Unemployment Insurance

Unemployment Insurance has been in existence since 1939.  The purpose of unemployment insurance benefits is to provide short term replacement of lost wages to individuals who lose their jobs through no fault of their own. The money for unemployment benefits is solely funded by employers by paying taxes into the unemployment insurance trust fund.
