Collecting unemployment while appealing decision.
I was fired from my job on july 16 2009 and have been collecting unemployment since. On sept. 21 i had to go to a referee hearing against my employer. The referee sided with the company and denied me anymore benefits. I filed an appeal yesterday. Am i still able to file and receive my unemployment because I'm appealing the decision. Also last week I received a letter from the review board stating that I did not have to pay back the money I've been given since july.
You should continue to file if you have appealed to the board of review, but the decision is what now stands. You will not get anymore benefits unless the board vacates or reverses the referee decision.
That's great new that you won't be required to repay benefits .. must think it was a department error with regard to the initial determination.
Good Luck with the appeal.
