The department makes a number of formal, written determinations and decisions that may effect your entitlement to benefits and/or the amount of benefits that are payable.
If you disagree with a determination or decision, you have the right to file an appeal. Continue to file your weekly claims while you are waiting for an Administrative Law Judge or the Employment Security Board to decide your appeal. Detailed information about the Unemployment Insurance Appeals process and your rights is available.
Each determination or decision explains your right to appeal, and how and when to file your appeal. In general, an appeal must be in writing and submitted to the department within the timeframe specified in the determination or decision, which is 30 days from the date of the determination or decision, unless otherwise noted below. Your appeal should include your name, current mailing address, last four digits of your Social Security Number, the date of the determination you are appealing, and a brief explanation of the issue(s) and why you are appealing. We have created an optional appeal form for your convenience.
