I’m fixing to have to pay my rent, thank God I saved two months income now I’m down to the last bit of money, I am almost 72 years old any other aids I can look into?
A) I’m sorry to hear about your situation. According to the Alabama Department of Labor, unemployment benefits are paid in weekly payments and are not based on financial need. The weekly benefits amount in the state of Alabama ranges from $45 to a maximum of $265, which is calculated using your base period amount. To be eligible for this benefit program, you must be a resident of Alabama and meet all of the following: unemployed through no fault of your own, able and available to work, and actively seeking work.
To check the status of your claim, you can use the online services provided by the Alabama Department of Labor. You will need your Social Security Number and your Personal Identification Number (PIN) to access your information.
You may also be eligible for other benefits such as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), which provides up to 79 weeks of benefits to individuals who are self-employed, gig workers, or otherwise not eligible for regular unemployment insurance. To apply for PUA, you can visit this website: https://pua.labor.alabama.gov/.
I hope this information helps you. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
