What is unemployment insurance?
All employers contribute a percentage of their monthly payroll to a state and federally administered insurance program. These funds then are made available to elgible citizens who have been displaced from their employment. Eligible workers receive a bi-weekly check.
Who is eligible to receive unemployment compensation?
You are eligible to receive unemployment if your employer has paid unemployment taxes, if you were employed by the organization for at least thirty days and you meet the criteria established by the state.
How much money do I get, and how long does it last?
The amount of money you get and the length of time you receive it depends on how much money you made in the last four quarters you worked and the regulations of the state.
Job search assistance and re-employment services are available at the Career Centers and local county offices.
