Knowing the basics of unemployment benefits before you apply will save time and allow you to concentrate on looking for a great new job.
Applying for Unemployment Benefits
1. File a Claim
Let's start by entering your employment information online.
2. Look for Work
3. Certify for Weekly Payment
4. Expect Two Letters
