Nevada Unemployment Weekly Claims

Updated : June 20th, 2019

If you quit your job, or were fired, or if extra information should be obtained from you and/or employer due to a possible issue, you should file your weekly claim to be called for an interview and to obtain a determination of your eligibility. Continue to file your weekly claim while you are unemployed.

It may take 21 days (or more) to determine the separation issues and make a determination.

If you are ineligible because of the cause for your separation, you must return to work for an employer who pays Unemployment Insurance tax and get your weekly benefit amount in each of the specified number of weeks. If you suit this requirement with subsequent work and are otherwise qualified, you would no longer be disqualified.

    1. In Nevada they pay 40% of what you made in your highest quarter to determine what you get, unless you have earned 150% of that in the year. Then they pay 4% a week for 10 weeks. Ex: you earned 8,000 in highest quarter. $3200 in claim, paid out at $320 per week. What is bad is if you collect for 8 weeks, get a job for several months, then start again. Only can collect for 2 weeks.

  23. I filed October 21st for unemployment. Cause of a seperation issue, which I was expecting. I had to have an adjudication interview which was done November 5th. It’s now been almost 60 days since the initial filing and I havent received a decison(i check online everyday and check mail religiously). I called the adjucator personally last week, left a message inquiring and he didn’t return my call. Called the call center 2 weeks ago and they said he may possibly be backed up but couldnt say for sure and my file had no comments. Has anyone else had this problem? All over the handbook it says 21 days is the decision time frame typically, and my case seems pretty open and shut. Is it possible im filing my claims incorrectly? (Call every Sunday, answer questions)
