Unemployment-QuestionQ) I am 54 years old and have never filed for unemployment. Due to health reasons I am no longer able to do my job. Can I start the application process for unemployment during my two week notice? I am currently on Short term disability also. Thank you Mary

Be physically able to work.
Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work.

Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.

  1. I have been trying for over a month to get my unemployment claim paid. I cannot claim it online and I’ve been on hold for hours. This is absolutely insane, I was actually just laid off and not just sitting around this past year. I need these benefits and have never even claimed them before. I’ve done everything I can and have not been able to reach anyone.
