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

What Our Customers Say!
Several months ago we had a flood in our home due to a defective valve in our guest bathroom. Needless to say we came home to a disaster. We immediately contacted our agent, Linda Welborn. Right on the spot she gave us the name and phone number of a company to call (Disaster One). They came out that evening (around 11:30pm) and worked through the following morning around 6:30am. They did an outstanding job! We were so impressed with their "sense of urgency" and "expertise" we assigned all of our repairs to their company. The insurance adjuster(Erie Insurance) cut no corners when it came to replacing damaged items. They issued repair orders on things we weren't even aware we needed to look for. They too did a great job in getting everything processed quickly. It's great to have such a Professional agent who treats us like we are her only customer. I have been so impressed with her outstanding customer service that I refer many people to your agency because of the great care and attention she gives to her customers. Thank you Linda for your outstanding service! We look forward to working with you in the years to come.
