I currently work for a church full time. My employment will end. Am I able to claim unemployment benefits?

Q) I currently work for a church full time as a preschool director. My employment with the church will end in May or June. Are people who work for a church full time able to draw unemployment? Are part-time staff able to draw unemployment

A) Churches and religious organizations are exempt from paying unemployment taxes. Therefore you may not be able to claim unemployment benefits as the church did not pay into the state unemployment benefit program. Please contact your local unemployment office to verify and enquirer what other options may be available to you in your state.

  1. I went to Centerville office today – their office hours show every day on the door – Tuesday and Thursday on line. I was there from 1:45 – 2:15pm and doors were locked. I could see someone in there but she acted like she didn’t see me!!!
