Q) I recently retired from my job because I felt I was being treated unfairly and foreced out of the work place. I am looking for another job in the meantime; can I file for unemployment
A) It may be possible that in your situation you may qualify for unemployment benefits. I would encourage you to go to your local unemployment office and apply – 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.
