I was in the hospital for 7 weeks, how do I file for these missing benefits?

Unemployment-QuestionQ) I was in the hospital for 7 weeks and did not file for my unemployment benefits, how do I file for these missing benefits?

A) If you were sick and unable to work you were not qualified for unemployment benefits during your hospitalization; 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.

  1. I’ve been calling for weeks to try to get some help with my PIN number being suspended and my account being locked! Cannot get through on the phone and I have left several messages and still haven’t heard anything! I can’t even get my benefits for this week cause of my account!
