Questions & Answers

  1. Tara says:

    My claim has been pending for four weeks, I am unable to get through on the phone. Can I go to an office for info? Also, do I have to go to the office in my county or can I go to an office closer to me that is NOT in my county.

    • Adrian says:

      Four weeks is a long period for claim processioning.

      I am sure the processing is centralized and any local unemployment office should have access to claim information. Please consider visiting the closest one.

  2. Andrea Bianchi says:

    I am holding for an hour and a half so far trying to open a claim on the phone as it’s a cwc. I’ve never had to wait this long. it’s Monday and the second time I’m calling because I waited over an hour last Thursday. Should I hang up and go to an office?

    • Adrian says:

      I hope you were able to get through and file b now.

    • Eileen says:

Who can I complain to. very frustrated.

      • Adrian says:

  3. Madhu Soni says:

    I was getting disability insurance, i still cannot go to work because of my sickness, can i get unemployment insurance, or continue to get disability insurance.

    • Adrian says:

      You will not be eligible as you are not able to take up work.

      Please continue with disability insurance.

  4. Tricia says:

    I have 2 questions:
    1. Can you go to any unemployment office in person to file?

    2. I was just released from active duty training for the army, I am in the NJ national guard and was told if I bring my DD214 I elegible for unemployment. Although when I first got home I found a job that I stayed at for a few weeks and had to leave due to the boss making me extremly uncomfortable and only offering hours 2 days a week. Am I still elegible to claim since I was active for 6 months training?

    • Adrian says:

      Please consider filing online/by phone. Very few labor departments encourage filing in person.

      Not sure of your second question. Please check with the claims phone line.

  5. Keith says:

  10. Joe Q says:

    I have recently been laid off due to a company downsize. I live in New Jersey and commuted daily to New York. My company is based in Jersey City and uses Jersey City as its headquarters.
    Can I file in New Jersey or must I file in New York?

  11. victor says:

    I worked in nj for the last 8 years, and live in new york.
    I tried applying online on the new york ui website, but indicates that I can’t apply in ny because , I worked in nj. yet I was told by a new york rep. that I could apply in ny. what is the real answer to where I can apply. its impossible to get someone in nj to speak directly to on the phone.

  12. Michael says:

    I live in New York. I have worked in New Jersey for 18 years, until Dec 31, 2012, then my job transferred me to New York. This October I lost my job due to a lay-off. I would qualify for the maximum amount in unemployment. So for the past 18 months, I have worked in both NY and NJ. Can I apply for un-employment in New Jersey as it would be the a higher dollar amount? and how would I apply? Seems like it is impossible to talk to someone when calling on the telephone or find information on line about this situation. Thank you, your help appreciated.

    • kathy says:

      You can apply in any state in which your wages have been reported – call the state you prefer or apply online. I would recommend NJ because the wages are older.
