​Unemployment Compensation

The Unemployment Compensation (UC ) program provides temporary income support if you

  • lose your job through no fault of your own, or
  • if you are working less than your full-time hours.

If you qualify, you will receive money for a limited time to help you meet expenses while you seek new employment. To be eligible for UC benefits, you must be a worker who performed services that are covered by the Pennsylvania UC Law.
