Q) I worked for a company in banquets for over 11 years and had to leave because of tumors on feet. This made it impossible for me to perform my job. Am I entitled to any benefits?
A) You would not qualify for unemployment benefits as the general requirement for unemployment insurance benefits is:
Have received enough wages during the base period to establish a claim.
Be totally or partially unemployed.
Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.
Be physically able to work.
Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work.
Be actively looking for work.
Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.
