Q) Was working 40 plus hours a week due to boss not needing me to work, due to no meetings or rain what do I need to do to sign up for unemployment?
A) To sign up for unemployment, you will need to file a claim with your state’s unemployment insurance program. You can typically file a claim online, over the phone, or in person at your local unemployment office.
You will need to provide information about your employment history, such as the name and address of your employer, the dates you worked, and the reason for separation. If you were laid off or had your hours reduced through no fault of your own, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits.
After you file your claim, you will need to continue to certify your eligibility for benefits on a regular basis, which typically involves reporting your earnings and job search activities. It’s important to follow all the instructions provided by your state’s unemployment agency to ensure you receive the full benefits you are entitled to.
You can report to your nearest unemployment office and apply.
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
