This post will cover:

  • What You Need to File for Unemployment Benefits
  • What Happens after you File for Unemployment Benefits
  • Unemployment Office Phone Number by State

What You Need to File for Unemployment Benefits

Here’s what you need to file for unemployment benefits in your state:

Note that your state may require additional information.

However, the list below is generally what you will need to apply for benefits.

To file for Unemployment benefits, you need to provide personal information including:

  • Social Security number
  • Birthdate
  • Home address
  • Email address (optional in some states)
  • Phone number

Furthermore, you also need information about your employment history from the last 15 months, including:

  • Names of all employers, plus addresses and phone numbers
  • Reasons for leaving those jobs
  • Work start and end dates
  • Recall date (if you were laid off but have a set date to return to work)

Also, you may need additional information in certain situations:

  • If you are not a U.S. citizen — your Alien Registration number
  • If you have children — their birth dates and Social Security numbers
  • For those who are members of a union — your union name and local number
  • If you were in the military — your DD-214 Member 4 form. If you don’t have it, you can request your DD-214 online.
  • For those who worked for the federal government — your SF8 form (optional)

What Happens after you File for Unemployment Benefits

Here’s what to expect after you have successfully filed your claim for unemployment benefits.

Step 1 – Request weekly benefits

You must request weekly benefits every week that you are unemployed.

This is perhaps the most important weekly task you must perform to keep your benefits, in addition to looking for a new job.

You will make your first weekly benefit request the week after you file your claim for unemployment benefits.

Step 2 – Begin your work search

Next, you must begin searching for work immediately.

You are required to perform 3 work search attempts (varies by state).

Furthermore, you must track your search for new employment by using the Work Search Activity Log tool or process provided by your state.

Step 3 – Your Unemployment Application will be Reviewed

Next, your state’s unemployment agency will review your application and confirm the details of your application with your former employer.

If you provided an email address when you filed your claim, you will receive an email from your state’s agency asking you to verify your email address.

Step 4 – You will Receive Monetary Determination

After your application has been reviewed, your state’s unemployment agency will send you an “Unemployment Insurance Monetary Determination” letter.

This is a letter that tells you how much you’ll potentially receive in unemployment benefits.

The letter will include:

  • The start date of your unemployment claim
  • Your base period
  • The amount of wages reported by each employer
  • Your weekly benefit amount
  • Your total benefit amount

The information in the letter will show whether you have earned enough wages to establish an unemployment claim.

However, if you believe that wages on your “Determination Letter” are incorrect or missing information, contact your state’s unemployment agency for assistance.

You will be asked to provide proof of the correct wages (check stubs, W–2 statements, or other documents) in order to review your claim.

It is important to note that a monetary determination letter does not mean you will receive unemployment benefits.

Additional information may be needed from you and/or your employer to make sure you are eligible.

However, you must continue to file your weekly claim for payment while your claim is being investigated.

Step 5 – Respond to questionnaires from the state Agency

Also, if there are questions about your eligibility for unemployment benefits, you’ll receive a fact-finding questionnaire from your state’s unemployment agency.

They will request additional information from you.

You must respond to this questionnaire by the deadline specified.

Failure to respond may result in disqualification from receiving benefits.

Respond to requests for information about your unemployment claim

Step 6 – You will Receive a Non-Monetary Determination

Next, you will receive a notice that tells you whether you’ve been approved for unemployment benefits.

If your application is denied, you can appeal the decision within 10 days.

Step 7 – Start receiving your benefit payments

If you are approved for unemployment benefits, you will receive your benefit payment according to the payment preference that you selected upon applying for benefits.

Depending on your state, your payment options will include all or two of the following:

If you select Direct Deposit, you will need the following information:

  • Your Bank Routing Number (First 9 digits located at the bottom of your checks), and
  • Bank Account Number (5-17 digits, its exact location and number of digits varies from bank to bank).

However, if you do not make a selection for a payment method, you are likely to receive your benefits on an unemployment debit card.

You are allowed to switch payment methods later, once you start receiving benefits.
