Texas Workforce Commission

Understanding unemployment benefits and who is eligible during COVID-19 can be confusing. We want to help you navigate it.
We’ve compiled common scenarios Texans may experience. For example:

Are you eligible for Unemployment benefits if you are in self-quarantine (But Not Mandated)?
- If you do NOT have COVID-19, you may not be eligible for unemployment benefits, even if you do not have enough paid sick, vacation, or other leave to cover your time off
- If you DO have COVID-19, you may be eligible
If you self-quarantine without your employer’s permission and lose your job, you may not be eligible.
