Q) I have been approved for unemployment but never sent paperwork to tell me what I need to do to receive money.
A) For most unemployment benefit services, beginning on the Sunday after you have been approved for benefits, you must request benefit payments for each week. By doing so, you certify your eligibility for benefits. You can request weekly benefits payments online or by phone.
Conduct Weekly Work Search: Federal regulations require that UI claimants conduct an active work search while receiving UI benefits. As a condition of continued eligibility, DUA requires that you do the following each week:
Engage in a minimum of three work search activities on three different days during each week.
Keep a detailed written log of your work search activities.
Provide your work search information to DUA upon request.
