Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Georgia

There are several qualification requirements for UI claims in Georgia, but these three are critical:

  • You must have earned enough money in the base period to set up a claim.
  • You must be unemployed through no fault of your own.
  • You must be able to work, be available for work, and be actively seeking work each week you claim benefits.

How long must I have worked to establish a claim in Georgia?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of Georgia

Your claim is based on insured wages earned in the base period, which is the first four of the last five calendar quarters completed at the time you file your claim. You must have earned qualifying wages in at least two of the four quarters in the base period. The total wages in the base period must equal or exceed one and one-half times the wages in the highest quarter. A secondary calculation will be made when the sole reason that a claim cannot be established is the one and one-half times requirement. An alternative base period consisting of the most recently completed four calendar quarters will be used only when a claim cannot be established using the regular base period.
