Learn about unemployment compensation and/or File a Claim. Unemployment Insurance is a social insurance program designed to provide benefits to most individuals out of work, generally through no fault of their own, for periods between jobs. In order to be eligible for benefits, jobless workers must demonstrate that they have worked, usually measured by amount of wages and/or weeks of work, and must be able and available for work. The unemployment compensation program is based upon federal law, but administered by states under state law.

Additionally, the Division of Employment & Training of the Department of Labor maintains an Unemployment Hotline. By utilizing this hotline, a person can obtain information on the location of Unemployment Insurance Offices and how to file claims. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
