Nevada Unemployment Job Search Requirements

In order to keep receiving Nevada unemployment benefits you have to meet ongoing job search requirements. Unemployment benefits are meant to be a temporary benefit until you find a new job, so these job search requirements are in place to make sure you are actively looking for a new job.

Nevada Job Search Requirements are:
1. You must be actively be looking for a job.
2. YOu must make at least 2 job contacts per week. Job contacts include filling out job applications and sending resumes.
3. You must keep a record of all of your job search activities, including a record of all job contacts.
4. You must not be disabled. If you are disabled there are different programs available to help you and your unemployment counselor or local unemployment office can direct you to those resources. (These resources include Social Security Disability).

You must fulfill these job search requirements every week, and provide a weekly certification to let the unemployment office that you are meeting all of the requirements. Be sure to have your job search record up to date, as you may be called into the unemployment office for a periodic eligibility review.

I'm not sure if I am on my second tier of benefits, I've only had to call to apply twice since Aug,2010. My question is, what type of compensation am I receiving,and what will be next as my time is running out for this benefit period.
