If you lost your job at no fault of your own, then it is important to file your claim right away. Your claim is effective the week that you file your application for unemployment. If you do not finish filing your claim within the 7–day period following your first attempt, you will have to start over from the beginning and answer all questions again. In addition, the effective date of your claim will change which means you will not receive waiting week credit or payment for the previous week(s). At the time of filing you will need information including your Social Security number. Full mailing address, including apartment or lot number, Zip Code and PO Box if you use one. A phone number where you can be reached during the day. The name and mailing address of your last employer, no matter how long you worked there. The date you began and stopped working for each employer and the reason you left each job. The county in which you live. Your driver's license number. If you are not a citizen or national of the US, your employment authorization number and expiration date 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 Kansas 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.
