This poster must be posted in a conspicuous place where all employees will see it. It describes who qualifies for unemployment benefits as well as how and where to file a claim. It also lists what payment options are available and an area employers must fill out with their contact information.

Keep This Form
Please ensure that you read both sides of this form prior to filing a claim for unemployment benefits.  If 
you become unemployed, this information may help to determine your unemployment benefit entitlement.   
When to file a claim for unemployment benefits
A claim for unemployment benefits begins the week it is filed.  Therefore, you should file your claim for benefits during your first 
week of unemployment.
To receive unemployment benefits, you must both be eligible and qualified. You must:
• File a claim, and report for benefits as directed by the Unemployment Insurance  Agency (UIA). 
• Register for work each time a new, additional or re-opened claim is filed as directed by the UIA. 
• Have sufficient earnings in the past 18 months. 
• Be able to work. 
• Be available for work. You must immediately inform the UIA and all base period employers of any changes to your contact 
information (mailing address and telephone number) and respond to all UIA requests to update your contact information.
• If  directed  by  the  UIA,  appear  at  a  specified  location  provided  in  a  mailed  notice  for  an  evaluation  of  your  eligibility  for 
unemployment benefits. 
• If  requested  by  the  UIA,  provide  a  statement  of  wages  (wage  affidavit)  for  purposes  of  calculating  your  unemployment 
benefits as state law requires that you produce evidence of those wages (pay stubs, W -2, employer payroll records, etc.). 
• Be actively engaged in seeking work. 
• Conduct a systematic and sustained work search effort and provide proof of those efforts by submitting your work search 
efforts as directed by the UIA. 
To file a claim for benefits, you will need the following:
1. This form and any similar forms you received from any employer in the past 18 months, or pay stubs with employer 
name, employer payroll record, or W-2 Form.
2. Your Social Security number, complete mailing address (zip code), telephone number, and county of residence.
3. Your driver’s license or state identification card.
4. Your Alien Registration Number and the expiration date of your work authorization if you are not a citizen or national of 
the United States.
5. Name(s) of employer(s), date(s) of employment, and reason for separation from each employer you worked for in the 
past 18 months.
6. Information from your financial institution if you choose to have your benefits directly deposited into your checking or 
savings account.
