Worked 16yrs then not working at least 10yrs can I get unemployment insurance

A) If you have not earned income for 10 years it may be challenging to qualify for UI benefits. However, depending on the requirements of your state It may be possible to receive unemployment insurance (UI) benefits if you have not worked for 10 years, as long as you meet the other eligibility requirements. Unemployment insurance is a program that provides financial assistance to workers who are out of work through no fault of their own, and who are able and available to work.

To be eligible for UI benefits, you must have worked for an employer covered by the unemployment insurance program and have earned a minimum amount of wages during a certain period of time, known as the “base period.” The specific requirements for the base period vary by state, but generally, it is the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters before you filed your claim.

In addition to meeting the base period requirements, you must also be out of work through no fault of your own and be able and available to work. This means that you must be actively seeking work and willing to accept suitable employment if it is offered to you.

If you have not worked for at least 10 years, it is possible that you may not have earned enough wages during the base period to be eligible for UI benefits. However, you can still apply for UI and see if you meet the eligibility requirements in your state.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
