So your vote is "forever?"

Every life has ups and downs. That's why you financially prepare for the hard times when the times are good. You save. You invest. You don't over-extend yourself.

In it's current form of funding, the unemployment insurance system cannot support people indefinitely, and the government was never intended to be a charity.

If you're fifty-six and have lost your job you can start drawing from your IRAs without penalty. You can also take uniform, regular distributions from your 401k based on current life expectancy.

If you have neither, than all I can do is wish you luck until you are eligible for Social Security.
