If you are employed with In Home Supportive Services a California State ran program and you are the caregiver for your spouse or child you are not eligible to receive any unemployment benefits.  All other employees are entitled to 26 weeks or less.  I recently lost my son after he battled with a terminal heart condition for over 9 1/2 years and was denied UI benefits. I have paid both federal and state taxes while employed with IHSS.  Please help me change this law so that no other person has to be doubly devastated by losing your loved one and your livelihood.  Here is the link to the IHSS handout:  http://www.cdss.ca.gov/cdssweb/entres/forms/english/pub104.pdf
