Unemployment-QuestionQ) If i am currently pregnant and cannot work am i eligible for unemployment?

A) Pregnancy does not qualify you for unemployment insurance benefits. In order for you to get unemployment insurance benefits you must meet your state unemployment benefit requirements – Please visit your state unemployment office website and view your state unemployment benefit requirements.

General requirement for unemployment insurance benefits:

  • Have received enough wages during the base period to establish a claim.
  • Be totally or partially unemployed.
  • Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.
  • Be physically able to work.
  • Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work.
  • Be actively looking for work.
  • Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
  • Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.
