This report examines the antipoverty effects of unemployment insurance (UI) benefits during the past recession and the economic recovery. The analysis highlights the impact of the additional and expanded UI benefits available to unemployed workers through the Am. Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA; P.L. 111-5) and the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC08) program (Title IV of P.L. 110-252). In 2011, approx. 56% of all unemployed individuals were receiving UI benefits (down from a high of 66% in 2010) and thus were directly affected by legislative changes to the UI system. UI benefits appear to have a large poverty-reducing effect among unemployed workers who receive them. Given the extended length of unemployment among jobless workers, the additional weeks of UI benefits beyond the regular programäó»s 26-week limit appear to have had an especially important effect in poverty reduction. This  reportäó»s analysis shows that UI benefits appear to reduce the prevalance of poverty significantly among the population that receives them. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
