Unemployment insurance

SmallBusiness.com: The free small business resource
Jump to: navigation, search

In the U.S., unemployment insurance refers to programs administered under the Federal-State Unemployment Insurance Program that provide unemployment benefits to eligible workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own (as determined under State law), and meet other eligibility requirements of State law. Unemployment insurance payments (benefits) are intended to provide temporary financial assistance to unemployed workers who meet the requirements of State law.

[edit] States administer unemployment insurance programs

Each State administers a separate unemployment insurance program within guidelines established by Federal law. Eligibility for unemployment insurance, benefit amounts and the length of time benefits are available are determined by the State law under which unemployment insurance claims are established.
