Employment Topics

Unemployment Insurance

Unemployment insurance is an important support for jobless Americans, although how best to structure benefits is the subject of ongoing debate. 

We are evaluating the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the unemployment compensation provisions of ARRA, addressing questions relating to extended and emergency benefits that became available through the Emergency Unemployment Compensation Act of 2008 (EUC08) and related legislation. Reducing veteran unemployment is another special policy concern, and the Army UCX Claimants initiative awarded grants to Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, and Texas, states with large veteran populations, to spur improvement in reemployment services for this group. Mathematica is evaluating this pilot initiative, which leverages assets and shares data across the unemployment insurance and workforce systems and the Army, examining projects in each state and identifying the extent to which they achieve the initiative's goals.
