How to Cancel New York Unemployment

When you find a new job you can no longer receive New York unemployment benefits and may need to officially cancel your New York 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 receiving unemployment benefits while working.

what if you filed for unemployment but were not given any money so you stopped weekly claiming. four months later you start working full time and after 6 months are laid off. how would you go about filing a claim if there is still an existing claim from before? please help!

I recently applied for unemployment but would like to cancel my application. I don't see any tools on the website and can't get through to customer service.

I filed for unemployment last week and I'm still in a waiting period. I want to withdraw or cancel my claim cause I dont want it to jeapordize my social security disability benefits. Every time I try to call to cancel, I get the run-around to press other numbers. Should I just not call or certify when my waiting period is up? The weekly rate they want to give me is not worth this aggravation. Dont know what to do? NY sucks. Help.
