Public Assistance Programs Overview

Unemployment Insurance, often abbreviated as UI, is a federally mandated, individual state-run program that was initially developed in the 1930s as a response to the financial difficulties of the Great Depression. As the name implies, UI is exactly that: insurance. However, unemployment insurance is funded by employers through a federal payroll tax. There are three states that require minimal employee contributions, but on the whole, employees can expect to receive benefits at no cost. The goal of unemployment insurance is to provide eligible individuals with monetary benefits, thus allowing them to have a source of income while searching for a new job.
