- Register for work at the Maine Job Service
- Actively look for work
- Accept any job offer
- Participate in any no-cost training, retraining, educational, or rehabilitative program that would help you get a job if referred to such a program by your caseworker

If you have been working but quit your job without a good reason or got fired from your job, you are automatically ineligible to receive assistance for 120 days from the date of separation from your employment.
