最新資訊

我們的 進氣管是開放的我們正在通過電話和虛擬會議與客戶會面,並且我們將繼續進行宣傳工作。請注意,我們根據Cuomo州長的命令關閉了辦公室。

如果您有關於NYLAG的有效案件,包括即將進行的法院案件,如果有任何疑問,請與您的NYLAG案件處理人員聯繫。

我們的進氣口仍按照 nylag.org/gethelp。該頁面會實時更新,其中包含有關與我們聯繫的最新信息。

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.

現有法院案件

如果您有任何即將到來的開庭日期的正在進行的法院案件,該開庭日期將自動推遲,直到法院重新開放以審理消費者債務案件。您將通過明信片收到有關新日期的通知,該明信片將來自法院。請確保打開您的郵件以檢查新的開庭日期。

您還可以檢查eCourts系統,這是紐約州在紐約提交的許多案件的在線數據庫。您可以在這裡訪問。如eCourts網站上所述,該信息可能不會使用最新信息進行更新。

新案件

  • New court cases are being filed in the NYC Civil Courts.
  • 也有可能在法院關閉之前提起訴訟,而您剛收到有關提起訴訟的通知。
  • 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.

如果您對填寫答案有疑問,請聯繫NYLAG(請參閱以下信息)。

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.”

誰有資格?

  • Eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns for 2019 will automatically receive an economic impact payment of up to $600 for individuals or $1,200 for married couples and up to $600 for each qualifying child 17 years old and under.
  • 調整後的個人總收入不超過$75,000,已婚夫婦提交聯合申報表的不超過$150,000的納稅人將獲得全額付款。
  • For filers with income above those amounts, the payment amount is reduced by $5 for each $100 above the $75,000 for single filers, $150,000 thresholds for joint filers, and $112.500 for those who filed as head of household.
  • Single filers with income exceeding $87,000 and $174,000 for joint filers with no children are not eligible.
  • Payments will now go automatically to individuals who receive Veterans 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 now receive stimulus checks that they were denied under the first round of legislation
    • Additionally, this new bill also retroactively makes mixed-status families with one Social Security number-holder eligible for the $1,200 per household and $500 per child checks allocated by the CARES Act, which was enacted in late March.

我什麼時候可以看到付款?

  • 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 of the bill being signed.
  • If the IRS does not have your direct deposit information, there will likely be an opportunity to use the  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. 在這裡查看更多信息.

這項刺激性付款是否會影響我獲得公共援助,醫療補助,SNAP或第8節津貼(或其他)的資格?

*These answers are based on the previous stimulus payment info

  • 醫療補助。該付款不算作醫療補助的“收入”。如果您的年齡在65歲以上,是盲人或殘障人士,則在您收到該信息後的12個月內,該信息也不會被視為“資源”。換句話說,它不會影響您的醫療補助資格。
  • SSI和SSD。SSI不會將經濟影響付款視為SSI接收者的收入,並且在12個月內將這些付款從資源中排除。
  • 公共援助。就公共援助而言,刺激付款不算作收入。收款不受一次性規定的約束。付款將在收到的月份和之後的兩個月中作為資源排除在外。之後的所有剩餘資金將被視為非豁免資源
  • SNAP(食品券)。就SNAP而言,刺激付款不算作收入。在收到的月份和之後的一個月內,它們是免稅資源。之後的所有剩餘資金將被視為非豁免資源。
  • VA好處。就VA目的而言,經濟影響付款不算作收入或資產。請務必在收到支票後的12個月內用完支票,因為剩餘的刺激性資金將被視為資產。
  • 第8節. Because the stimulus payment is not income, it should not affect someone’s Section 8 share.

其他重要信息:

  • 預計這筆付款將計為預付款退稅,並且不計入收益或資源用途的應享權利中。
  • 任何紐約州的銀行,債權人或收債員都不能在紐約州將您的刺激付款扣押。 
  • 該付款不算作醫療補助的“收入”。如果您的年齡在65歲以上,是盲人或殘障人士,則在您收到該信息後的12個月內,該信息也不會被視為“資源”。換句話說,它不會影響您的醫療補助資格。

Paid Sick Leave and Family Leave

  • 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.

