Unemployment Compensation Overview

Do you need assistance delivering unemployment benefits on time?

The Injury Compensation and Unemployment Compensation Branch is your source for information about civilian unemployment compensation (UC) within the Department of Defense (DOD).

Because we serve as a liaison between DOD and State Employment Security Agencies (SESAs), let ICUC assist with training and technical assistance on claims administration and auditing support. Our services can help improve the process of UC management—so that you can deliver benefits on time and save money.


We have helped DOD achieve tangible cost savings of over $11.8 million in credits for erroneous UC charges. These charges come directly back to each Component.
