A Guide to Your Rights & Responsibilities When Claiming Unemployment Benefits in Connecticut
Non-U.S. Citizens

If you are not a U.S. citizen, you must be in a legal alien status now, as well as during the time in which you earned your Base Period Wages, in order for benefits to be paid.  Such individuals will be required to present proof of satisfactory legal alien status as part of the new claim process.  There are a number of documents that are issued by the U.S. Immigration Naturalization Service that are accepted as proof of legal alien status.
