claimants to request forgiveness of overpayments of federal unemployment insurance, i.e., benefits that were paid to claimants who were later found not to be eligible. A claimant who received an overpayment of benefits may apply for a waiver if the claimant was not at fault for the overpayment, and if the claimant can show that recovery of the overpayment would be “contrary to equity and good conscious.” The DOL is still developing the application process and it is expected to announce the program on its website soon.


Governor Cuomo announced on January 18, 2021 new measures for the eligibility and payment of partial unemployment benefits. Under this new system, unemployed New Yorkers can work up to seven days per week and still receive some unemployment benefits as long as they work fewer than 30 hours and earn no more than $504 in gross pay.

The changes will go into effect for work done on or after Monday, January 18, 2021, which unemployed New Yorkers certify for starting on Sunday, January 24, 2021.

The new method of calculating partial benefits is outlined below:

  • New Yorkers who work between zero and four hours in a week and earn no more than $504 will receive their full unemployment benefit;
  • New Yorkers who work between four and ten hours in a week and earn no more than $504 will receive 75 percent of their unemployment benefit;
  • New Yorkers who work between ten and 20 hours in a week and earn no more than $504 will receive half of their unemployment benefit;
  • New Yorkers who work between 20 and 30 hours in a week and earn no more than $504 will receive 25 percent of their unemployment benefit;
  • New Yorkers who work over 30 hours in a week, regardless of earnings, will not receive any of their unemployment benefits.

New Yorkers will still be required to submit weekly certifications online or over the phone to receive their benefits each week. Claimants should know that, for the time being, they will still be asked how many “days” they worked in the previous week. Claimants should add up

the total number of hours they worked in that previous week and use the following guidelines for reporting “days” worked:

  • New Yorkers who work between zero and four hours in a week should report zero days worked
  • New Yorkers who work between four and ten hours in a week should report one day worked
  • New Yorkers who work between ten and 20 hours in a week should report two days worked
  • New Yorkers who work between 20 and 30 hours in a week should report three days worked
  • New Yorkers who work over 30 hours in a week should report four days worked
