Questions & Answers

  1. bettejean mier says:

    I am registered for unemployment but only received one check in February it is now the end of March and no check. what’s going on ?

  2. KC says:

    I’ve been receiving unemployment benefits for weeks but my claim now has to be RECERTIFIED because it’s been over a year. What does that mean? Will I be able to collect the rest of my benefits?

    • Martin says:

      Well, it means that the previous certification has either lapsed or withdrawn.

      Please inquire further with the labor authorities in your state.

  3. William says:

    I tried to file online as I do each week, I was working Part Time, and claiming as advised, so that my claim remained open, even if it meant I was not eligible for benefits, now I was laid off completely, go to file my claim today, and it says benefits are not available due to separation issue. Can I go to an office to find out what this means? I seem to have a problem with my benefits each week. I work hard, and I have not ever taken advantage or lied. I work for a Carpenters Union and I am now laid off. I want to know if I can go to a One Stop Center with all of my identification and figure out with a rep why I am having so many issues. I am the sole provider for my family with 2 young children, and I rely on my benefits to feed them. I have worked all my life, I have 10,500 in available benefits but I can’t file. I am so confused and upset about this constant problem.

    • Martin says:

      It means that you’re not eligible for benefits.

      UI compensation are only available to those who’re separated from their last job due to involuntary reasons.You may want to call the claims center to establish the exact reason. If its not fair, please consider filing an appeal.

      • william says:

        I have an open claim, and i was laid off due to the job ending, I was claiming, because I was working pt.. There is over 10k left on my existing claim, and it says that there aren’t benefits available, I called today, was told I would get called back, and 6 hrs later, when called back, I was disconnected from their call back. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get someone who can give me a straight answer, if I claimed the week before with no problem, why a problem this week. I shall be on eternal hold again tomorrow, I just wanted to know if there is an office I can go to and speak with someone who has a clue

  4. danielle says:

    • Martin says:

      Why don’t you try the online route to check status?

      Please visit the official website of the Unemployment Office in your state for an update.

  5. Barbara Devereaux says:

    Hello,

    It says my claim has been pended and list 3 numbers for me to call but every time I call I can not get through it says there are too many callers at this time. I have resubmitted a new claim, how do I know if I am approved? It is still showing the pended claim. Please Help!!!

  6. Elena says:

    My claim is approved but I cannot submit very first bi-weekly claim on internet – since week starts on Sunday, and my very last work day was Monday!!! It was filed properly, I did not lie about that Monday. So system requests – step by step – to enter that I worked this week. I do. I calculated amount I probably earned on that Monday, and 8 hours, and I put zeros for the second week. Next mandatory field is “Enter the date you returned to full-time work” – cannot leave it blank. I put that Monday day. THEN system refuses to do anything – since for the system I AM BACK TO WORK??? Cannot reach anyone on the phone, and cannot find the location for the Mercer county – to talk to someone in person!!!

    • Martin says:

      Please recheck the procedure available on the official website of the labor dept in your state and validate.

      Read the literature carefully. I am sure something is not being done right.

      • Elena says:

        System has my approved application already. As per my claim – I worked on Monday, 08/31. When I follow online bi-weekly claim form – following step by step – I cannot proceed. Steps are easy and could not be avoided. It gives instructions every time it does not like what I entered. But at the end it asks for number of hours and money received for the second week – and zeros are not accepted. This is it, dead end. I guess the only solution is to go to the real office and talk to real people. Maybe they could do that manually somehow. Wish me luck :)

  7. james vallone says:

    can I go into Neptune city office to ask questions about a possible claim from working from march 2015 to June 2015 and earning approx. $9,500.00.Icant access my info on line at this time.

    • Martin says:

      You can walk into any of the designated offices as listed on the website of the labor dept in NJ and they should be able to help.

  8. Rude says:

    WHY DOES THE PEOPLE WORKING AT THE UNEMP DEPT IN NEW JERSEY HAVE ATTITUDE PROBLEMS. THEY KEEP HANGING UP WHEN ASKED A SIMPLE QUESTION OR IF ASKED TO SPEAK TO THEIR SUPERVISIOR. BUNCH OF UNEDUCATED UNPROFESSIONAL NIGGGGGERS. KEEP CONFINING EM TO THE GHETTOS WHERE THEY BELONG

    IF ANYONE HAS TO GO THROUGH THE PAINFUL PROCESS OF HOLDING ON THE PHONE FOR HOURS AND THE AGENT IS RUDE OR HANGS UP, RECORD THE NEXT CALL ON YOUR LAPTOP OR PHONE, BURN A COPY ON DVD AND SEND IT TO THE GOVERNORS OFFICE AND LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU ALSO SENT A COPY TO THE MEDIA SINCE THIS PUBLIC EMPLOYEES CANT GET THEIR ACTS TOGETHER. IT WORKS!!

  9. 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.

  10. 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:

      I waited on the phone for three and a half hours to speak to someone after listening to elevator music for that long you kind of go numb when I heard the phone ring in steed of music playing I said hello no one answered waited a few more seconds then said OMG please tell me after 3 & 1/2 hours I haven’t been disconnected then a few seconds later a women answered and asked me for my amount of pay for the week I worked June 28th I told her the stub said my last work week ended on the 25 then she told me i hate when people complain about being on hold for over three hours and then they don’t have the info I ask for and she hung up on me what do I do now I just wanted to ask why the if my claim went through because it’s my first time filing online and the submit button wouldn’t work. Who can I complain to. very frustrated.

      • Adrian says:

        Please note that we are not a govt. website.

        Kindly route this thru the right channel with the labor dept in your state.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Keith says:

    • Adrian says:

  18. 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?

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
