In Pennsylvania, the Department of Labor & Industry handles unemployment benefits and determines eligibility on a case-by-case basis. Applicants must meet the following three eligibility requirements in order to collect unemployment benefits in Pennsylvania:
• Your past earnings must meet certain minimum thresholds.
• You must be unemployed through no fault of your own, as defined by Pennsylvania law.
• You must be able and available to work, and you must be actively seeking employment.
Also to obtain benefits:
During the base period, you must meet all of the following requirements in order to be eligible for unemployment:
Due to the quotes around the word, Lawful, I'm going to add this; the majority of people collecting unemployment were terminated lawfully. Being approved for unemployment does not mean that your termination was unlawful or even that your employer was wrong to terminate you. It means that you were terminated for a reason that does not disqualify you, and/or your employer did not sufficiently make a case that you should not receive them.
