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. New to unemployment? Start with the Pennsylvania UC Claimant Handbook to learn more about eligibility, benefit/payment information, and how to file a claim.
