My employer cut my hours to 15 hours a week, what do i need to bring?

unemployed_personQ) 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) 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

  1. Apparently the UE office in Asheboro, NC had moved yet they have not updated their new address on this website. Apparently they close at 12pm each Wednesday but I don’t see that info anywhere either. A local police officer tried helping me find the office today and he too did not know it moved or where to. He was kind enough to call someone and get the new address for me. I am unable to find a website for them as well. I am an employer attempting to contact them to discuss employment opportunities.
