When you apply for unemployment compensation, there are certain documents you will want to gather.
If you are denied benefits and need to appeal, or if your employer contests your benefits, you will want to have documents that show you are eligible for benefits.
Here are some documents/evidence you may want to keep records of:
- Notes from your doctor
- Hospital paperwork, including discharge paperwork
- Medical records or test results
- Communications from your doctor to your employer requesting accommodations or a leave of absence
