Q) My employer is cutting hours, i went from seen 40 plus hours of work a week to now getting 15 hours, am i qualified for unemployment? If so what do i need to bring in.
A) If your employer has reduced your hours, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits. To determine your eligibility, you will need to contact your state’s unemployment office or visit their website to file a claim.
When you file your claim, you will need to provide information about your employment history and the reason for your separation from your previous job. You may also need to provide documentation to support your claim, such as pay stubs or other proof of income.
Once your claim is approved, you will need to continue to certify for benefits on a regular basis, usually every week or two. You will need to report any income you earn during this time, including your reduced hours and income, and your benefits will be adjusted accordingly.
It’s important to note that eligibility requirements for unemployment benefits vary by state, so you should check with your state’s unemployment office for specific information on what documents or information you will need to provide to file a claim.
To qualify for unemployment you must be totally or partially unemployed, meet monetarily eligibility and have worked the required hours (in a given period of time) required by your state.
Typical information needed to file Unemployment:
Your Social Security Number
The name, mailing address, and phone number of your last employer
The last day you worked
If you worked outside of State within the last 18 months, you will also need the names and dates worked for those employers
