According to The U.S. Department of Labor workers who meet certain eligibility requirements and become unemployed for no fault of their own are eligible to receive unemployment benefits through the unemployment insurance programs. Although each state runs its own unemployment insurance program, all states adhere to the same federal regulations.
You must make a claim with the unemployment insurance program in your work location state, where you reported working more than 50% of your time, in order to receive benefits. Claims can be filed in person, over the phone, or online, depending on the state. After becoming unemployed, you should get in touch with the unemployment insurance program in your state to confirm your eligibility as soon as possible.
