  1. To qualify for unemployment you must be totally or partially unemployed, meet monetarily eligibility and have worked the required hours (in a given period of time) required by your state.

    Typical information needed to file Unemployment:

    Your Social Security Number
    The name, mailing address, and phone number of your last employer
    The last day you worked
    If you worked outside of State within the last 18 months, you will also need the names and dates worked for those employers
