If so, you may be eligible to receive state unemployment compensation from your unemployment office. The purpose of unemployment insurance is to provide workers, who are unemployed through no fault of their own, with monetary payments for a specific period of time (usually 6 months) or until you find a new job. 

To be eligible for benefits, you must meet your state's requirements for wages earned and for a certain period of time. This is referred to as your base period. In other words, you must have been substantially employed, as required by your states laws. But even if you didn't work for consecutive weeks, for the same employer, or in the same state, you may still be eligible to collect benefits from your unemployment office. The state will determine your wages earned and asses what your weekly benefit amount will be. The amount you'll receive varies widely by state.

In this site we have provided the necessary information that you will need to file your claim, and get through this tough time.

To be eligible for the program you must be eligible for unemployment compensation, have been permanently laid off and identified through the profiling system as likely to exhaust benefits, and must participate in self- employment activities including entrepreneurial training and business counseling. Check with your unemployment office for more details.
