The main purpose of unemployment benefits insurance is to offer workers who are discharged from work due to the company's financial problem, so they need to cut-down the expenses by reducing the number of employees. Unemployment benefit is ideal to provide unemployed workers a monetary assistance while they are still looking for a new job. This is important especially for single moms. These benefits are provided by a certain state unemployment insurance programs supported by the guidelines founded by the Federal law of the United States. The eligibility for this insurance, the amount of benefits as well as the specific time to receive is determined by the law of the state. Meaning not every state has the same law and criteria on how an unemployed worker can claim for unemployment benefits. In order to be eligible on receiving unemployment compensation, unemployed workers should meet all unemployment eligibility requirements for wages received or the time worked. Additionally, it is also very important to state if the unemployment is the fault of the employee or the employer.

These are attending school, engage in labor argument, self-employed, left to married, resigned due to illness (refer to disability benefits, especially if it is work-related), fired due to misconduct and quit with no good cause.
