How to apply for unemployment benefits
If you lost your job through no fault of your own, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits. You can apply for benefits online or by phone.
If you are unlikely to return to your previous job or have lost your job due to foreign competition, you may be eligible to collect unemployment benefits while you train for a new career.
Training for dislocated workers is customized to each person and must be in an occupation that is in demand in your community or an area to which you are willing to commute or relocate.
