At the Office of Unemployment Insurance Modernization, we recognize that plain language isn't just helpful -- it's critical to how we communicate about Unemployment Insurance.

We've developed this portfolio of plain language resources for states to use as they continue to improve their UI content. Use whichever resources will benefit your team the most, and if you have questions or feedback, please contact us: we'd love to hear from you.
