My daughter is a full time college student (junior year) that beginning in August 2019 (school started) got all of her spending money from refereeing. She made roughly $1500 as a referee in 2019 and used the current inability to referee as justification to file for unemployment. She was approved for $150 a week plus the CARES Act bonus of $600 per week ($3000 a month). She will get the California money until she Is able to referee again. We are not sure how long she will get the CARES Act money. It was a fairly easy process to apply. I would suggest that anyone who has kids that referee to have them apply. Or if you are currently unemployed due to COVID-19 to list refereeing as one of your sources of income when you apply for unemployment. It may help increase the amount you get weekly.
