Questions about Unemployment Benefits
With the December 2020 federal law extending the amount and length of Unemployment Insurance benefit eligibility, many out-of-work Americans have questions about how to qualify and how, when, and where to file for benefits.
CareerOneStop summarizes the federal unemployment benefit enhancements and provides answer to the most common questions at FAQs about unemployment. Visitors can get their questions answered, find links to their state’s UI websites, and access further information on how their state implements the Unemployment Insurance program. They can find more employment and training resources, including how to access free virtual job search assistance at an American Job Center, at EmploymentRecovery.org.
