North Dakota Unemployment Benefit Questions
How will my pension affect my benefits?
Pension, retirement, annuity, or other similar periodic payments will reduce your weekly benefit payments if employers in your “base period” contributed to or maintained the pension plan.
Pensions that may reduce your payment can include private employer and union pensions, state and local government pensions, federal civil service pensions (including disability pensions), military retirement pensions (non-disability and disability), and railroad retirement annuities.
Nondeductible pensions include Social Security pensions and pensions based on the extent of disability or injury rather than length of service, such as, Veterans Administration service-connected disability compensation.
It is your responsibility to keep Job Service North Dakota informed of any changes in your retirement amount. Please notify immediately when you receive a notice of benefit change from your pension source. Failure to do so may result in a substantial overpayment or underpayment of your unemployment insurance benefits.
What to do if I am moving out of North Dakota?
Your unemployment insurance benefits may stop if you fail to notify Job Service before you move out-of-state. Call the Claims Center at 701-328-4995 (TTY: 800-366-6888) for instructions on how to continue your claim once you move outside North Dakota.
What is misrepresentation or fraud?
You will be disqualified from benefits – and subject to criminal prosecution – if you knowingly make false statements or fail to report material facts in an attempt to collect unemployment insurance benefits. The disqualification period for misrepresentation or fraud may be imposed over a long period of time. Provide accurate and complete information at Job Service North Dakota’s request. You must repay any benefits you receive as a result of failing to report facts.
