Below you will find information that may help those who recently became unemployed.
Unemployment benefits, eligibility and policies are very complex and differ by state, type of work you did, what state the work was done in, and your employer. Not all separated workers are entitled to unemployment benefits. Not all workers who were fired are ineligible for unemployment benefits.
The resources below can help you with your unemployment questions for the states listed below.
If on-line registration for benefits or submitting claims is possible, we generally recommend these are your best option to reduce lost time. If you must go to an office, we generally find Thursdays and Fridays as days where the office visitors are lowest saving you time. Where electronic payment options exist, we generally recommend these where you are protected from any expenses (such as ATM Machines, ATM Networks, or other fees) to receive your benefits. Payment by check is frequently offered but you may encounter the problem of lost checks and the work and lost time value of your benefits needed to document an actual loss. If you have a checking account, a Direct Deposit can be your best and lowest cost option. Examine all costs, risks and fees prior to making your decision.
How much does the Unemployment Tax cost you?
The answer is zero. Employers, in general, contribute to their State's Unemployment Insurance Fund. In Tennessee, this varies between 0.01% to 10.00% of the first $9,000 of wages paid to each employee in a calendar year. New Employers into the fund automatically pay 2.7%, other than construction, manufacturing and mining for the first four years in business. After that they are moved to an experience-based rate based on the number of payable claims from displaced employees.
