If you’re in a bad position financially, it might be worth considering getting unemployment insurance to help your family.
Here are the steps to take.
Step 1: Find an insurance provider with an established network of local businesses.
This will give you a base to start from.
You may need to go to your local city council and ask for a vote on the issue.
You can find out about local laws in your local area by visiting the U.S. Department of Labor website.
Step 2: Call the office of your local county or city government and ask them to open an office for your family and help them locate a qualified provider.
You should contact the local business or local government before calling to verify if they are a qualified entity.
You must contact the business before claiming unemployment insurance coverage.
If you do not know the location of the business, check with your local government.
Step 3: You should get a letter of intent to apply for unemployment insurance.
This should be signed by the employer.
The letter of intention must be dated and signed by both the employer and the employee, or the employee can not claim unemployment.
