If My Application For Unemployment Benefits Is Denied, What Should I Do?

by Kelly Mulloy Myers, Lawyer Referral Service Panelist

If your unemployment benefits application is denied, you have the right to file an appeal.  You must file the appeal on or before the deadline listed on the determination decision because those deadlines are strictly enforced.  You should continue to file claims for any weeks you are unemployed.  There are several appeal levels.  Once you appeal from a redetermination, a hearing will be scheduled.  Most hearings are conducted by telephone.  At the hearing, you will have the opportunity to present testimony and documents supporting your application for benefits.
