Spanish term or phrase: Subsidio de de desempleo
I would like what will be the best way to translate this phrase from Colombian Spanish into American English.

It will be okay to say "unemployment subsidy or Unemployment benefits".

Job-seeker's allowance

Not probably used in the US - but this is a much more inspiring name than dreary 'unemployment benefits'

This is the official term from the UK.
