Questions, Answers On Unemployment Insurance Even in times of low unemployment, the need for unemployment insurance benefits exists. Unemployment insurance compensates eligible workers for a portion of their wage loss when they lose their jobs. For a period specified by law, it provides a weekly income to insured individuals who have lost their work through no fault of their own. The benefit check replaces from one- third to one-half of a wage earner's salary. Even though much less than his regular earnings, he has some assurance that his family will not go hungry or on relief. In order to better inform those who are interested, the following questions and answers regarding unemployment insurance have been prepared: Q. Who is eligible for unemployment insurance? A. Basically, anyone who is out of work through no fault of his own, and who had earnings of at least $200 during one quarter and $100 in another quarter of the base period, and who worked for a covered employer. Q. What is the base period? A. The base period is that period of work from which benefits are determined. It consists of the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters preceding the date on which a valid claim is filed. In determining the base period, the quarter in which the claim is filed, nor the previous quarter is counted. If the claim is filed during October, November or December, 1967, the base period would be July 1, 1966 through June 30, 1967. Q. What is a covered employer? A. Generally speaking a covered employer is one engaged in commercial or industrial pursuits and who employs four or more workers. Some exempted employments are agricultural labor, domestic service performer in a private household, service performed for Iowa state, county, city, and school districts, service performed for charitable and non-profit organizations, such as hospitals, among others. Q. When should I file? A. A claim for unemployment insurance benefits should be filed tacting the Unemployment Insurance Claims Center of the Iowa Employment Security Commission, 126 North Tenth Street, Ft. Dodge.

The present maximum weekly benefit that a claimant may receive is $53. Q. How long can I draw on a claim? A. If a claimant remains unemployed, and otherwise meets all other requirements of the law, he may draw benefits for 26 weeks. Q. What are my responsibilities while drawing benefits? A. You must be willing to accept suitable work if offered. In addition, a diligent search for work must be made. You must also register for work at a State Employment Service Office. If any wages are earned during a week for which a claim is filed, they must be reported. Failure to do any of these, may cause disqualification. Q. Are there any conditions under which I may quit a job and still be eligible? A. Yes, if it is found that you left a job to care for a member of your immediate family who is ill or injured; upon the advice of a licensed and practicing physician because of your own illness or injury. (You can not, of course, receive benefits during such time as you are ill or injured, or you are caring for a member of you family. You may be eligible if, after your period of illness or injury, you return to your former employer and he informs you that you will not be rehired); upon the advice of a licensed and practicing physician to take a member of your family to a different climate; for not more than ten working days, or for a longer period if agreed upon by your employer for compelling personal reasons.

(82-83) LIFE... NEW LIFE The theme is like your heart beat. Continuous. Life — New Life; Life — New Life. Or it's like the count-down for a space rocket's blastoff. Life — New Life; Life — New Life. It's like the peck, peck, peck of an unhatched chick, breaking an egg shell from the inside. God's mercies are new every morning. Rhythmically. Sunday, tomorrow; Monday, tomorrow. Life — New Life. The life that I now live, I live to the glory of the Son of God, who lived and died and rose again to the New Life that is mine in Him. So by sorrow and repentance I die daily to arise to Life — New Life. The reformation begun by Martin Luther 450 years ago makes these truths new today.
