When you collect unemployment, does the money come from the government or your boss?

Unemployment is actually an insurance policy that is required of employers to have.
They pay a premium based on the overall payroll.
The state subsidizes the insurance. When the Fed increases the weeks you can draw, they subsidize the states.

Money is taken out of your check every payday, your employer might contribute a little but it is mostly coming from you. That is why you have to work a job for a certain amount of time before you can draw unemployment.

Sherry, with all due respect, your answer is incorrect. Employers carry unemployment "insurance" so when an employee files to collect it comes out of this "fund". We, as employees, do not have any of our pay salary paid toward unemployment. I hope you do not mind my comment. I learn new things here all the time. I haven't been on your company's site very long and am undecided with all the religious questions however, I hope my comment does not cause you to keep your eyes on me. Enjoy your day. :-)
