US Personal Income Falls More than Expected in August
US personal income fell by 2.7 percent from a month earlier in August of 2020, following a revised 0.5 percent increase in July and compared to market expectations of a 2.4 percent drop. It is the 3rd biggest drop ever in personal income amid a decrease in unemployment insurance benefits. The Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation program which provided a temporary weekly supplemental payment of $600 for those receiving unemployment benefits expired on July 31st and was replaced by a $300 supplement. Partially offsetting the decrease in unemployment insurance benefits was an increase in compensation in August. Government wage and salary disbursements increased $17.5 billion in August, following a rise of $14.5 billion in July. Temporary and intermittent Census decennial workers boosted government wages and salaries by $10.8 billion.
