When Is The Right Time To Apply For Benefits?

A person should apply as soon as he/she becomes unemployed. Usually individuals file during the first calendar week after losing a job. Weekly benefits are not paid retroactively, so the sooner he/she files, the sooner an applicant may be eligible for benefits.
