Unemployment Compensation
National Summary
The Social Security Act of 1935 created the Federal-State Unemployment Compensation (UC) Program. The program has two main objectives: (1) to provide temporary and partial wage replacement to involuntarily unemployed workers who were recently employed; and (2) to help stabilize the economy during recessions. The U.S. Department of Labor oversees the system, and each state also administers its own unemployment insurance program.
