Alaska Unemployment Claim
State of Alaska Unemployment Benefits
Alaska unemployment claim applicants will be asked a series of different questions pertaining to their employment status, such as:
- Did you quit your job or were you laid off?
- Have you refused work that was offered to you after losing your previous employment?
- Are you physically able to work full-time?
- Were you self-employed?
Filing a claim will also require all applicants to state all hours and wages earned while they were employed, in addition to any Worker's Compensation payments earned, bonuses, profit sharing, or commissions in salary obtained during employment.
All filing applicants are required to include whether or not they have applied for retirement compensation in the online application (in which case benefits would be reduced, depending on each claimant).
