dc.description.abstract[Excerpt] Four groups of federal programs target unemployed workers: unemployment insurance programs, health care assistance, job search assistance, and training. This report describes these programs, how they interact with each other, and their funding. Unemployed workers and their families may experience substantial income loss. If the unemployed worker’s family income is low enough, there are a number of means-tested benefits and programs for which the unemployed worker’s family might qualify (e.g., Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, SSI, or Medicaid). Eligibility for such benefits is not conditional on an individual’s current employment status. This report does not attempt to discuss these means-tested benefits and programs.
