If The Application Is Allowed, Will The Applicant Receive Benefits?

Not necessarily. The allowance of an application means only that the applicant had sufficient qualifying weeks and wages. After an application is allowed and the applicant files a claim for a week of unemployment, the agency must determine if all of the eligibility requirements for that week are met. An applicant will not receive benefits for the duration of his/her unemployment if he/she: was discharged for just cause in connection with the work; or if he/she quit without just cause.
