Governor Jared Polis signed an Executive Order on May 19, 2021 creating a new monetary incentive program to support unemployed Coloradans as they return to work full time. Under the Colorado Jumpstart incentive program, unemployed individuals are eligible to receive an incentive of up to $1,600 to support the transition into full-time work.

Eligible claimants who return to work between May 16 and May 29, 2021 can receive a Colorado Jumpstart Bonus of $1,600. Eligible claimants who return to work between May 30 and June 26, 2021 can receive a Colorado Jumpstart Bonus of $1,200. The Colorado Jumpstart Bonus is taxable and will be taxed at the percentage a claimant has previously selected.
