Can Individuals Who Are Not U.S. Citizens Collect Unemployment Insurance Benefits?

To collect UI benefits aliens must establish that they were in satisfactory immigration status and authorized to work in the United States when earning the wages used to establish their claim. In addition, the claimant must provide proof that they remain in satisfactory immigration status and are authorized to work each week that benefits are claimed. EDD verifies immigration status and work authorization through an electronic system maintained by the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
