Supplemental Unemployment Insurance

Could your family live on $22,000 a year?  Have you heard of Supplemental Unemployment Insurance?

Those who have done well financially often struggle the most on unemployemnt benefits. The average unemployed person has been out of work for 40 weeks. State unemployment typically pays only $60 a day - that’s like living on a salary of less than $22,000 a year!

State unemployment benefits were designed to replace 50% of a worker’s lost income; however, all states now cap the benefit amounts. If you earn more than $50,000 a year, unemployment benefits won’t come close to 50% of your former salary.

If you lose your job, you and your family risk serious financial hardship. Even if you have a nest egg, how long would that money last? How long would it cover your mortgage, health insurance premiums, and other necessities? If you’re like most Americans, you likely have a big gap in your insurance planning as it relates to unemployment benefits.

That’s why Wilson Insurance and Assura Group are introducing IncomeAssure® Supplemental Unemployment Insurance.

Supplemental unemployment insurance protects your salary and supplements your state benefits so that if you become unemployed, you can still collect up to 50% of your former salary.

Supplemental unemployment insurance can help your family stay afloat without draining your hard-earned savings.

  • Benefits are paid to you by check or direct deposit, for up to 24 weeks
  • Payments are triggered by the collection of state benefits and start two weeks after your state benefits begin
