Before you can successfully file this claim, you need to look in the right place and be sure to use the right information. However, you can file on the internet, through the phone or through any other means that your state government accepts. Things you will need: Computer, internet access, printer, phone book.
Your first step should be to find out which service attends to unemployment claims in your state. This body answers different things in different states; for instance they are called the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission in Oklahoma. If nobody around you knows the name the unemployment service in your states goes by, you can do an internet search on it. For example, if you are in Nevada, you can do a search with the term ‘Nevada unemployment filing’ and you will get the right website. Carry out this search on Google.
Take your time on the website and write down tips you find on the site that would help. For instance, make important notes on the filing information; the days of the month you can file in order to get paid, the requirements needed to file each week. Also find the online unemployment filing form and bookmark it. In most states, you will need to provide evidence that you are job hunting. Therefore, you have to make notes that include a contact phone number and email address which you can call or write to when you need some questions answered.
Fill the online unemployment claim that you bookmarked at the right time each week. You can use the contact phone number you wrote for details if you run into difficulties.
Print out the confirmation page of each form you filed and document them. Properly.
