1. Everyone is going to be eligible for an additional $600 on top of what the state amount normally is. The state amount is based on the wages you've earned during the previous years. This benefit will be available through July 31, 2020.
2. Self-employed and contractors are normally not eligible for benefits, however this bill makes them eligible for half the average state benefit plus the additional $600. This is great for many of the small business owners that are currently shut down due to stay at home guidelines.
3. There is an additional 13 weeks added to the state's normal unemployment period. Currently MO allows for 20 weeks (so you'd be allowed 33 weeks) and KS allows 26 weeks (so you'd be allowed 39).
4. There are lots of additional rules that will allow more people than ever. If someone hasn't worked long enough they will still be eligible. If someone had to stop working to care for a sick family member they will be eligible. If your hours were cut back you would still be eligible.
So the moral of the story is if you are not working for any reason and think you might be eligible then I would apply online. The state sites have been overloaded due to high demand, but keep trying. I'm sure many of these kinks will still need to be worked out, so be patient.
