NYS Unemployment Insurance Fact Sheet

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Message from President, Tony Spina

We have been working with the New York State  Department of Labor on a plan to have members easily sign up for unemployment benefits (U.I.).  They have provided the following link and a fact sheet (below). 

Members should file a claim right away to see if they are eligible for UI benefits now or after 49 days. Right now it looks like there will be a 49 day waiting period but we encourage all members in New York State to apply for the benefits now so the department will not be overwhelmed when and/or if we become eligible for the benefit.

Members should be careful to say that they are not working due to a labor dispute or strike.
