In most cases, claimants should file for unemployment benefits in the state where they performed the work. In cases where a claimant worked in more than one state, the claimant should examine the eligibility requirements, such as minimum earnings, in each state and file in the state where he or she meets those requirements.

It is unlikely that a claimant could receive unemployment benefits from more than one state, but because unemployment laws vary by state, the claimant can inquire further with respective state unemployment offices.
