Unemployment is not the same as a welfare program but as insurance. Every person is entitled to this claim. Today’s global economic crisis left many people unemployed and wandering the streets trying to find another job. However, not everyone is aware that they have unemployment benefits in the form of unemployment claims.

First, you should be aware of the policies and regulations of the unemployment claims in your area or state since procedures could vary from state to state. Make sure to prepare the required documents including valid identification cards, address of your previous employer, name of the company and other documents necessary to process your claim. These should be completed before filing for your claim. You have to apply for an Employment Insurance Claim or EIC and you will receive an access code. Documents should be submitted promptly to avoid delay on your benefits approval. As soon as your claim is approved, you will receive the money into your account within two days.

Be aware that there are a lot of scams out there that take advantage of your claims if you are not aware of it. When trying to get your claim online, make sure that the site is legitimate and licensed by the state you are in. Unemployment claim sites provide a safe and efficient way to file your claim while protecting your employment and personal information as well. In case you fear that your account has been compromised, make sure to contact the department in charge of your claims and call the number stated at the back of your card.
