Do NOT apply for your Unemployment Insurance benefits too early.

Make sure your official last day or separation date is today or later before you apply for unemployment insurance benefits. Many larger companies may not officially terminate your employment for 2 weeks or more. If you were not given a written separation date and agreement or are unsure of the separation date, contact your company human resources department to clarify the exact last date of employment.

Apply for Unemployment Insurance benefits on the Internet

Now you can file your Unemployment Insurance claim via the Internet. Fast, easy, and no lines. many states have improved and expanded the internet filing for just about every type of Unemployment Insurance claims.

Make sure you have at least 30-45 minutes of dedicated time to fill out the online application. You will need your social security number and employment information.

There are a couple of rather tricky screens and a couple of questions that may seem odd, but make sure you enter all the information needed until you see a completed screen. When the online application is completed, you will be given a confirmation number and effective date of unemployment. Make sure you print this information or save to your disk drive.

Confirm and Continue Unemployment Insurance benefits

You should receive a letter from the Department that handles your state Unemployment Insurance claims within 10 -14 days to confirm your Internet Unemployment Insurance claim worked. If you do NOT receive a confirmation letter, you MUST go to an office in person to request help with your Unemployment Insurance claim.
