Am I eligible for unemployment benefits?

Claimants may be eligible for benefits when they become unemployed through no fault of their own.
This includes being laid off due to lack of work, a reduction in hours resulting in less than full-time work,
being discharged for reasons other than misconduct, or quitting for good cause connected with the
work. It could also include a transfer from one business entity to another, if the businesses have
different ownership or federal identification numbers.

My claim says that it still has pending issues. How do I see what is still pending?

You can check what pending issue you have by logging into your unemployment insurance account, selecting the menu option “View and Maintain Account Information” and then select “Issues and Determinations”. Scroll down towards the bottom of your screen and you can see what is pending. Please be advised that the department adjudicates issues in the order they are received.

When filling out my initial claim, I requested a backdate. It asked me to fill out a questionnaire, but I get an error message. Why?

Certain questions within the questionnaire are dependent on the first answer you provide. If you say “yes” that your employer posted the information in the workplace about your right to file a claim, you should skip the next question. You would only complete the next question if you answered “no” to the question “Did you know you could file for benefits?” Read each question and instructions carefully when filling out questionnaires.
