Understanding weekly eligibility requirements



What do I need to do each week?

To be eligible for benefits for any week, you must be:

  • Able and willing to immediately accept work in your usual occupation or other suitable employment.
  • Willing to seek and accept the hours, wage, commuting distance, and other conditions of employment that are normal for someone in your occupation with your skills and experience.

You are not eligible for weeks you:

You must actively look for work even if you have a part-time job or expect to return to a seasonal job. You must make a serious effort to find work every week you make a request for benefit payment.
