If you lost your job for reasons that are beyond your control, you may be qualified to file for unemployment benefits. The first thing that you have to do is to file in person or you can call your state’s Unemployment Office or fill out a form through online. You will be required to answer questions about your employment history and the circumstances leading to your termination. Your employer will be contacted after you fill out the form.

Before you start the process of unemployment claims, you should determine whether you meet certain requirements. First, you have the paper works, social security number, telephone number, mailing address, driver’s license, veteran or military separation date, maiden name of your mother, address, name, contact number of your previous employer. Furthermore, you also have the beginning and ending dates of unemployment, how much wages that you earned and how much wages you have earned and information of your previous employer for the last two years.

The labor department in the state has determined that you are unemployed without your own fault and you meet the requirement eligibility. When your claim has been approved and processed, it takes two to three weeks before starting to receive checks. You can check out the claim through the internet or in person, depending on where you live, you are required to apply on a weekly or twice a week basis.
