When do I sign up for unemployment… on my last day of work June 29, 2018 or do I sign up before my last day?

Q) When do I sign up for unemployment… on my last day of work June 29, 2018 or do I sign up before my last day? Please advise.

A) Most states require that you apply for benefits immediately after you lose your job, as your eligibility begins the week in which you file your claim. Claims start on the Sunday of the week an Unemployment Insurance application is submitted; so begin sooner rather than later. Generally, if you delay in applying for UI benefits, you will not be allowed to receive benefits for the time prior to your application, even if you would have been eligible for benefits during that time.
