When can I first file for Unemployment Insurance benefits in Maryland?

To assist you in filing your tax returns, the Maryland State Department of Labor will send you an IRS Form 1099-G showing the total amount of unemployment insurance benefits paid to you during the previous year. You may elect to have taxes deducted from unemployment insurance payments.
You can choose to have either Federal taxes, Maryland state taxes, both or neither deducted from your payment. You must sign and return the W-4 form to us before any taxes can be withheld from your unemployment insurance benefits.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
