addition, you must:
- Have earned enough money to be able to collect unemployment benefits.
- Not have run out of money on an unemployment claim.
- Sign up for unemployment.
- Meet all the requirements of the law for us to pay unemployment benefits, except:
- When we say that you must be available, we mean that you must be available to work for your current employer.
- You do not have to look for work or apply for work with another employer.
- Be able and available to work your normal work hours.
- Be on only one work-share plan at a time.
If you do not work any hours in a week, we would pay regular unemployment benefits for that week (if you meet the requirements of the law). You do not also get the work-share benefits for that week.
NOTE: The first week on any claim is a waiting week. By law, we cannot pay benefits in that week. In order for us to pay any benefits in a week, you must meet all the requirements of the law. We mail a Guide to Unemployment and Getting Paid Benefits to everyone who signs up for unemployment. That guide explains the requirements of the law.
