Qualifications for Unemployment Benefits
Am I eligible for Unemployment Benefits?
If anyone wants to apply for unemployment insurance benefits, the fist
thing to check is if he/she is qualified for it because unemployment
insurance benefits are not available for workers who were unemployed due
to their own fault. One of the eligibility requirements for unemployment
benefits is that applicants should have worked for a certain amount of
times (usually number of weeks and number of hours each week), in order
for them to be qualified to apply the benefits program. Each state has
its own eligibility requirements, it is always best practice to ensure
what is required before fill out the form.
You will receive unemployment compensation depending on the amount you
have earned while you were working.
If you are unsure of your eligibility, just file a claim and your local
unemployment office should be able to determine your eligibility as well
as compensation amount.
Qualification for Unemployment Benefits
You may be disqualified for collecting unemployment benefits if you are
in any of the following circumstances:
You are fired for misconduct
You quit your job without good cause
Resigned due to illness (check on disability benefits)
Left to get married
Involved in a labor dispute
When you quit your job, will you be able to collect unemployment benefits? It
will depend on the case. Mostly if you walked out voluntarily, then you are
definitely not eligible. But if you have left for good cause, you might be
eligible and able to collect the benefits. Such as good cause is determined by
your state or local unemployment office and you can make a case for why you are
eligible for unemployment benefits.
When if you are not qualified?
After you filed a claim and if it is denied, then you are entitled to
hearing session through which you can plead your case with your own
reason with supporting documents.
