A system and method for computing unemployment insurance premiums that directly supplements government unemployment benefits. To facilitate risk calculations, the work force is classified by industry, occupation, income level, geographic location and many other factors. The insurance premiums are calculated as part of a larger model of private unemployment insurance for high-income workers. If the worker's income exceeds a certain threshold, the insurance would supplement the replacements the government already provides. Additionally this process includes the methods in which the claimant's eligibility is assessed, and how the program is administered (including the claims process). Claim verification relies on piggybacking on the state's determination of a claimant's eligibility for unemployment compensation payments, and the premium computation process takes into account a state's history with respect to granting and denying such claims. The process can also be extrapolated to a non pure supplemental policy.
