<<Hi AllWould like to know how the unemployment benefits work? Do you have to be employed and laid off to claim this benefit?What about a spouse who didnt work in USA but got the green card? Is she eligible for the unemployment benefits?KCDesi >> Unemployment benefits are partially funded by Federal taxes, but mostly by state taxes and benefits are mostly controlled by state legislatures. That means that answers to your questions can vary depending on the state you live in, so you need to inquire about what your state provides to be sure of a correct answer.But, in general, people have to work and be paid within a state in order to qualify for unemployment benefits. Often, (as in Washington State), you will be denied benefits if you quit work voluntarily. And a person who has never worked in the United States generally wont be eligible for unemployment benefits.
