What is the process to be able to receive Unemployment Benefits in New Hampshire?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance, State of New Hampshire

Filing a claim is a two step process. You must complete both steps to be potentially eligible for payment in New Hampshire: 

Step 1: Initial Claim

This is the first claim you file after becoming unemployed, your first claim in a Benefit Year. It is not a request for compensation, but it serves as a notice to the Department and your employer that you may claim benefits.

You must first start with an initial claim application online. Your claim is effective the Sunday of the calendar week in which it is opened. To be timely to claim the week in which you last worked, you must file your initial claim within three business days of your last day worked. You must file no later than the last day of the first week for which you wish to file for benefits.

Step 2: Continued Claim

You will need to file your weekly claim. This is the actual request for payment of benefits that is made each week. You must file your first continued claim between the first Sunday through Saturday period following the week you open your claim, and every week thereafter that you wish to file for benefits.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Featured in Corona COVID-19 Response, State of New Hampshire

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.