  • You can find more information about the FFCRA eligibility here: 員工情況說明書Fact Sheet for Employers,問題和解答.

  • New York State’s Emergency COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave Law grants a minimum of 5 days of paid quarantine if your employer has 10 or more employees or over $1 million in annual income, and at least 14 days of paid quarantine for employers with 100+ employees. Note that an employee must be able to show that a public health official mandated that they quarantine. More information about this law is available 這裡.

  • **As of January 1, 2021, New York State mandates paid sick leave, including for reasons unrelated to COVID. This law requires employers with five or more employees or net income of more than $1 million to provide paid sick leave, and to employers with fewer than five employees and 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 new paid sick leave law is available 這裡.

  • Aside from the new state and federal emergency 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.

歧視與報復

  • 由於您的種族/民族,殘障,國籍和其他“受保護的階級”,禁止雇主騷擾,解僱或歧視您(例如,雇主不能僅僅因為您是亞洲人而強迫您進行自我檢疫)。

  • 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.

NEW RULES IN NEW YORK FOR PARTIAL UNEMPLOYMENT IN EFFECT JANUARY 18, 2021 

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 benefit. 

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 

More information on the DOL website, including a FAQ, is available 這裡.

抵押救濟

  • 聯邦政府和紐約州都在為那些由于冠狀病毒危機而無法償還抵押貸款的借款人建立救濟計劃。借款人應聯繫其抵押貸款服務商討論選擇方案。

  • 借款人必須證明由於大流行而造成的直接經濟損失,而藉款人將最終確定借款人是否符合任何寬容或還款計劃的條件。

  • 那些可以繼續在財務上繼續進行抵押付款的人應該這樣做。

  • If you are experiencing a covid-19 related hardship you may request a temporary stay of the commencement of any foreclosure lawsuit by submitting a Hardship Declaration in Foreclosure Matters to your servicer asap. A copy of the required declaration can be found 這裡.

止贖

  • On December 28, 2020, Governor Cuomo signed the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020 and temporarily stayed all foreclosure cases for 60 (sixty) days.

  • If you are experiencing a covid-19 related hardship you may request a further stay of your foreclosure case by submitting a Hardship Declaration in Foreclosure Matters. The required declaration can be found 這裡.

  • 尚待處理聯邦法院案件的房主應盡快與法院聯繫,以了解案件情況。

If you would like assistance completing the hardship declaration or have specific questions about your foreclosure case, please call NYLAG at 212.946.0349 或電子郵件 [email protected] for a free consultation.

Evictions

  • Evictions and all eviction cases are stayed for 60 days as of December 28, 2020 (until February 26, 2021). This stay, which means nothing can happen or move forward in any eviction case in New York State, is part of the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act, which became law on December 28, 2020.
  • The purpose of the 60-day period is to give tenants who are experiencing financial hardship the chance to provide their landlord with a hardship declaration (English version | Spanish version).
  • . Once a tenant signs the hardship declaration and gives it to their landlord or the Housing Court, any existing eviction case is stayed until at least May 1, 2021. That means nothing can happen in the case until May 1, 2021 at the earliest. The 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
      • have experienced a financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic
      • 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 May 1, 2021 at the earliest.
  • 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 May 1, 2021 at the earliest.
  • 目前,您仍然有義務支付租金。 However, as a result of the Tenant Safe Harbor Act, which became law this summer, 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 May 1, 2021 if you give your landlord or the court the hardship declaration

