Your unemployment statements allow you to keep track of your income while you are out of work and are a good way to calculate how much you made. It is important to have a way to verify that you are unemployed because social services that help the unemployed will need verification of your income and when you file your taxes you will need to include your unemployment income with the rest of your income.
Contact the unemployment office in your town and ask them to mail copies of your unemployment statements to you. Arrange for this by walking into the unemployment office, calling the unemployment office or writing the unemployment office.
