How long does the appeals process take in SC?
I was denied Unemployment Benefits as of May 11th, I will be filing an appeal on May 17th. How long from this date could a hearing be scheduled? Also can they decline to hear an appeal.
I don't know for sure. In the good old days before everyone was trying to get unemployment .. I would expect the wait to be around thirty days .. but ...
If other states are any indication .. it can take a while and much longer than even the federal guidelines think is an acceptable length of time, some have told me they waited five months for a hearing.
SC is on of two states that I had very little contact with .. they hated third party administrators and wouldn't talk to third party administrators .. we had to hire a lawyer to do everything for us .. because SC is an "attorney state".
I guess will just have to wait and see if your inquiry picks up any comments .. others waiting for a South Carolina unemployment appeal hearing would be the experts.
