The process for filing for unemployment benefits is different in each State.

(1) Differences between states

You should speak with others in your state to find out whether in person, telephone or online filing works best.

We're told that in NC it is more effective to initiate your filing over the phone - as opposed to doing it on the Internet.

(2) Filing Eligibility/Timing

If you were laid off by a company that provides severance, check with your state to find out when you can file. Some states allow you to file immediately, others require that you wait until the severance ends.

(3) Protect Your Credit

Read about it elsewhere in the site - but, don't forget to protect your credit - especially NOW!
