Friends, whatever you might think..but there is no denying that fact that there had been some serious changes across the labor market. Such changes came in the form of segregation of jobs, involvement of women at work as well as the increase in the number of dual-income groups.



It was surely a challenge for such dual-income groups to make their professional and domestic ends meet. It was here that the unemployment insurance had failed miserably. As it failed to keep up with the upcoming changes, it became more and more difficult for it to satisfy the needs of both the dual-income groups as well as the low-income groups. Roddick

Actually, it seriously demands statewise reforms from the part of the govt.





  • Criteria for availing these benefits should be set upon the latest earnings of a worker

  • The eligibility criteria should be flexible for part-time workers.

  • The eligibility criteria should be set upon the working hours and not only on the wages earned.

  • There has to be more contributions form the state to keep the workers satisfied and healthy.
Hope you all got my point at that!

Hi all, it is quite true that we should know all about the eligibility criteria of UI benefits, worth of such benefits, suggestions regarding any upgrade of UI program benefits. In order to avail the benefits, you'd need to file a claim with your state UI program. The State financial eligibility criteria has to be met inititally which is to be followed by the non-monetary criteria. This is meant to ensure that the worker had been an employee for a considerable period of time as well as to ensure that he is no more with his prior employer due to some permitted facts.

Hey..in order to avail such benefits the applicants would need to prove that it is not due to any of their own faults that they are unemployed for the time. At the same time, they would also need to ensure that they would satisfy certain facts-



* These benefits are aimed to provide temporary financial assistance to workers who would satisfy the state compliance guidelines.



* Each state conducts a specified unemployment insurance following the guidelines laid by the federal govt.

If you're talking about the eligibility criteria for UI insurance benefits then I believe there are a few more conditions to be satisfied-





  • The worth of the UI benefits as well as the extent of time for which such benefits would be offered to you would be decided by the state laws that govern such claims.

  • Across almost all states the fund is created out of the tax revenues collected out of the employers.

  • The state rules in connection with the wages earned or the time-length for which the applicant would need to work have to be fulfilled.

So you see how the state wants to be absolutely sure that such benefits are not falling on to the wrong hands in the end.

Hi, I don't know why you all forgot about mentioning the claim-filing process under the UI insurance. See, it is very much necessary for you to inform the state UI agency of a probable unemployment scenario. It has become really easy to convey such information online or through the phone.

I'm sure you'd be more than 'satisfied' to receive your first settlement check within a couple of weeks..am I right!

Hi yeah..but then there are certain states who'd need a week-long waiting period!

You may invite a number of queries while filing your claim. They would demand a detailed account of the address and the period of your earlier employment. I'd suggest you to give every particular information that they want in order to speed up the claim process. Plasticmind

Hi,

I think you'd need to register with the state employment service as soon as you'd claim the UI benefits. This would certainly help you towards obtaining another employment opportunity. Under circumstances wherein you'd not need to register, you may still avail the employment service to locate your desired opportunity. Hope this thing helps your search! BarbieL

I always find this string of posts interesting because it's always the exact same people who reply one after the other in rapid succession.



It makes me wonder if they're not all one and the same person?

From the first post at 9:56 to the last post at 10:48 is 52 minutes for 10 posts.



Is it just me?

I find this odd?



Federal and State unemployment TAX is paid for by your employER.



EmployEES don't pay this.



I believe "W" just signed into law unemployment benefits to be extended to 45 weeks.

Now you don't have to get serious about finding a new job for 43 weeks.

If you pay people NOT to work they won't work.



I'm just saying.

You're not right if the OP is denied benefits..Bridge...what is the reason you are now unemployed...alot of factors come into this...why do you no longer have a job? how long, or actually how much did you make at this or your prior job..and states differ as well .... just call the unemployment office in your area and find out how to apply...if as example you quit your job...no unemployment for you...



Gary, hmmmmmmmm good point but some of these have been around awhile. rod, fatman, and arind...but the others? who knows....it was pretty much re-verb huh?

Okay so I work at the unemployment claims office and this is what I can tell you.

First of all if you have been fired or you quit your job do not count on getting unemployment ins. at all. Make sure you have you record of employments and all the proper documentation.

Also - make sure that you keep a record of your job search because they more than likely dont want a free paycheck going out to you. You ahve to be ready adn willing to work. The reason they have this insurance is for a temporary fix. To help you have an income while you are looking for other work, so - you could be audited so always keep arecord of your job search history adn they name and contact information of the person you were speaking with. As well - do not ever turn down a job while on unemployment. If they find out you declined work you could loose your claim and be forced to pay back money(s) that you had recieved as well as you could be charged if it gets to that point. Main thign always be honest adn truthful about everything when filing any kind of claim Cool

@ Lori: Hmmmmmm, well, maybe, maybe not.

Reads to me like one (1) or two (2) persons playing good poster/bad poster.



Some of the replies are convoluted absurdities!

What the hockey puck are you talking about?



The reason to apply for unemployment insurance

Got laid off or fired.



The eligibility criteria for unemployment insurance

Your EMPLOYER pays Federal and State unemployment taxes and you got laid off or fired.



The views of the unemployment insurance carrier

And just EXACTLY who is this "unemployment insurance carrier?"



THEN THERE'S THIS:

What on Earth are you talking about?



Followed by:

Quote:

How does increased contributions from the state keep, "workers satisfied and healthy?" Especially the healthy part? Will the new $800,000,000,000 billion bailout keep anyone healthy?



Evil or Very MadTwisted Evil After reading these posts I'm now going to sandpaper my eyeballs! Shocked
