Our staff work closely with the department of labor to ensure claims are made according to regulations of NY State.
Unemployment Insurance is temporary income:
- For eligible workers
- Who lose their jobs
- Through no fault of their own
To collect benefits, you must be ready, willing, and able to work, and actively looking for work during each week in which you are claiming benefits.
To qualify for Unemployment Insurance benefits, you must have worked and earned enough wages in covered employment. In New York State, employers pay contributions that fund Unemployment Insurance. It is not deducted from your paycheck. The Department of Labor decides if you qualify for benefits.
*On appointment basis we can assist individuals during this process.
