There are a few different ways that unemployment checks can be cashed. States like Massachusetts issue unemployment payments via check, debit card or even electronic deposit into your bank account. The unemployment checks can be cashed at your personal bank or other locations like grocery stores. You will just need some form of valid identification, and they will be obliged to cash the check for you. If you cash the check at a store or check-cashing company, however, than you may actually have to pay a small fee for the convenience of using their service.

So how do you go about cashing a check? The first thing to do is sign of the back of the check to make it legitimate. The next thing you need to do is take the check to a bank or other location that is able to cash the check (like mentioned, at grocery stores, other stores or check-cashing stores). You should then hand the cashier or the teller the check and your ID, to ensure that they are able to process the check for you.

In some stores in Massachusetts, they are legally obliged to cash the check for you.
Unemployment benefits are there to help those who are actually unable to work, and those who currently cannot obtain any kind of work. They are there to allow you to carry on living to a relatively good standard, but in the meantime you will be expected by the government to take steps to find yourself a new job, and try and get your foot on the ladder for a new career.
