KKK Unemployment Insurance (UI)
(10/01/14 - 11/30/14)
Unemployment Insurance (UI) payments are countable as unearned income.
Unemployment insurance is an insurance benefit that may be paid to people when they have lost their jobs and meet other eligibility criteria. State governments pay unemployment insurance from a fund of unemployment taxes collected from employers.
Key the UI Unearned Income Code in the INC TYPE field on UNIC.
Consider the UI benefits available to the participant on the second workday(g) following the date benefits are issued. Use HOSC to identify the date benefits are issued.
When the customer states they have recently moved to Arizona investigate the possibility of out of state UI benefits.
When possible receipt of UI benefits from California is indicated, request verification from the State of California Employment Development Department (EDD). Mail an Authorization To Release Information (FA-059) form signed by the participant, along with a stamped, self-addressed return envelope to the California EDD Address.
When a low balance shows for the customers UI benefits, only budget the actual amount of benefits that are remaining. When the benefits run out after the current system month (CSM) and prior to the end of the current approval period complete the following:
Set a free form ACTS alert for the month prior to the month benefits are ending.

16 - Final pay
17 - Monetarily ineligible
28 - Claimant declines due to employment
NOTE When Pay Type Code 28 is used there is a possibility the customer may have new employment.
At the time of benefit approval there is no date in the ISSUE DATE field on HOSC.
