How To File For Unemployment In Your State

Posted by supervisor

Unemployment insurance is a federal/state compensation program that came into being in 1935 via the Social Security Act. This program has been called many names but they are all one and the same. You might hear it called unemployment compensation, unemployment benefits, workers compensation, unemployment insurance, or just plain “unemployment”.

The intended purpose of unemployment insurance

Unemployment insurance is a benefit offered to unemployed workers who have lost their job through no fault of their own. It’s purpose is to temporarily assist unemployed workers financially with the essentials of life so that they will have help covering their basic necessities like shelter and food while they are between jobs.

The unemployment benefits program is a Federal program that is carried out by each State. This means that each state may have a different process and rules for applying to, appealing, and receiving unemployment insurance benefits.

Just because you may know someone who qualified for unemployment in another state does not mean that you will qualify for the same benefit if you file for unemployment where you live. Each case must follow the regulations for the state in which in the claim was filed and every case is looked at individually.

    People who have lost their job need to remember that unemployment insurance is just that. It is an insurance policy that you have been paying for the entire time you were employed. So you are entitled to it. Dont be embarrassed or afraid to file.
