How to Cancel Maine Unemployment

When you find a new job you can no longer receive Maine unemployment benefits and may need to officially cancel your Maine unemployment.

In order to cancel your unemployment claim, you can:

1. Call, send a letter, or email to your unemployment counselor letting them know that you have found a new job.
2. Stop filing your weekly certification.

If you happen to receive an unemployment check while you are working, make sure to call your unemployment counselor to let them know. You may need to return the check - but this will be better than any possible penalties that you could be responsible for if you are found to be recieving unemployment benefits while working.

Got a letter in the mail saying I continued filing to unemployment even though I was employed. I haven't filed since before I found work. I was told that when I had my interview that I wouldn't have to do anything else after letting them know I did find work and asked if it would affect unemployment and she told me no. I am new to this and I really don't know what to do.

I got a letter in the mail saying I continued filing for unemployment benefits after I had started employment. I was told that when I had my interview that I wouldn't have to do anything else after letting them know I found a job. I am new to this and I only collected money when I was out of a job. What do I do?

I would like to cancel my application that was submitted on 08/14/17. I applied for a possible outcome, which has since been changed and employment at KeyBank will continue.

Thank you!
