Agency Employee: Hello, state unemployment agency.
George: Hello, I'd like to apply for unemployment benefits.
Agency Employee: Okay, give me your address and I'll send you an application.
George: How much can I get?
Agency Employee: That depends. Your benefits are calculated based on your quarterly earnings. You were laid off from your job?
机构雇员：这要视情况而定 。救济金的计算要根据你的季度盈余情况 。你已经下岗了吗？
George: Yes, I was. I qualify, don't I?
Agency Employee: People who work part-time jobs or are self-employed aren't eligible. If you worked in a full-time position, you should qualify. Fill out the application and we'll let you know.
机构雇员：有兼职工作的人或者个体户不能申请 。如果你之前的工作是全职，那么你就有申请资格 。填完申请表，我们会再通知您 。
George: What else does the application ask for?
Agency Employee: You have to affirm that you're able to work and that you're actively seeking employment.
George: I'm definitely doing that. I've been meaning to ask you, are you hiring?
