Unemployment insurance helps persons and families keep afloat during hard times. Unemployment benefits provide a safety net for a lot of people, but there are also restrictions that apply. There are also some drawbacks to unemployment insurance.

For instance, a claimant should routinely answer queries regarding their job hunts and other income they received every time he or she files a claim. If job opportunities are limited, you could risk losing your benefits. Keep in mind that unemployment insurance is not free money because it comes from funds that you have paid already while you were still working and given back the moment you lost your job.

Another drawback is that the money you get is smaller than the salary you received before. An individual who receives unemployment benefits could experience negative effects of losing a paycheck, loss of personal identity and there are even times that it could lead to crime and even heart concerns for some people. Furthermore, the lapse of unemployment on a person’s resume could adversely affect finding a new job once the unemployment insurance runs out. The more there are people collecting benefits, the less money there would be in the unemployment insurance account to draw money from.
