Unemployment insurance is made available to unemployed workers who lost their job without their fault. There are several requirements in order to qualify for the insurance, like working for a number of weeks for a certain number of hours weekly. The requirements differ in every state the amount you receive depends on how much you earned while still working.

If you are not sure if you qualify or not, you can file your claim and the state’s unemployment office determines your eligibility. There are several things that may disqualify you from collecting unemployment benefits, like quitting your job voluntarily, resigned because of illness, misconduct, left to get married, self-employment, going to school or labor disputes.

Many people would like to know if they could still claim unemployment insurance if they quit their work. There are some cases where one may collect unemployment benefits if the reason for quitting is for a good cause. A good cause will be determined by the state’s unemployment office and you can have to prove that you are qualified to get compensation. If you give your notice but your employers refuses to accept it and terminates you immediately, normally it is considered involuntary termination and you can qualify to receive unemployment insurance.
