The Federal-State Unemployment Insurance Program provides individuals who have lost a job through no fault of their own with monetary assistance until they can secure future employment.
The procedures for signing up for unemployment insurance vary from one state to another.
State laws define eligibility for unemployment insurance.
To file a claim for unemployment, an individual needs to contact the appropriate State Unemployment Insurance office after becoming unemployed.
For those who may have worked in a different state than they live, or those that worked in multiple states, contact the state unemployment insurance agency of the state you now live in.
