Single Mothers Unlikely to Receive Unemployment Benefits

In fall 2008, 13.7 percent of single mothers (one in seven) who were laid off or looking for work received unemployment insurance, but 50.1 percent received food stamps.-- US Census

Single mothers may be disqualified from unemployment benefits because they don't have enough earnings to qualify, because they are unavailable for full-time work, or because they are determined to have quit voluntarily.
