Texas Unemployment Benefits

In the state of Texas, unemployment benefits payments are authorized under the Texas Unemployment Compensation Act, which is Title Four, Subtitle A of the Texas Labor Code, which governs Texas unemployment benefits.

In order to submit an Texas unemployment payment request involves the person having to submit their previous employer's business name and address, the first and last dates that the applicant worked for their previous employer (including the month, day, and year), the number of hours worked and the rate of pay during the previous week before submitting the Texas unemployment payment request, information related to the applicant’s normal wage, and either an Alien Registration Number or Social Security Number (depending on if the applicant is or is not a citizen of the United States.)

Texas unemployment benefits are funded by taxes and reimbursements provided by employer taxes. These taxes and reimbursements support the Unemployment Trust Fund. By law employers are not allowed to deduct any money from a paycheck to provide funding for these programs.

An original Texas unemployment payment request can be made online or at a neighborhood center, although a Texas unemployment payment request can also be submitted in order to change the method through which Texas Unemployment Benefits are paid in order to provide unemployment compensation. In order to make a Texas unemployment payment request to change the way the Texas unemployment benefits are paid, the person submitting the request will need to know the routing number for the bank, the account number, and account type. This information can be obtained from a check or from the bank or credit union.
