State Unemployment Benefits

Share |

Unemployment benefits (also known as unemployment insurance) are provided to employees, who become unemployed through no fault of their own (typically the employer lays them off). In this case, the unemployed employee can obtain state monetary subsidies on a weekly basis, for a specified period of time or until the employee finds a new job. The employer pays into the "unemployment insurance" fund, and the specific monetary amounts and the duration of the benefits are determined uniquely by every state's laws. The following chart will provide you with the necessary contact information to obtain unemployment benefits in your state.
