How You Can Collect Unemployment

Mar 7, 2008
Declaring that you are officially unemployed can be a very difficult thing to do and can greatly damage the sense of pride that you previously might have had. Many people might not want to register for unemployment simply because they think that they can survive on their own without the help of anyone else. They soon get backed into a corner however and soon come to realize that it is necessary to obtain funds from other sources that will provide them with the basic needs of life.

Once a person has accepted the fact that they need to register for unemployment, they have to then learn how to actually collect the benefits that will help them out until they can find another job position. The first thing that unemployed people must do is to register with the government in order to receive, what they call, unemployment insurance. This type of insurance pretty much just matches the previous pay checks of the person and pays them periodically until their financial situation improves.

Another important aspect of qualifying for unemployment insurance is that you need to prove that the loss of your job was completely involuntarily and definitely not any fault of your own. You can do this by showing documents of your termination and also by showing copies of your job applications, which proves that you are still putting forth an effort to find a job. Once all of these things have been accepted and proven by the local government, you will then be able to collect unemployment insurance in the form of monetary payments that arrive biweekly, just like a normal pay check.

In most areas of the United States, these types of unemployment payments will only come for a maximum of six month and then end. The government believes that you will more than likely be able to find a job within six months and be able to provide for yourself and your family. If the job market is generally not doing very well and there are quite a few people that are having problems finding a job, then the local governments will extend the payments beyond the six month maximum that was original set.

After you file for unemployment benefits and are accepted by the local government, you will then be able to receive your first pay check within about two weeks. Once you receive your first pay check and if you still need additional money because you were unable to find a job, you will then have to claim the next week's check by either mail or by phone. This same process will take place for as long as you need the money up to the six month maximum.

The government has designed this wonderful unemployment insurance program so that people who have lost their job because of things that have simply gone wrong will have the support they need to get back on their feet. They will be able to have sufficient money until they find another job.
