How long do you have to work for a company to get unemployment benefits in Georgia?
According to the Handbook in the Related Link below, unless you were released for a disqualifying reason, you had to earn wages of more than 10 times the weekly benefit amount (from your most recent employer) or earned those wages in at least 2 quarters of the first 4 of the last 5 complete calendar quarters of the base period, of your total work history.

No. You have to be available for work and looking for wok.
It takes around 3 weeks. During heavy filing periods maybe 4 weeks but it took me 3 weeks. The unemployment office takes 14 days from the date they mailed the letter to the em…ployer to recieve an answer. Then around an additional week to approve. You should recieve payment, if you are approved, around three days after you are approved.
Effective July 1, 2007, the minimum is $44 per week. The maximum is $330 for claims filed on or after July 1, 2008. The amount an individual will receive is based on the a…mount of wages earned in the base period. 100 % would be the maximum Administering organization: Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) Requirements: Unemployment through no fault of your own. Either looking for another job, have definite recall to their jobs within 6 weeks of the last day worked, or in approved training. You must either have earned enough money in the base period to set up a claim. Base period is the first four of the last five calendar quarters completed at the time you file your claims. Eligibility: 1-You must have earned qualifying wages in at least two of the four quarters in the base period. 2-You must have insured wages totaling at least $1,134 in the two highest quarters of your base period. 3-The total wages in the base period must equal or exceed one-half times the wages in the highest quarter. Who can apply: Out of work and part time workers How long can you claim benefits: 6-26 weeks Weekly benefit amount: $44-$330 (Georgia has uploaded a benefits calculator to their Government website for estimation purposes)
If you complied with the unemployment laws of your state, then reporting the income will offset your benefits by some formula your state uses, up to the amount of your benefit…. What you do not collect is still available to you as long as the benefit year has not expired. If you do NOT report the income, however, can result in pay back of benefits received, penalties, fines and or possible fraud charges that result in misdemeanor or felony penalties.
12 months...you have one year from the initial file date to continue collecting unemployment benefits, provided you have worked long enough prior to your claim to have e…nough money vested to last that long. Hope this helps.
Unemployment is reserved for people who lost their employment through no fault of their own, so yes. However, you do need to qualify for unemployment based on your employment …history. When you apply for benefits they will advise you if you do qualify based on your wages in the base period that they are using.
Up to 53 weeks of for people who have exhausted their 26 weeks of regular Unemployment Benefits. Up to 20 weeks of for people who have exhausted their EUC. Up to 99 weeks …total, a little under 2 years
About 2 weeks from the date you filed unemployment.
There are several reasons why your PIN would be suspended for unemployment benefits in Georgia. The Department of Labor may have deactivated your account because you are n…o longer eligible or you may not have completed requirements such as filling out forms or actively applying for new work.
Under normal circumstances, benefits accrue for a maximum of 26 weeks. Due to the current recession the Federal Government provides emergency unemployment compensation for a m…aximum of an additional 73 weeks for a total of up to 99 weeks. Absent a new law being passed, this emergency benefit program ends on January 3, 2013. If you received more than 26 weeks of unemployment as of January 3, 2013, even if you have received less than 99 weeks total benefits, your benefits completely terminate as the additional benefits above 26 weeks are a federally funded program that ends funding on 1/3/2013. If you received less than 26 weeks by January 3, 2013, as long as you remain eligible you continue to receive benefits after that date until you have received 26 weeks of benefits, at which point your benefits completely terminate.
State unemployment benefits in Illinois last for twenty six weeks. It is possible to apply for an extension in certain circumstances.
In Illinois, you have to work for your employer for 30 days in order for that employer to be chargeable for unemployment benefits in the event you become unemployed. Whether o…r not you are eligible for benefits is up to the Illinois Department of Employment Security to determine. The question is whether you earned at least $1600 in the "base period" (the first 4 of the last 5 completed calendar quarters). You also had to earn at least $440 outside the quarter with the highest earnings. See the Related Link below for more information.
In State Laws
The average state benefit is for 26 weeks (payable within a 52 week period). Federal extensions increase the time received, but it depends on the state and the unemployment ra…te of the state compared to the national average. 26 weeks per claim. One claim per year. If you ever had your weekly dollar amount reduced for any reason, you may collect longer than 26 weeks to make up the difference. See this Related Link for details for Connecticut, for example
Looks like right now you can get 26 weeks of unemployment assuming you have enough benefits to collect the full 26 weeks. And if you are eligible you can qualify for an additi…onal 33 weeks of emergency unemployment benefits.
According to page 24 in the Related Link below, the draw is from 6 weeks minimum, to 26 weeks maximum (unless extended).
In Ohio are you allowed to withdraw after tax distribution from a 401K after you have started drawing unemployment from the same company you worked for without disrupting your unemployment benefits?
I took money out of my 401K and lost my benefits for a five months. So did any of my group who were laid off who took any money out. We are all from ohio. I am not sure …how the person who answered yes could have gotten around this. We were all senior employees and it was old money. Didn't matter. If you took any of it, it off set our unemployment.
