Alabama Online Unemployment

In these difficult times, many people have found themselves in difficult situations. If you have recently lost your job, you can file for unemployment online in Alabama. This can save you the time and expense of having to drive to the local state office to file. Unemployment services online are quick and easy. All you will need is a computer, your work history, and your social security number.

Online unemployment filing can be found on the Alabama Department of Industrial Relations website. After you are on the site, look for a tab that says "Unemployment Compensation Claims and Benefits Facts." From there, click on "How to File a Claim" and "Proceed."

To continue with the online unemployment process, gather all the information you will need. You will need your Social Security number or your alien registration number if you are not a United States citizen. You will also need your work history for the past year and a half. This must include the address, telephone number, and dates of employment for each location. If you were in the military during those past 18 months, you will need a copy of your military release paperwork. If you were hired through a union, access the name and number of the local union hall.

When accessing your unemployment service online, you will need to decide if you want your benefits direct deposited into your bank account. If you choose to go with this route, you will need your bank routing number, account number, and a telephone number that you can be reached at during regular business hours.

Before your online unemployment application is complete, you will need to fill out a page with your personal information. This is a simple form that includes your name, address, phone number, date of birth, and other normal questions. After this page has been submitted, you will be directed to a final page that confirms the submission. Unless you see this page, the claim is not finished and will not be processed.

The final step takes place after the online unemployment compensation has been approved. Return to the home page of the website. You will be asked if you would like to file. After you click "yes," the filing is complete.

Unemployment services online can reduce some of the stress that accompanies being unemployed. While it will not eliminate it completely, it is a safety net that will keep you and your family afloat during troubled times.
