Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees

The Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees program provides benefits for eligible unemployed former civilian Federal employees.

The program is administered by States as agents of the Federal government. This program is operated under the same terms and conditions that apply to regular State Unemployment Insurance. In general, the law of the State in which your last official duty station in Federal civilian service was located will be the State law that determines eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits.

There is no payroll deduction from a Federal employee's wages for unemployment insurance protection. Benefits are paid for by the various Federal agencies.

Benefits

The law of the State (under which the claim is filed) determines benefit amounts, number of weeks benefits can be paid, and other eligibility conditions.

Filing a Claim

You should contact your State Unemployment Insurance agency as soon as possible after becoming unemployed. In some States, you can now file a claim by telephone.
