The unemployment benefits provided by your State could give you temporary relief and allow you to pay your bills while you are in search for a new job. When applying for unemployment benefits, you should verify if you qualify. Have all the documents and information that you need when you file for a claim. Basically, you need your social security number, list of your employers and addresses and dates of employment.

You may apply for the benefits through your state’s unemployment insurance office. You can apply in person, by phone or through the internet. You also have to register to the Employment Services Office of your state to get free services to help you with your resumes, job interviews, and access to job listings, career counseling and job training.

When called, you have to appear at the unemployment insurance office of your state for the appointment and be always on time. To continue receiving your benefits, you have to be actively searching for new employment and do not turn down a suitable job offer. The amount of unemployment benefits you can get will be based on a percentage of your earnings over the 52 week period and does not exceed the maximum amount allowed in your state.
