I lost my job because of a hurricane. May I receive unemployment compensation?


FEMA does not provide assistance for wages lost due to a hurricane. But, Florida provides help through the State unemployment program.

For details on applying, see general disaster unemployment assistance information on FloridaJobs.org.
