Claiming Unemployment Insurance

Unemployment Insurance (UI) is a program that gives financial support to people who lose their jobs through no fault of their own. Claims should be filed as soon as possible after becoming unemployed.

Before you Apply for Unemployment Insurance Benefits - Form BC-10

Layoff

If you have been impacted by a layoff you should have received a Form BC-10 from your department, which contains important information you’ll need to apply for Unemployment Benefits. If you have not received your Form BC-10, please contact your supervisor or OneSource 732-745 SERV (7378).

Furlough

If you have been impacted by a furlough you will not need a BC-10 form to apply for unemployment insurance benefits.
