What are the rules and regulations about collecting unemployment?

You can apply at any time, but you will be asked to provide information in regards to "last day of work" and amount of any severance package. Your last physical day of work may be different than how long you are on the payroll. I think if you fill it our early, you will get a letter from them stating when benefits will pay out. But I think that you will still need to report each week so they know you are still laid off. That means you also need to follow the UI rules and look for employment each week. Keep a log of that information. I wish you the best of luck.
Thanks, this was very helpful information. The past two years I've defined "success" as being kind to animals and all living beings. Two years I've stopped eating all meat except for the occasional fish. Every day that I don't eat meat, I'm so happy to NOT contribute to the senseless slaughters and tortures of animal lives. All lives matter.
I would like to add that every one's definition of success is different. Most people define success as material advancements (better cars, bigger houses, nicer vacations, titles, etc.) others do so based on they are personally/internally happy. So don't let Target's definition of success ruin it for you. You are the judge - you define it and don't let any bloody fool state it otherwise! God Bless us all!
This is good information, thank all of you for this insight. I have only been laid off once in my life (I'm in my 50s) and I was rehired two days later so didn't get this far into the process. Your comments are helpful.
It is quite simple. If you file early, they pay based off of non finalized employment info. That in 99 percent of cases, reduces your benefit. While filing early gets payments started a week or two faster, waiting will get you a much higher payment and yes they retro pay you. Been in this boat before sadly.
If you file too early, they WILL reduce your unemployment payment amount.
....you should probably leave anyways. I'm sure you were all waiting for the end of that last sentence. Lol.
To clarify. It doesn't matter if you wait until after you receive your severance to apply for UI. You are asked if you received any additional compensation as part of your leaving your employment.
That amount is calculated into weeks of pay. And you will only be ELIGIBLE to receive UI benefits after those weeks of pay have run out (it's based on your average pay per week as per your salary). The state reviews your income and tgt reports it to them.
Even though tgt will tell you 'we will not disput your UI claim'....don't be fooled to think that your severance pay doesn't count as income because it does so it makes no difference if you wait on filing for UI after you get your severance pay. If you try to lie they will find out and hold a phone hearing to prove it. Tgt will be invited to attend but they will be a no-show. And you will have to then pay back the amount you had received. Either way, your eligibility will be pushed out depending on how much you received....calculated into weeks of pay.
Hope this helps and good luck to you all.
If it's any help, you will most likely move on to a much happier life and a better more lucrative career.
Target doesn't dictate your success in life. And any job that makes you feel like that, you should probably
I wish hr would keep us informed on this stuff.
Yes. File after.
This person is right. They will pay retroactively.
You need to wait until after you get your severance to file. Doing it beforehand can lead to a HUGE benefit offset.
Yes you can file online. Just google search Minnesota Unemployment.
Thank you. Where do you file? Can it be done online?
You don't start collecting your unemployment until after your severance has been used up basically. But file for unemployment right away.
