What are the eligibility requirements for unemployment benefits in Connecticut?

Asked 8 months ago
To be eligible for unemployment benefits in Connecticut, you must meet certain requirements. Firstly, you should have become unemployed through no fault of your own. This means that you should not have voluntarily quit your job and should not have been terminated for misconduct. Secondly, you must have earned enough wages and worked for a specific duration during your base period, which is generally the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters. Additionally, you must be able to work, available for work, and actively seeking employment. You must also register with the Connecticut Department of Labor’s online job search portal and report any work or earnings each week. Finally, you should be physically present in the state of Connecticut and authorized to work in the United States. Meeting these requirements enables you to claim unemployment benefits in Connecticut.
