How do I qualify for unemployment insurance benefits in Georgia?

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.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Featured in Corona COVID-19 Response, State of Georgia

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.
