What important things should I remember when I file for unemployment?
File for unemployment benefits as soon as you become unemployed, but you cannot file before your final workday is completed. Your claim is effective the week you file, not the week you become unemployed.
Do not wait to file. If you wait, you will not receive waiting period credit or payment for those weeks.
