How to Cancel Minnesota Unemployment

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

Hello - I think I did a really stupid thing this week. I was working with a great consulting company and at one of their clients. The contract was supposed to end in Dec. 2013. I got let go about two weeks ago. It was unexpected because the week before, the client gave the consulting company a really great review. Apparently someone in Senior Management did not like me. Not sure why.

Anyway, when I met with the my contact at the consulting company the week of 5/18, everything was great. They were on my side. The business manager said that his company must go through a procurement office, so he couldn't speak to who I was reporting to directly. But he said that his company would let me know when something became available because they wanted me out working for them right away.

A week went by and I didn't hear from them. When I met with them, I told them I'd be just taking it easy for the week and relax through the holiday weekend. On Tuesday, 5/27, I filed for unemployment. When I saw a job posting come up, I dropped my recruiter a note and expressed interest in the assignment. I got an email from him stating that "it was best if we parted ways. Good luck to you."

I was stunned. But then it dawned on me that it's probably I'm pretty sure it's because I filed for unemployment. Mostly I did it to keep my account current, and figured I'd find something quickly.

While I can't know for sure that's the reason the company cut me off, I have a feeling it is. Especially since the week before all was well.

So, I think I've shot myself in the foot. Is there anyway I can repair the "bad press?" Can I withdraw or cancel my claim? I do not want to penalize a company that has been so good to me and has consistently found me great assignments in all of the areas where my skills are put to great use. I want to write to them and apologize, but I think that may just not be the right thing to do. I'm assuming here that my employer has already been notified that I've filed.

I'm very upset by my own lack of insight and I'm wondering if you have any advice on the process...

Hello, I registered on MN.UI from9/3/2017
Got the payments to 10/17/2017.
Called them several times, no response, no money.
Seems like people not confident in what they are doing.
Nobody cant decide nothing, cannot solve any problems.All they done to me is stopping deposit money to my account.
As the result I have no job, no money, live alone, have a serous illness, cannot find job, because cannot refuel my car.Soon will live under bridge. Have no idea, how to resolve that problem. I am in complete depression and despair.
