There are several types of unemployment insurance or benefits. Unemployed people are entitled to the various types of unemployment insurance based on employment, earned wages, length of time jobless and eligibility for extended benefits. The Basic Unemployment Insurance is the basic unemployment benefit for workers up to 26 weeks. The State and the Federal government provide this.

The Extended unemployment benefits are available for qualified workers who have exhausted their regular state unemployment insurance during recession or high unemployment rates. The EUC or Emergency Unemployment Compensation provides addition weeks of benefits for those who have utilized their regular unemployment insurance during high unemployment.

The Disaster Unemployment Assistance offers unemployment benefits to persons whose employment or self-employment has been interrupted due to a major disaster that is declared by the President of the United States of America. An EB Program or Extended Benefits Program offers additional 13 to 20 weeks benefits to workers receiving state unemployment insurance in states with high unemployment rate. The Ex-Service Member Unemployment Insurance is eligible for members who were on active military duty but separated under honorable conditions. The claims are filed in the state where the ex-military lives. The Self-Employment Assistance Program is provided to unemployed workers starting on a small business. The state can pay a self-employed allowance instead of the regular unemployment benefits to help establish a business and become self-employed.
