Work Search Requirements

TWC has reinstated state work search requirements, which were suspended in March due to COVID-19. Work search requirements resume on November 1, 2020. Work search is a federal requirement to receive unemployment benefits. Individuals will continue to receive benefits but must show an active effort to obtain new employment. All individuals receiving unemployment benefits will need to complete the designated number of work searches. For Southeast Texas, the required number of work searches is three. Click
