New Requirement to Receive Unemployment Insurance Benefits Beginning October 2013
Due to a recent change in Indiana law, Hoosiers receiving unemployment insurance benefits must visit their local WorkOne for a review of their work search records and an orientation to WorkOne services after their 4th week of benefits. You are also required by law to keep records of your 3 weekly work searches and be able to show a record of work searches when requested. If a record of work searches cannot be readily verified at the in-person visit, weekly benefits could be withheld. This in-person visit is part of a new law passed aimed at getting unemployed Hoosiers back to work as quickly as possible. Hoosiers who are required to visit a WorkOne will begin receiving notices in October. Anyone who fails to comply risks losing their unemployment insurance benefits. Click here for more information.
