Veterans' Unemployment Insurance Benefits

If you are a servicemember separating from active duty you may qualify for unemployment compensation if you are unable to find a new job. The Unemployment Compensation for Ex-service members (UCX) program provides benefits for eligible ex-military personnel. The program is administered by the States as agents of the Federal government.

You may be eligible if:

> You were on active duty with a branch of the U.S. military, and you have separated under honorable conditions.
> You should file for benefits in the week of your discharge date, as shown on your DD-214 (Discharge Papers).
> You are allowed to file a claim in the state whose soil you are standing on. There are no residency requirements that need to be met for UCX.
> Retirement pay and disability retirement pay reduces UCX benefits dollar for dollar. VA benefits do not affect UCX benefits.
