    As of today I'm no longer a freeloader. My last unemployment check has been direct deposited and next week I get my first paycheck from my new job.

    You guys think that unemployment benefits are "a government handout?" :?

    The person that gets the benefits has paid into UI. Actually, their employer has BUT that is factored into the cost of hiring you for the employer. So the first 26 weeks really aren't welfare or a handout.

    Realistically, the federal extensions after the first 26 weeks are basically welfare and handouts. :shattered: No so for the first 26 weeks of regular UI.

    Is there actually a pool of invested money, like real insurance, or is this just another tax and handout scheme, like social security?

    So it appears that "we" also pay into a federal UI scheme as well.

    As long as you were a productive member of society, you were never a "freeloader"....you never get back from the government what they take from you!!!
