Questions & Answers

  1. Dianna says:

    I filed for unemployment 5 days ago. I tried to get online to file my job search but it says I am already in the system but I do not remember my old login or PW. I have been looking for a phone number so I can do it over the phone but the only number I can find is the office #. All is closed on Sundays. What can I do? I do not want to loose anything because of a weekend closer. Please Help.

      I am afraid, you have to wait until the phone systems are working again to speak to a representative. Also, you should be able to find an option on the internet that talks about “Forgot Password” or something similar.

    Hello, I will be moving in July to follow my husband for a new job in Las Vegas and will have to quit my job in California and will be unemployed in Nevada hoping for a short period of time. Does anyone know if i am eligible to receive unemployment insurance in Nevada? What state do I contact to ask?

    • Sam says:

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

    I have been collecting my unemployment benefits for a couple months now, using the online system. All of a sudden, it says I am not authorized to use the system because the information I entered is incorrect. How does this happen? I haven’t changed anything in my personal information, yet it won’t allow me to file.

  17. judith weiss says:

    I unfortunately missed the telephone interview call for Nevada unemployment insurance that was scheduled for today (the whole day there was no window) and I cannot call back (the number busy-outs). How can I get through to reschedule it.

  18. Professor Steven White says:

    I called in my hours last week. I only made $52, but someone entered it as $520. That lowered my benefits. I called in repeatedly until I got through. The young lady I talked to said she would correct the system, and I would get the remainder of my benefits on Friday. It’s Sunday now, and no sign of my benefits. What can I do?

  19. Thomas Spicer says:

    I have filed 2 claims since Nevada implemented the new computer upgrade. I was unable to log on the system with my user ID and password that I created. It keeps telling me my information is wrong. It is not wrong. I finally got through on the telephone and filed for the week the system was down and the week after that. I have since tried to call your office and find out why my log in will not work, and why I have yet to receive my unemployment benefits. Over 600 busy signals later, I have still not gotten through. My social is 534-78-8968 and my birthdate is 07-21-1963. I would like to have this matter cleared up as soon as possible. I have been reduced to less than 30 hours a week and have since lost my car due to lack of income. Please help me resolve this issue. Thank you.

    I’m on a leave of absence for 6 weeks due to a heart attack. I will not receive a pay check during that time and I have bills to pay. Please let me know if I can collect unemployment during that time. I live in the state of Nevada and appreciate you taking the time to respond.

      Are you able to work light duty at your company or anywhere? You would have to call the local unemployment office – they will get more details from you and be better able to advise you what is available.