 Other Housing Court Matters

  • 房屋法庭向住戶開放提起訴訟 例如房東的非法停工,公寓維修以及處理嚴重維修命令的申請。您可以找到有關如何提交此類案件的更多信息。 這裡.
  • 所有待解決的房屋法院案件仍被推遲。 不出現。新的出現日期將直接發送給您。
  • 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 May 1, 2021 at the earliest.
  • 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.
  • 如果您從房東,他們的律師或房屋法院收到任何法律文件,請不要忽略它。 請通過以下方式聯繫NYLAG的NY COVID-19法律資源熱線 (929) 356-9582 要么 線上,或位於 (718) 557-1379[email protected],或訪問他們的 網站.
  • 非法停工 如果您是紐約市的房客,則可以在急診室提起訴訟,然後放回您的單位。法院和紐約市將所有驅逐後和非法停工案件移交給法律諮詢權組織,無論您身在何處或您的收入如何。
  • 當公寓有危險或非法時,仍會發出空缺命令,只有城市機構才能發出。 業主沒有法律授權直接發出空置命令。在這次危機期間,我們希望撤消訂單的情況很少,這是對真正危險情況的響應或火災的結果。發出空置命令後,租戶有權使用市政府機構提供的搬遷服務。在危機期間,搬遷服務保持開放。

NYCHA和第8節居民

  • 第8節代金券: 雖然HPD第8節客戶服務辦公室不對公眾開放,但HPD第8節客戶團隊仍然對公眾開放。由於收入下降而面臨租金困難的憑單持有人應發送電子郵件 [email protected] 或傳真至212-863-5299。
  • 在此期間,任何設置為過期的HPD第8節憑證都將自動更新。客戶不需要聯繫HPD進行擴展。 
  • 在此過程中,所有補貼終止都將暫停,直到另行通知。所有租戶會議和簡報會均已推遲,將重新安排。所有上訴聽證會均被取消,直至另行通知。 HPD將繼續支付補貼,直到做出最終決定。
  • NYCHA減租:根據以下內容,家庭可能有資格獲得NYCHA租金減免: 租金困難。 NYCHA簡化了其“租金困難政策”,以便在COVID-19危機期間更輕鬆地減少NYCHA的租金。
  • 如果某人的工作時間被削減或因工作而失業,NYCHA會通過臨時重新認證接受申請。
  • 現在,家庭可以通過新的簡化版提交收入變動臨時重新認證 自助服務門戶 interface
  • 沒有等待期可以申請。
  • 在另行通知之前,NYCHA居民可以自行證明其收入損失。這意味著目前不需要通常需要提交臨時重新認證的證明文件,例如工資單,雇主的來信和/或失業救濟金的核實。
  • 現在,家庭可以通過電話聯繫客戶聯繫中心(CCC)發出這些請求。 NYCHA CCC工作人員可以回答與針對COVID-19緊急狀態而製定的“租金困難政策”相關的問題。住戶可以打電話 718-707-7771 並選擇選項5。
  • 租戶保護有關受COVID-19影響的租戶的信息資源,可在市長保護租戶辦公室的網頁上找到: Information and Resources for NYC Tenants Impacted by COVID-19.

租金/緊急援助和持續的現金援助福利

  • New York State recently extended its rent relief program to help tenants who have lost income during the COVID-19 crisis. The NYS COVID Rent Relief Program, which is administered by the state agency called Homes and Community Renewal, HCR, will provide eligible households with a one-time rental subsidy that will be sent directly to the household’s landlord. Accepted applicants are not required to repay this assistance. Applications for the COVID Rent Relief Program reopened on December 18, 2020 and applications must be submitted online or by mail by February 1, 2021. If you already applied, you don’t need to reapply. Detailed information about the program can be found on the Homes and Community Renewal website: https://hcr.ny.gov/RRP.
  • 客戶可以通過ACCESS HRA申請緊急援助贈款以及持續的現金援助。要申請現金援助,客戶無需申請緊急贈款,但我們會在在線申請過程中提出問題,以確保不需要緊急贈款以確保客戶的財務安全。因此,每個ACCESS HRA Cash Assistance應用程序都以一系列緊急指示器問題開頭。

  • 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.

  • 點擊這裡 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): 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.

    • Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (PUC): added a supplemental payment for $600 per week to claimants’ weekly UI earnings. That $600 payment expired in the last full week of July 2020 and was replaced with an additional $300 payment per week from December 28, 2020 through March 14, 2021.

    • Lost Wages Assistance (LWA): 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 new 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): 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 is available 這裡.

    • 移民僅在可以提供有效社會安全號碼或工作授權的UI下才有資格。

    • 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 這裡.

    • The DOL recently established a process for requesting a waiver to forgive 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.” More information about this process is available 這裡.
