Massachusetts Unemployment Job Search Requirements
Updated : February 18th, 2021
To remain eligible, you must actively look for work and be ready and able to accept a job. This means that you must let DUA know if you were ill, injured, or were unable to work during any week you are claiming benefits.
To show DUA that you are actively seeking full-time work, you must
- establish a worksearch plan,
- maintain records of your worksearch, and
- report this information to DUA when asked to do so.
You must meet these job search requirements every week, and provide a weekly certification to let the unemployment office that you are meeting all of the requirements. Be sure to have your job search record up to date, as you may be called into the unemployment office for a periodic eligibility review.
