My son lives in PA, he is 17 and works a man's job. Will he be eligible for unemployment compensation?

Just wondering if they lay him off if he will be able to collect unemployment?



Hi Vicki,

I have never seen anything that says anyone of legal age to work would be exempt from receiving unemployment benefits.

I know their are exceptions when certain family members work for family .. which of course could include the children of a business owner, but other than that I would say the only thing that matters is that he has qualifying wages.

Thanks for the question Vicki.

Chris
