Summary

Unemployment compensation is important to military families, who cannot afford to lose income during a military move. Military spouses report that they frequently lose significant family income when moving from state to state.

Key Message

Providing unemployment compensation is both pragmatic and a matter of principle: A military family moves to fulfill military requirements and spouses should not be penalized by states for \"voluntary\" leaving employment.

Statistic

Frequent moves substantially impact the income of our Service families.
