How to Reopen an Existing Delaware Unemployment Claim

It may become necessary for you to reopen an existing Delaware unemployment claim if you suspend or cancel your unemployment because you found a job, and then later became unemployed again.

Generally, you can reopen an existing unemployment claim by simply filing a weekly certification online or by phone -- just like you did every week when you receiving unemployment previously.

In some cases, it may be necessary to speak to an unemployment counselor or start the process all over again in order to reopen an existing unemployment claim in Delaware. If this is the case, contact your unemployment counselor to get exact instructions on how to proceed.

I was laid off August 26 2011from a Delaware company. I filed in Pennsylvania because I thought you had to file in the state you live in. They sent me a letter saying you file in the state you worked at not live in. Pa automatically sent my claim to Delaware. The Company was out Delaware but I worked for them in Maryland also. I had the option of filing in either state. I choose Maryland because they pay 100.00 more then Delaware. When I received my letter from Delaware I called and told them I had already filed in Maryland and that I didn't open a claim in Delaware. They said pa had sent it to them. I told I did not want it. So I never received checks from Delaware. I received from Maryland. My amount has now ran out and I applied for the emergency 20 weeks with them. When I didn't receive my money I called them. They said their records show I have an open case in Delaware. How can that be? I got my unemployment from Maryland, I never got any money from Delaware. Now Maryland is saying there is nothing I can do. They say I can not get the emergency money from. I can't meet my off of Delaware and why did Maryland pay me if I had an open claim in Delaware. When I called Delaware they said no problem they would cancel the claim. That it happens a lot. Now im being cut off because of it.
