Your income eligibility is based on current earnings of all persons living in your household going forward. Income should be based on your situation today, looking at eligible earnings going forward and not past income. So, if you and/or other members of your household have had a change in circumstances such as job loss or decreased wages, you may now qualify.

If you are receiving Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) payments under the Federal CARES act at the time of application, you can use your EDD award letter to calculate income based on how many weeks you are scheduled to receive payment. Refer to the Maximum Benefit Amount since at the time of enrollment this should be the maximum amount you would be scheduled to receive.
