Unemployment appeal past deadline
by: Anonymous

I got my unemployment terminated for accidently clicking the wrong answer on the question machine but it's been over half a year would I still have a chance of appealing?



If you're going to file an appeal late, you need good cause for the late filing.

If you've known for six months why your benefits were suspended and you're just now wondering if you can file .. I'd say your chances would be slim to none.

But then again, don't let me stop you from filing an appeal six months after you knew why you were denied, if you think you have a good cause reason for filing your appeal so late.

Maybe you even had a job in between then and now .. and the earnings from it were enough to purge any disqualification .. if your separation from any job .. ends up being found as eligible to collect.

That makes sense for a late filing of a continuing claim for benefits
by: Chris

However, if the late appeal was for an initial denial of benefits based upon a determination for quitting without good cause, getting fired for misconduct, that late filing of an appeal must be with good cause to finally address the issue at an appeal hearing.


That was what my answer was addressing because I didn't read any mention the lateness was not certifying for continuing benefits on time.

But your point is well taken and I'm sure will be good for some who do forget to continue the claim as that is not disqualifying,

It just postpones the receipt of benefits and the eventual exhaustion date of a benefit balance ..

Wouldn't you agree?

Call Tele-Serv
by: Anonymous

I've seen this happen before. Call Tele-Serv on the day that you are scheduled to request payment. The representative will ask you questions and based on your response, he/she will give you access to request payment for that period again. They might still deny the payment for that period, but it will allow you continue requesting payments for future periods. At which point, the appeal will only be for that specific period rather than for the entire claim, meaning you will continue to receive checks for current and future periods, but you might still lose that one check. If you have been looking for work as you should and can provide all documentation of such activity, then file the appeal for that payment and they will approve it.

You tell me if you think this means S.O.L.
by: Chris

You wouldn't be able to file a new claim against the same company, you would have to meet the requirements of the disqualification you were tried to appeal, but did so untimely. If the hearing decision finds you did not have good cause for the untimely appeal there is a process that may requalify you for benefits still within your claims benefit year.

Usually, a disqualification requires that the person find new work, earn x times their weekly benefit amount in the new work.

And then if they suffer a separation from the new work .. still not their fault, the last disqualification has been satisfied and they will begin to collect benefits, but based off a different job loss.
