If you worked for a non-profit and they don’t pay into the system? Are you eligible for unemployment ?

Q) What if you worked for a non-profit in a state where you don’t live and they don’t pay into the system? Are you eligible to collect unemployment ?

A) Unfortunately not all non-profit organizations are required to pay state unemployment insurance taxes, only those that meet specific staffing and wage requirements. These requirements are established and governed at the state level. If the non-profit organization you worked for did not pay into your state unemployment insurance fund you may not be able to claim unemployment benefits. Source:

  1. If you are seeking unemployment insurance benefits because you were fired you may not qualify if you were found to be at fault. You must be out of work through no fault of your own. Workers who are laid off for economic reasons due to a plant closing, a reduction-in-force (RIF), or because of lack of work, for example are eligible for unemployment benefits. But employees who are fired are not always eligible for unemployment benefits if it was due to a fault on their part. If you can prove that you were fired for no foult of your own you my qualify for unemployment insurance benefit.
