Basic eligibility requirements
Earnings during the base period:  The “base period” is 
a one-year period that includes four calendar quarters. 
To establish a claim, an individual must have earned two 
times the annual average weekly wage in Maine in each of 
two different calendar quarters, and a total of six times the 
annual, average, weekly wage in Maine in the whole base 
period. In most cases, the Department of Labor has your 
wage information on file. If it is not on file, the Department 
will take steps to obtain it.
Separation:  If you were laid off from your last job due to a 
lack of work, no additional investigation is required. If you 
separated from your last job for reasons other than lack of 
work, you will be scheduled for a fact-finding interview. A 
determination will then be made regarding your eligibility 
for benefits.
Weekly requirements:  Weekly eligibility requirements 
include being able to work and being available for work, 
making an active search for work (unless your work 
search has been “waived”), not refusing offers of suitable 
work or referral to suitable job opportunities from the 
Aliens:  If you are not a U.S. Citizen, your Social Security 
Number and/or your Alien Permit number will be checked 
with the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration 
and Naturalization Service.
Unemployment benefits are taxable:  Unemployment 
benefits are taxable and have to be reported when you file 
your income tax forms.
Child support:  If you owe child support that you pay to 
the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), up 
to fifty percent (50%) of your unemployment check may be 
withheld and sent to DHHS.
Benefits for partial unemployment:  An employer shall 
issue a properly completed partial unemployment claim 
form to each employee who is customarily employed full-
time and who is given less than full-time hours during a 
week due to lack of work, and who is not separated from 
that employer.
