How to apply for unemployment benefits in your state: useful contacts

The coronavirus pandemic hit the US economy hard. In this regard, many companies and enterprises had to lay off employees in order to stay afloat, recalls Fox Business.

Layoffs forced millions of Americans to file a record number of applications for unemployment benefits in the penultimate week of March, according to the Department of Labor, 3,28 million US residents did.

The previous record for applications for unemployment benefits was set in 1982, it amounted to only 695.

On March 27, Congress and U.S. President Donald Trump passed a bill of $ 2,2 trillion, including assistance to affected companies, $ 1200 benefits for individuals, money for hospitals, financial assistance for small businesses, and significant expansion of unemployment benefits.

The Coronavirus Aid and Economic Security Act (CARES) will facilitate eligibility for people who have lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic.

AARP, a nonprofit organization, said workers who were fired without pay would also be eligible for benefits.

However, some people who are eligible to apply for unemployment benefits may not know what to do in this situation or who to contact.

Because unemployment benefits vary by state, AARP released a report on March 26 listing all the contact information required to apply for unemployment benefits in all 50 states.

According to a nonprofit organization, most states require people to apply through the state's labor department or unemployment agency in the state where they worked, and not necessarily where they live.

Tip to remember: find out the address of your employer and the date you worked for him, said the AARP.

To find out how to apply for unemployment benefits in your state, check out the websites and use phone numbers for calls in all 50 states, as well as in Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
