That means people who can’t attend a job interview or can’t make a regular appointment can file their application on paper instead.
But if you’re a college student who’s been unemployed for at least six months, you need a full-time job offer.
Here are the key steps for applying for unemployment in Maryland:Apply online and upload an application form.
(If you’re an out-of-state student, make sure you have an approved driver’s license, identification card, passport, and utility bill.)
Pay your application fee.
(You can pay online or by check, but you’ll need to show proof of income and proof of a job offer.)
Pay the fee in full.
(Make sure you get a confirmation letter confirming your payment.
It’s important that you receive a confirmation of your payment and your signature.)
Complete the application.
You can apply online or in person at a government office, public library, or any of the hundreds of locations listed on the state’s unemployment application website.
You must apply for benefits as a full or part-time employee.
(An employee must have a job that pays at least $50,000 a year.)
Your application is processed and mailed out in two business days.
Your benefits will be automatically mailed two weeks after you receive your benefits, or you can apply for a benefit in person.
The government says the government will mail your benefits to your address when you’re due to leave.
That will take place no later than March 31, 2018.
