Unemployment insurance programs pay you money if you lose your job through no fault of your own. You must meet your state’s eligibility requirements. Each state runs its own program. You may be able to file online, by phone, or in person.

You can get assistance by filing your claim for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits. These benefits are available to you if your have become unemployed through no fault of your own. Keep in mind that benefits are established by Federal law and you have the right to apply for UI benefits if you have lost your job.

If you are running out of your unemployment benefits some states provide extended benefits if there is high state unemployment. Extended benefits can last up to 13 weeks. You can apply for extended benefits only once you’ve run out of regular your benefits. Check with your state – not everyone may qualify.
