FAQ: What Qualifies You For Unemployment In Nebraska?

To be eligible for unemployment, you must be able and available to perform work on at least four days out of the week. You must also be actively searching for work, which includes making at least two job contacts each week and keeping an online log of your work search activities.

How do I file my unemployment benefit weekly claim in Nebraska?

After you file your new claim, file weekly claims online at neworks.nebraska.gov for every week you are unemployed or your hours are reduced. You must file a weekly claim for any week that you want payment or waiting week credit, even if your new claim is still being processed, your eligibility is being decided, or you have an appeal pending. After your claim has been processed and if you are determined eligible, you will typically receive payment within 2-3 business days of filing your weekly claim.
