State-By-State Unemployment Guides
Unemployment Insurance is short-term, financial assistance that each state provides to workers that become totally or partially unemployed through no fault of their own.
Each state has an organization that administers its program. The eligibility requirements and benefits vary from state to state.
Where do you work?
You typically file for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits in the state where you perform your work. In some cases, that can differ from the location of your employer. For example, if you work remotely from your home state and your employer’s physical office is a different state, you will generally file for UI in the state where you performed the work (your home state).
