About Unemployment Offices

How are unemployment benefits funded?

The funding for unemployment benefits comes from a combination of federal and state unemployment insurance taxes. The taxes are paid by employers, and they are based on the amount of wages paid to employees. Some government employers and non-profit organizations are exempt from unemployment insurance taxes.

What is the process for applying for unemployment benefits?

Applicants should file for benefits as soon as possible after becoming unemployed. Most states allow applicants to file claims both in person or using an online application, though a follow-up interview is almost always required. Applicants should be prepared to provide basic contact and identity verification documentation, as well as earnings history and an explanation of how they became unemployed.

Can people receive unemployment compensation if their work hours are reduced by their employer?

If an applicant's work hours are reduced to less than full-time through no fault of their own, they may be eligible for unemployment compensation. In these cases, the applicant may only be eligible for a partial benefit.
