← I am a truck driver needing surgery. Need to take work off. How do I find benefits while I cannot work?
A) You must be willing to work, able to work and looking for work to claim unemployment benefits. You also must be unemployed through no fault of your own and your past earnings must meet certain minimum thresholds. If you are injured and unable to work you should consider filing for temporary disability benefits.
