Other requirements to qualify for UI benefits include being able to work, actively seeking a new job, registered for local work programs through IowaWorks, and have earned a minimum wage amount in the last 18 months.
Before applying online, have your SSN, full name, address of payroll information, vacation or severance pay, and phone number ready. Self employment for dependent purposes does not count as gross wages.
UI benefits are covered extensively in the handbook, speaking a customer service operator, or by talking with a representative in the closest IowaWorks office.
