Unemployment Insurance/Benefits hearing

To receive representation for an umemployment hearing call our office.


Unemployment Insurance (UI) provides temporary income:

  • For eligible workers

  • Who lose their jobs

  • Through no fault of their own

Claiming weekly benefits (certifying for benefits)

  • You must claim benefits each week that you are unemployed and looking for work, including while you are waiting for your benefits to begin. Most people do this on Sunday for the previous week. A week, for the purposes of Unemployment Insurance, runs from Monday through Sunday.

  • You will be asked a series of questions when you claim weekly benefits. To avoid committing fraud, you must answer all of these questions truthfully. 

Receiving benefits

  • You will not be paid benefits for your first week you are qualified but you must still claim benefits for it. 

  • It usually takes three weeks for your benefits to begin. If you are eligible for benefits, you will be paid for any weeks you are owed when you receive your first payment.

  • Important: Continue to claim benefits each week you are out of work while we are processing your application.
