  1. Hello .I work in Towson university and I get temporarily lay off in summers .I receive unemployment benefit during the summer .Now my question is if I attend a school for two month do I lose my benefit?

    1. Ali,

      That is correct. Attending school hampers chances of engaging in a full-time job and therefore has an impact on UI benefits. Please call the Unemployment Office for more.

  2. Can my boss even though I have been working there almost a year hold pay from me until I get my DOT Physical even after putting me on the payroll? They said I started in April but I really started in May and they told me to go home until I have it done. Can I file for these two weeks?

  3. What can you do if you work for a company and they tell you there is no work and they will call you when they are busy? Shouldn’t they have to lay you off?

    1. Linda,

      If you’re on full-time rolls of the company and they’re paying UI taxes into the system, you might be able to claim partial UI benefits. Please call the Unemployment Office for more.

    1. Lexi,

      Please note this is a private forum and we do not have access to the office. Please try calling during off-peak hours or visit the official website for additional phone numbers.

    1. Stephanie,

      Please note this is a private forum and we do not have access to the claims system. If you’re facing issues with the fax line, please call the Claims Center for assistance.

  4. I just received my last check from my previous job. I have already filed for unemployment benefits. Should I enter this amount on my weekly claim certification?

    1. Amber,

      If there is a provision, please do. Else, call the Claims Center on the phone numbers provided for further instructions.

  5. Was suppose to receive call back from unemployment last week after my employer answered, to date I haven’t received a denial letter or my payments. Unable to follow up as I cant reach anyone by phone, how do I find out the status of my claim?

    1. You can simply stop claiming weekly benefits.

      I suggest you call the Claims Center and speak to them for clarification in this regard.

    1. If you’re on permanent rolls and getting laid off due to involuntary reasons, you can apply immediately for UI benefits.

  6. I was being harassed by my new Unit Director and I filed a grievance against her and asked to be removed from her unit as it had become a Hostile workplace I went to work today and was told they don’t have any jobs for me I live in Pa but have always worked in MD.What should be my next step?.

    1. Please see if you can escalate the situation to the top management or human resource representative to see if you can find any relief as this seems to be a case of vengeance. If you believe that you are not at fault, you must brave all odds.
      If you’re fired, you may look at filing for UI benefits until you find a job.The state also provides job assistance in this regard.

  7. Hello’ I need help in locating someone to document my status of an address change. my past address was,3041 Spaulding Avenue, Baltimore Maryland 21215. My contact number is #443-635-6183> However, the landlord refuses to indicate or give me any mail that comes from your office and his girl friend stated that he opens my mail. He will try to claim that he’s me and order a new card with a new pin to collect my benefits. Can someone please call me and my last digits of SS# 6603. Thank you for taking the time to read this short note.
