For the unemployed, they might be interested to find out about unemployment insurance extension and how to file it. Filing for extended unemployment insurance is easy, but you have to be familiar with the guidelines of the program before proceeding. The unemployment benefits extension was made available due to the Worker Assistance Act of 2009, which was signed by President Barack Obama, providing benefit extension up to fourteen weeks.

You have to determine if you qualify for the extension. The most important qualification is that you have thoroughly exhausted your available compensation before you apply. If your present benefits have not yet run out, you will have to wait for them to expire before you file. You should also maintain eligibility for the initial unemployment insurance, which means that you are currently underemployed or unemployed, have filed for the initial unemployment insurance application, report the work done and the income received, available for work, actively searching for new employment and continue filing the weekly benefit claims.

Gather all necessary information to support your claim. Information needed includes full name, social security number, address, full business names, addresses and contact numbers of your employers for the past eighteen months and the exact reason of your separation from your job. As soon as you have gathered all information, you can then proceed to file for unemployment insurance extension.
