How long do I have to be employed at a job in order to be eligible for unemployment benefits?

Return to FAQ Videos


The state of Florida awards unemployment benefits based on employees who’ve met what’s called the Base Period, and typically that’s between 4 and 5 months. There’s a certain income requirement that’s required as well. If you’re unsure the unemployment office will help you ferret that out after you’re application process is complete.
