    "Establishing Eligibility for Unemployment Compensation Benefits

    How do I establish eligibility?

    There are two types of requirements. The first type of requirement is monetary (weeks and wages). The applicant must meet all of the following:

    - Be unemployed at the time of filing
    - Have at least 20 qualifying weeks of covered employment in the base period
    - Earn an average weekly wage of at least $230.00 (this amount changes each year)"
