PM 01-02-03-a: Applying for Unemployment Insurance (TANF)

WAG 01-02-03-a.

For TANF, when an adult loses employment, determine potential eligibility for Unemployment Insurance (UI).

A person who is potentially eligible for UI must apply for UI as a condition of their eligibility if they are required to work or participate in work and training activities.

A person who is exempt from work and training activities or who is unable to work due to a medical barrier is not required to apply for UI as a condition of their eligibility. Inform the person that they may be eligible for UI, in case they want to apply for the benefits.

A client who is receiving UI benefits or who has a pending UI application does not have to reapply for UI.
