Potential Unemployment Benefits And Eligibility

Unemployment benefits are a means of temporary support should you lose your job through no fault of your own. There are a number of requirements that you must meet to obtain unemployment compensation, including:

  • You lose your job due to no fault of your own.
  • You filed an application for unemployment.
  • Your employer was required or elected to pay into the unemployment fund.
  • You have worked enough to earn sufficient credit weeks.
  • You have registered to work with the Pennsylvania CareerLink.
  • You are currently available and capable of working.
  • You have met the one week waiting period after filing for unemployment.

In some cases, an employer may appeal an employee’s claim for unemployment compensation. This can add an additional challenge when trying to secure unemployment benefits. Some employers want to minimize the number of unemployment claims tied to their company to avoid increased taxation. In other instances, employers believe that the employee is responsible for his or her own termination, and will appeal the unemployment claim based on principle. Regardless of your employer’s motives, we are fully equipped to address these appeals and help advocate for your full unemployment benefits.
