What are the eligibility requirements to file an unemployment claim in Wyoming

While every state may have some additional requirements for being eligible for unemployment, the federal rules will typically trump those. However, it is rare that state law and federal law will contradict each other. In Wyoming, the standards for applying for unemployment insurance so that you can claim your benefits are relatively simple and align with federal standards.

To qualify to file an unemployment claim in Wyoming, you must:

  • Have already earned sufficient wage credits from previous work experience.

  • Been unemployed due to no fault of your own.

  • Be actively seeking work, and have proof of such.

That’s generally all you will need in order to be eligible to apply for unemployment. Whether or not you are able to receive unemployment is another topic all together. Every case will be treated according to the particular circumstances surrounding it. For some people, it will be clear as to what they will or will not receive. For others, there may be a few more hoops to jump through before they are able to get unemployment. If you have any questions along the way, Wyoming Workforce is there to help you.
