North Carolina Unemployment Application

When you get ready to fill out the NC unemployment application you need to make sure you have set aside plenty of time to complete the application, and you need to be sure that you have all of the information ready that may be requested of you.

You need to know:

1. Your social security number.
2. Your driver's license number.
3. Your last employer's name and address.
4. The dates that you worked at your last employer.
5. The dates of all of the jobs that you have held in the past (This is not always required, but is very helpful to have).

If you are filling out a North Carolina unemployment application in person, you will need to take the following items with you:

1. Your social security card.
2. Your driver's license.
3. Last paystub from your previous employer.
4. Any layoff documents your previous employer may have given you.

I have a small business on my name and I work full time job for a different company. Now I will be lay-off from the company where I work full time. Can I collect unemployment if I have the business on my name? Thank you!

I have a personal business where I work about 12 hours per week. I am being laid off from my full time job. I can pick up a few more hours in my business. How will this affect an unemployment claim?

I work from home in NC for a company in VA. I have never stepped foot in VA to perform my duties. VA will not file my claim directing me to NC. NC tells me I must file in VA. All other laid off employees in other states...their unemployment offices are simply transferring wages to their prospective states without the VA Company having a EIN # in their state. NC tells me I must contact my employer, have them get a NC EIN and have my wages transferred. At a total loss here as neither state is helping me. Advise Please!
