|Individuals who have lost their jobs due to Hurricane Katrina currently can receive cash unemployment benefits through the unemployment insurance (UI) program or the disaster unemployment assistance (DUA) program, which is available to workers who do not qualify for regular UI benefits. For individuals from Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi, the levels of assistance provided under either program are far too low.|
