What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Featured in Corona COVID-19 Response, State of Delaware

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.

Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.

People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

Featured in Apply for Medicaid Online, State of Delaware

 

A. Citizenship and Residency - To obtain full Medicaid benefits in Delaware, you must be a Delaware resident and either a U.S. citizen or a legally residing noncitizen. Full coverage for noncitizens is dependent on the availability of state funding. However, noncitizens (residing legally or illegally) can qualify for coverage for emergencies and labor & delivery services if income requirements are met.

Income Level - Qualifying for Medicaid is also based on need. Household income must be under certain limits that depend on family size. For Long Term Care programs, financial resources must also be under a certain amount. There are also specific programs for individuals who meet certain medical or disability tests, or who qualify due to age or pregnancy.

How do I know if I'm eligible to receive Unemployment Insurance in the State of Delaware?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Delaware

There are certain wage requirements based on the amount of money that you were paid while you were employed. The amount of money you were paid during your base period (the first four of last five completed calendar quarters) determines your "weekly benefit amount (WBA)". In addition, you must be unemployed through no fault of your own, able to work, available for work, looking for work and willing to accept a job for which you are qualified.

How often do I file claims and when must I file claims in Delaware?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Delaware

You must file a Weekly Pay Authorization or call "TeleBenefits" every week. Be sure to keep your records for unemployment insurance eligibility requirements on a weekly basis since the Weekly Pay Authorization or "TeleBenefits" will require you to answer specific questions about each compensable week that you claim benefits. A "compensable week" for unemployment benefits runs from Sunday through Saturday. It is your responsibility to return your Weekly Pay Authorization or to call "TeleBenefits" each week. Failure to return your Weekly Pay Authorization or to call "TeleBenefits" timely will cause a delay in benefits and may result in denial of benefits.

If you have selected to claim benefits by using the Weekly Pay Authorization option and do not get a new Weekly Pay Authorization covering the weekly claim period (compensable week) in the mail within one week of the Sunday date you mailed your last Weekly Pay Authorization, it is your responsibility to report to or call your local unemployment insurance office on the next working day in order for your Weekly Pay Authorization to be received on time. Backdated claims may not be accepted.

Here's an example:
You have a Weekly Pay Authorization that covers the week ending June 19, 2010. This Weekly Pay Authorization should be completed by you on Sunday, June 20, 2010. You should get a new Weekly Pay Authorization in the mail that covers the week ending June 26, 2010 with your check for June 19, 2010 by Saturday, June 26, 2010.

If you don't get the new Weekly Pay Authorization on or before that day, you should call the UI information hotline (761-6576 in New Castle County and 1-800-794-3032 in Kent and Sussex counties)

How is my Weekly Benefit Amount (WBA) determined?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Delaware

The weekly benefit amount (WBA) is based on the amount that you were paid during the base period. The base period is the first four of the last five calendar quarters completed as of the Sunday before you file your first claim for benefits.

Your weekly benefit amount will be 1/46th of your two highest calendar quarters in the base period. If you worked full-time during the four quarters, your WBA will be a little more than half your gross weekly wage up to the maximum weekly benefit amount in effect at the time.
