I filed my initial claim I'm Mn. Because that is where I filed last year. The benefit rate is almost double what it is in Wisconsin and since I worked in both states I was told I could file in either state. It took 4 weeks for Mn. To tell me that I had to file in Wi because the majority of the work I did was in Wi. However, MN also said they would note that I had filed in a timely manner so that I could receive my benefits all the way back to my initial time of layoff. Wisconsin still denied my benefits for those first 4 weeks. I filed an appeal and I'm now waiting for my hearing. Do I have a legitimate case? I did everything I was supposed to do and now I've been screwed out of over $1300! It's my money paid by my employers.....how can they deny bemefits?
