How to Cancel Tennessee Unemployment

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

I need help my ui stopped due to me receiving a job. I notified the Gallatin/Sumner County UI office after receiving a letter I was to come in person that I had a job. The employee thanked me for calling and said she would report my employment. Now I am receiving a letter telling me my UI is going to be terminated because I failed to report. I did call and explained I was working. However, should I be unemployed again, I want this straightened out. I went to work on June 15 and didn't report to the appointment because of work and notified the UI office as well as called to see what I was to do about certification and this employee said simply "stop certifying". Please let me know the status, I don't understand why this wasn't reported.

I was recently laid off a seasonal job and filed for unemployment as instructed by my employer. Since that time I realize I probably don't qualify because I am receiving monthly distributions from a IRA. How can I stop the claim from being processed? I do not want to commit any fraud or receive anything I am not eligible for. I did not see a "cancel" option anywhere.
