Whether you have been wrongfully terminated, forced to quit, or were simply laid off, you are probably entitled unemployment benefits. Apart from the unemployment benefits offered by the federal government, each state has its own benefits for out-of-work residents.
However, they also have their own criteria you must meet in order to receive such benefits, and some of them might be more complex. Should you be eligible for unemployment, then the next step is to simply file a benefits claim.
Although most employers approve the claim, there are some that unfortunately are either turned down or contested. This does not mean the process is over. On the contrary, you have the right to appeal such denial. Even if you think you are not eligible to receive any benefit because, for example, you quit your job, there are still some cases in which you might have entitled to them.
