Eligibility For Benefits
In an eligibility case, the burden of proof is always on the claimant to prove that he or she filed a claim and, for every week he or she is claiming benefits, he or. she was:
(1) Able to work;
(2) Available for full-time, suitable work;
(3) Actively seeking work, unless this requirement has been excused; and
(4) Reporting for benefits as directed by the Agency, or had good cause for not reporting or filing as directed.
It is a good idea to keep notes about where you looked for work each week, and to bring those notes with you to the hearing.
