Unemployment Insurance or UI gives workers who lost their jobs without their fault with weekly temporary funds. The unemployment insurance if funded by employers paying taxes on the salaries they paid to employees. To benefit from unemployment insurance, there are some requirements including previous wages, last job separation and availability to look for a new job. These are necessary to qualify for the unemployment benefits.

You should present documentation of previously earned wages. Moreover, there should be a valid reason why you lost your job. In case you quit your job voluntarily, make certain to provide valid proof like a safety hazard workplace, employer abuse or non-payment of salary. You should be actively seeking for a new job to receive unemployment benefits. Every week of your benefits, you have to be looking for a full-time job, able to work physically and accept any suitable job.

Even though your unemployment claim is kept confidential, some information has to be shared with some government agencies that are allowed by law. These agencies will use the information for several programs including child and medical support and food stamps. Moreover, if you will receive the money through a debit card, information is shared with the bank who manages the debit card account.
