Applying for unemployment compensation in Wisconsin may seem like a challenging process. However, with the help of our guide to unemployment compensation, getting your benefits becomes stress-free and simple. No matter where you are in the application process, our guide offers resources to help you through your entire unemployment period.


Your Unemployment Guide

If you have not yet applied for unemployment compensation, you can open our guide for an introduction to the program and a clear explanation of guidelines. The Wisconsin Employment Security Department (ESD) has a number of eligibility guidelines that potential beneficiaries must meet. These criteria involve income, work history and the nature of a job loss. Applicants often find these guidelines difficult to understand, but our guide’s clear explanations make it easy for you to determine if you qualify for unemployment compensation.

Those who are ready to apply can consult our guide to get step-by-step instructions for each application method. Applicants will also know exactly what information and documents they need when completing and submitting the application. If your application is initially denied, then our guide can even help you to submit an appeal. Many unemployment compensation petitioners in Wisconsin have had their applications accepted after successfully filing an appeal.

If your application is successful, the ESD will require you to perform work search activities to remain eligible for benefits. Our guide makes it easy for you to track your activities and find a job. The guide includes resources for charting your job search and using the ESD’s free job resources effectively. It also offers additional content to help you locate other financial assistance programs, avoid debt and obtain health insurance during your period of unemployment.
