Questions & Answers

  1. John Funk says:

    I was laid off due to a reduction in force 12/6/17. I received my last paycheck week ending 12/15/17. Starting 12/16/17 I will receive severance pay for 16 weeks. Can I file for unemploiyment as of 12/16/17 or do I have to wait until the severance pay ends?

  2. Christine Strom says:

    I just discovered that my employer doesn’t pay unemployment tax on my paychecks stub? Please advise.

    • Sam says:


      Under such circumstances, you may not qualify to receive UI benefits in the future. Please call the Unemployment Office for further details.

  3. Brad Bogus says:

    I have called the inquiry call center line, the CUB line, and the appeals line to try and find out why my payment wasn’t issued to my card. I’ve been hung up on 7 TIMES and never once transferred to an agent. I CANNOT get anything I need done through the automated system. Everytime it says I need to talk with an agent, I get hung up on or returned to the main menu without the option of talking with an agent.
    I MUST talk with someone to get my question answered, it’s not available online or in your FAQ. Who can I call? How do I reach someone? Can someone just call me?
    Please help me.


    • Sam says:


      Please note we’re a private forum and would not be able to arrange a call back from the authorities. Please visit the official website to find out additional contact details.

  4. John says:

    I’ve been an operations supervisor for 8 years and have been dating the secretary for 11 the manager that promoted me knew about us as well as every manager since. I was just informed that it was not acceptable and am now being demoted as well as take a pay cut.

    • Martin says:

      You will not be eligible since unemployment insurance is only extended to those who become unemployed due to involuntary reasons.

  5. Cari Robertson says:

    I am trying to find out if I am able to start a claim with your system. I have misplaced my pin number and cannot continue with the automated system.

    Please advise.

    Thank You

  6. DAVID says:

    I am drawing social security and just laid from full time job can I draw unemployment?

    • Martin says:

      Some states allow provision of both while some don’t.

      Please call the Unemployment Office in your state for further clarification.

  7. Jim says:

    I live in Colorado springs and I’ve been working for 3 months. Recently, my schedule changed and going to see if there’s another shift and I’m not sure if they may fire me for possibly not being able to work the new shift. So I wanted to if I would be eligible for unemployment even just after 3 months and earning about $3,000 already. If not, how long does someone have to work to be eligible because I find the base pay thing a bit confusing?

  8. Michelle says:

    I am filing “Job attached” unemployment. When I did the estimator it showed that I would be paid less if I claimed before 12/30/2015. My question is, if I claim now 12/7/15 and it takes 4-6 weeks to get approved and then 1 week for a waiting period, I will be after 12/31/2015. Will I get paid the higher amount that was showing if I waited until 12/31/15 to get the claim started? I can wait until 1/1/16 to receive my first check, but if it takes 4-6 weeks plus a waiting week, I need to file now. Just want to know if I can get the larger amount of money because I will not be receiving a check until January.

    • Martin says:

      I don’t think it will be a case of bigger payment if you file later.

      Please call the claims center for further information in this regard.

  9. William Schaer says:

    I was just layed off and wanted to know if I can start a claim for unemployment if I received a severance package. If not when can I file a claim after the severance has expired.

  10. Kevin Stine says:

    got out of the US Army in 11/2012. Went to school until 4/2014, wasn’t for me. Was getting paid to go to school by VA. Now since I am out of school. Can and how do I apply for unemployment?

    • Adrian says:

      Please check with the labor dept in your state as you were in the army and looks like your schooling was sponsored.

    I was trying to check the status of my claim, could you please help? 7196517285

  12. Stanley Plant says:

    Hi! I am to be let go then end of August. I have a direct sales job at 100% commission and can not make my quota. I completed the benefits calculator and it shows $454 per week. It doesn’t ask me about a pension I rcv from a previous employer. How does the receipt of pension payments affect my potential UI payments? Thanks

    • kathy says:

      It may or may not affect your unemployment. When you complete the actual application there will be questions that help determine what impact (if any) a pension payment will have on your benefits.

  13. Nancy Fast 7/29/13 says:

    Please help me change my tax withholding on my claim. Since the beginning, i have had federal and state taxes taken out each time. I believe enough taxes have been take out for the year. I wanted switch to having NO taxes taken out.

    The first time I attempted to make this change on the self service myuiclaimant site, I thought I had changed it, but after saving my selection, it did not show a change. A few days later I checked and it still showed the change I had requested had not been made. I made a second attempt and waited a few more days. After checking, i saw no change was made, it still showed federal ansd state taxes being taken out. Last night I tried again to make this change and the drop down menu blocked me from trying! Can you do this manually for me? Thank you for your help!
