Sorry to hear you are in that boat!

I work in HR so I have a lot of interaction with unemployment.  It really depends on your state,  in VA it  is a sliding scale based on how much you earned in the previous quaters (about 60%).  In most states you can file online.  Some states there are waiting periods and in most states you can be disqualified for many reasons such as termiated because of absenteeism/ tardiness, gross misconduct, if you quit, i.e.  I know right now in VA people have applied and have been waiting for two months to hear if they have even qualified.  It is not a fun process.  Good Luck!

I was laid off and I was unemplyed last year for 8 months! I am in Florida and I did the online form for unemployment there was a waiting period od 2 weeks once they approved you. I had to have my exact hire date, a lot of my coworkers claims were held up because they did not know their hire date. And here we only get a portion of what you were earning, but it was better than nothing. My benefits ran out and they extended them but the amount goes down everytime they extended. And I was one of the “lucky” chosen ones that had to check in with unemployment every week and go to a couple of classes they had to be able to keep my benefits. Good luck! I thought it was really easy to get the ball rolling for it, I had a hard time finding a job.

Usually it is only a portion of what you earned. Since you were terminated and not laid off there is a chance your company will fight it and this will delay you receiving unemployment and can get tricky. As others have said, each state is different so just search unemployment in your state and you should find their website. Good luck with unemployment and finding a new job – I wish you the best.
