Appeal of Benefit Determination
WHY FILE AN APPEAL
If you feel that the decision of the Unemployment Compensation Division on a claim was based on
incorrect or incomplete information, or that the law was not correctly applied, you may file an
appeal in most cases. There are some determinations for which no appeal rights are granted.
You cannot appeal in the following situations, and should contact the Unemployment Compensation
Division to address these issues:
Nonpayment of benefits for a waiting week as determined by unemployment insurance law
Pending eligibility issues
Pending weekly certification errors
Request to backdate effective date of claim or weekly certification before a determination is made
Income tax intercepts for recovery of outstanding overpayments
WHO MAY FILE AN APPEAL
Appeals of the decisions of the Unemployment Compensation Division may be filed by
either the claimant or employer. All appeals must include the claimant’s full name
with last four digits of the social security number, reason for appeal, and a
signature of the requestor. Please note the following:
