Since DACA recipients have work authorization and are working legally, they are eligible to apply for unemployment benefits if they lose their jobs through no fault of their own, if they have worked a sufficient amount of time. It’s best to apply as soon as possible because payments won’t begin until after applications are filed. There is a big backlog already, so the sooner they apply the better.
