Jobless workers are given unemployment insurance or benefits with money payments for a certain time or until he or she finds a new job. The unemployment insurance is provided by the unemployment insurance program of the different states. The state determines the amount of benefit, eligibility and duration of benefits for the recipient.

After you lost your job, the first thing you have to do is to file for the benefit. This could take from two to three weeks before a check is given to you. Thus, the sooner you file for unemployment insurance, faster you will get paid. The benefit could be filed online or through the phone. Pertinent details like mailing address with zip code, social security number, employment dates, contact numbers, address and name of past employer are needed.

Normally, claiming unemployment benefits could takes weeks after you filed. In some, states like New York, there is only a week waiting period. The second week claimed is the first week for the payment. When your claim is approved, you can file for your benefit weekly through mail or phone. Again, it is important to file a claim right away after you are laid off so you can get the funds fast.
