information (mailing address and telephone number) and respond to all UIA requests to update your contact information.
If directed by the UIA, appear at a specied location provided in a mailed notice for an evaluation of your eligibility for
unemployment benets.
If requested by the UIA, provide a statement of wages (wage afdavit) for purposes of calculating your unemployment
benets as state law requires that you produce evidence of those wages (pay stubs, W-2, employer payroll records, etc.).
Be actively engaged in seeking work.
Conduct a systematic and sustained work search effort and provide proof of those efforts by submitting your work search
efforts as directed by the UIA.
