Use the policy advocacy briefs linked below to improve the UI program in your state. Each brief contains seven sections: key definitions; an overview of the topic; federal requirements and guidance; NELP’s recommendations for reforming current state policies; research findings and arguments to support reform; easy-to-follow information on how to find relevant data about UI in your state; and references and essential articles. The policy advocacy briefs are not intended to be exhaustive, but rather to highlight key recommendations and resources to advance UI policy reform.
The Dependent Allowance, Monetary Eligibility, and Overpayments and Waivers briefs have accompanying model state legislation. Go to Model State Legislation for suggested legislative text to implement the policy recommendations described in those policy advocacy briefs.
