Finding the Better Fit: Receiving Unemployment Insurance Increases Likelihood of Re-employment with Health Insurance


  • Heather Boushey
  • Jeff Wenger


This report is the first to examine whether workers who receive unemployment insurance (UI) increase their likelihood of employer-sponsored health insurance in their new job. The findings prove that in general, receiving UI benefits increases the likelihood of being hired into a job that provides employer-sponsored health insurance.
