The Department of Labor has oversight responsibility for the Unemployment Insurance (UI) programs operated in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. These states/jurisdictions provide unemployment benefits to eligible workers who become unemployed through no fault of their own, and meet certain other eligibility requirements.
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must have worked during a specified period, usually in the past 12 to 18 months, and earned a minimum amount of wages as set by each state. You must also be determined to be unemployed through no fault of your own and meet other state eligibility requirements determined under state law.
To determine your eligibility for UI benefits you should contact the state UI agency in the state where you are located as soon as possible after becoming unemployed. In some states, you can now file a claim by telephone and the Internet.
