Q) I have just been released from my job and I’m looking to acquire unemployment benefits
A) To apply for unemployment insurance benefits you should:
Contact your state’s unemployment insurance benefit office as soon as possible after becoming unemployed. In most states you can apply online.
Generally, you should file your claim with the state where you worked. If you worked in a state other than the one where you now live or if you worked in multiple states, the state unemployment insurance agency where you now live can provide information about how to file your claim with other states.
Give complete and correct information in order to make sure your claim is not delayed or rejected.
It generally takes two to three weeks after you file your claim to receive your first benefit check.
