Unemployment Insurance provides temporary cash assistance to qualified unemployed workers who are looking for a job. Benefits are based on past earnings, not on current income. You may receive unemployment benefits if:
- You are unemployed through no fault of your own.
- You have earned enough wages to qualify for benefits: and
- You are available and actively looking for full-time work.
Eligibility depends upon your earnings during a "base Period" which is one year period ending shortly before the date you file your claim.
