Q) I am trying to figure out if I will qualify for unemployment, but this is really confusing to me. I am a landscaper and get laid off for the winter months. I first started work out of college on May 13 2014 and will be working till about the second or third week of December. Will I qualify for unemployment?

Be totally or partially unemployed.

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.
