I have been applying + looking for full time employment with no success accept as a substitute RN for AHRC + Bayport-_Bluepoint school district. To no avail I have not been called. The weather has not helped. I have no health insurance + have run out of money to live. I have never collected unemployment But don’t know how to file from NY or NC. Please advise.

A) According to New York Department of Labor Website, If you live in New York State, but all your work in the past 18 months was in another state (NC + a position I held for 12yrs.), file your unemployment Insurance claim with the state where you worked. See details and filing instructions in other states.

  1. I have been unemployed for about 3 weeks now, I’ve never filed for unemployment benefits and would like some assistance.

  2. In most states you can apply online for unemployment. Click on the link ONLINE APPLICATION Then locate your state online application site to apply for you unemployment insurance benefits. IF you are having problems applying online and over the phone, you may need to visit your local unemployment office to complete your application.
