Direct Link to Massachusetts Unemployment

From Massachusetts's Website:
Have you lost your job? You may qualify for temporary income to support you while you look for a new one.

You should apply for unemployment benefits during your first week of total or partial unemployment. Most claims are processed within 21-28 days after filing. It may take longer if there is an issue with your claim.
