If you lost your job at no fault of your own, then it is important to file your claim right away. You should receive your first payment within 3 weeks if there are no issues on your claim for benefits. You are not paid benefits for the first week you claim after filing for benefits (the first voucher you submit) because this is your waiting period week. At the time of filing you will need information including your complete name and address. Social Security number, your personal identification (if reporting to a WorkOne Center). Your most recent employer's name and address. The dates you worked for your most recent employer. The reason you are unemployed and more. To see if you are eligible to receive these benefits and what additional information is needed when applying, find out how to file your Indiana unemployment claim. As a reminder, unemployment insurance benefits are taxable. You must report any unemployment benefits you receive as part of your gross income on your taxes.
