NYS Unemployment Benefits

Hey, guess what, NYS unemployment benefits are one and the same for even those trying to collect New York City unemployment.

I only mention this because keyword research was an integral part of  learning how to build a website in 2007 and especially because I can't afford to advertise my services.

It struck me as odd, at first anyway, that inquiries about collecting  NYC  unemployment benefits outweighed those asking about NYS unemployment.

Then I did a little googling and it appears that's where most New Yorkers live. (This opens in a new window and is  just a Wiki factoid page.)

My question was easily answered, but I'm still trying to figure out why NY hasn't yet raised their maximum weekly benefit amount of $405 dollars.  It's been stuck there for a very, very long time.

Now, enough complaining from me.    How about some NYS unemployment questions and answers that rely on my personal collection of bookmarks acquired as an employee.

NY's resources were just one that help me to explain to myself how unemployment works.  

I'm almost certain you have room for improvement when it comes to actually making a better argument to collect.

New York Unemployment Law Interpretive Case Index is a goldmine  of unemployment  explanations, you should not ignore.
