You should be able to check the status of your online unemployment application by logging into your account, using your username and password. If you cannot find the answers that you are looking for, you will find the phone number of your state unemployment office online so you can call for assistance.

It isn’t difficult to file a claim online, but there is some basic information that you will need to have access to, so it may be worth checking what that is before you start. Requirements can be different depending on what state you are in, but generally you will need a mailing address, including your ZIP code and a phone number; your Social Security number;  if you have a Driver’s License you will need the number; your Veteran or Military separation date if that is applicable; your Mother’s maiden name for security purposes; the name, address and phone number of your last employer; your previous employer’s Federal ID Number (you’ll find this on your W2 form, or on your pay stub); the date you started and finished your employment; how much you earnt; and previous employer information if you worked for your last employer for less than two years.

If you live in one state but worked in another, or if you have moved, you should make your claim to the state where you worked. If you worked in more than one state, check with the state unemployment office where you now live; they will give you the information that you need about claiming from other states.

The criterion for claiming unemployment benefits is that you are out of work through no fault of your own. If you were fired, or left of your own free will, claims become more complicated, so if this is the case for you, maybe you should consider taking some advice.

If you have not heard anything, then call the office. You should have received a claims confirmation letter and a financial determination. Are you filing your weeks? Did you receive a pin number to do this? Uc offices are very backlogged because of the federal extensions that have been implemented. Call, get someone on the phone. If the interviewer gives you a hard time, ask to speak to a supervisor. Try not to get nasty on the phone with uc, you will get better results if kind. Call uc.

Raymond, only your uc office can answer this. Call them. If the interviewer does not give you a satisfying answer, then ask to speak to a supervisor. Uc offices are backlogged due to the federal extensions put in place. Call and be persistant, you will get results.

If you have not received your claims confirmation letter or financial determination, then call your local uc office. You do not indicate what state are from. All states have a website. Go to that website and use the keyword unemployment. You should be able to get the 800 number from there. Beware of sites that charge you for filing for uc. This is a free service by each state. YOU MUST contact them. They may be backlogged, tho unlikely. Probably an error was made by you when filing.

All the questions above have a common denominator.....no one received a response from their local uc office.  Again, I repeat, you should get a claims confirmation letter and a financial determination within days of filing for uc, unless you filed on internet and your claim was not a "clean" claim and had to be reviewed & built by the uc office.  Most offices are very backlogged due to the flood of extensions the federal gov has made available.  Call your local office, all states have a website, go to that site & enter the keyword unemployment.  Then, find the toll free phone and call.  If you get a busy signal, keep pushing redial.  Be persistent!  When the interviewer answers, ask if the claim you filed is on record.  If it is not, ask to file a claim at that moment and ask for backdating.  They should tell you to expect some mailings from them, including your claims confirmation letter, your pin number and a financial determination, also a uc handbook.  They will give a date for you to claim your next set of weeks.  Write the date on a calendar, mark every other week, these are the weeks you are to call & claim.  Be timely calling your weeks in to avoid a reporting requirement issue.  It is your responsibility to call them.  If the uc office does not know you are having a problem,  they cannot help you.  Most are there to help the unemployed.  Do not believe the claims that "they act like it is their money and don't want to help".  This is not true.  These offices are staffed with good customer service personnel.
