Denied Benefits?

You can be denied benefits for leaving work without good cause, being discharged fro misconduct, not being able to work or available to work, refusing an offer of suitable work, or knowingly making false statements to obtain benefit payments. While Federal laws pertaining to Unemployment Insurance include only broad requirements state laws must contain, it is up to each state to make determinations of eligibility based on its own laws. Only your State Workforce Agency can make a determination to pay or deny benefits. Therefore, it is extremely important that you file an appeal and/or request reconsideration of your determination according to your state’s Unemployment laws and procedures.
