Do I have to do work search, and how do I answer the work search question?

The work search question is required under Kansas law, but was temporarily waived at the height of the pandemic. Claimants that wish to continue to receive unemployment benefits will once again be required to perform work search activities each week.

When you file your weekly claim, you will need to answer the question asking whether you have searched for work during the week being claimed.
