Important Information for State Employees Regarding UI benefits During Budget Impasse

​8/1/15 -The current state budget situation presents a unique and fluid set of circumstances.  Existing precedent does not necessarily provide a definitive answer to every unemployment insurance question related to the situation.

Please note that individuals are ineligible for unemployment benefits if they continue to work as full-time employees of the state, even if they miss a paycheck.

Individuals are potentially subject to disqualification if they stop working and claim unemployment benefits in anticipation of possibly not receiving a paycheck on time.​
