Nevada Unemployment

Eligibility Requirements

In order to be eligible for unemployment benefits, you must meet all of the following requirements.

  1. You have earned sufficient income in the base period to qualify for a claim.
  2. You are determined to be out of work through no fault of your own.
  3. You meet all requirements of eligibility on a week to week basis as long as you are claiming benefits.

You will receive a monetary determination within 7 days after you file your initial claim. This will tell you the monetary amount of your claim (weekly and total potentially payable benefits).

If there is a question of eligibility relating to your claim, we must review the circumstances to determine if benefits may be paid to you.

Possible Eligibility Issues:

This is a list of situations that could possibly cause you to be ineligible for unemployment benefits.

  • Separation from employment for reasons other than a layoff due to a lack of work;
  • Payment of vacation pay, severance pay or payments made by the employer in lieu of a notice of impending layoff;
  • Ability to work, availability for work or efforts to seek and secure work;
  • Failing to report to a Nevada JobConnect office as directed to review your work search activities or to determine if you need reemployment assistance;
  • Refusing work or failing to apply for a job as directed by a representative of the Nevada JobConnect office;
  • Failing to file weekly claims for each week of unemployment;
  • Failing to reply to a request for additional information or did not provide the information within the time period provided;
  • Filing a claim for benefits based on employment for an educational institution or for a professional athletic team;
  • Failing to report work and/or earnings for a week claimed for unemployment;

If there is a question of eligibility, you may receive a separate determination telling you if you are eligible based upon the reasons for the separation. If benefits are to be denied for ANY reason, you will be sent a written notice of our determination and providing you with instructions on how to file an appeal to that decision.

The fact finding and decision process normally take 3 weeks from the time you file your claim.  We make all efforts to resolve questions of eligibility as soon as possible to minimize the impact of the loss of income, or to provide you with a quick determination and opportunity to appeal if you are found to not meet all eligibility requirements.

You should receive a letter in the mail stating whether you are eligible for additional tiers of extension, with specific instructions for how to proceed.

The DETR has established a special phone line that you can call and leave a message with you name, contact info, and questions about extended unemployment benefits, and someone will return your call within 3 days:

"The telephone number, (702) 486‐2958, will be operational Friday morning. A toll free number,
1‐888‐743‐2958, will be operational on Monday for those calling outside of Las Vegas. However
this Las Vegas number is operational from any location. These numbers will be open Monday
through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., allowing all calls to be completed by 5 p.m."


Here's another new link from NV DETR with updated information about extended unemployment benefits:

Did you receive a letter from the unemployment office back in late June / early July stating that you were on the list of people eligible to receive Extended Unemployment Compensation (EUC)?

When the extension bill passed through Congress, Nevada DETR issued a statement on their website about how EUC would be handled. You can see that statement here: .

Right now, it looks like the website is not working properly, so you should contact them for help in using the online system:

or by phone: (775) 684-0427 (8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Pacific Time)

When it is working, you should do this:

If you are eligible, you should:

1. Go to the Nevada DETR Unemployment filing site:
2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the 'I Agree' button.
3. Several new buttons will appear. Click on the button that says: 'I would like to restart an Existing Claim/File an Emergency Unemployment Claim'.
4. Even thought he instructions look like they don't appear to you (for restarting an existing claim / filing for EUC) this is just be a pre-qualification screen that everyone goes through. Read the instructions and answer the questions.

I hope this helps. Let us know what you find out.

I have been unemployed for about a year, I finally landed a job last week but was told after only two days that I was not the right fit for the position. I received my pay for the two days and assumed that when I went to file my claim , that it would adjust the amount of my weekly claim. When I went to go file it said there is a potential eligibility issue and to call the claim center. I was on emergency extended benefits and it had just been re- enstated. Will I still be able to get unemployment?

# Site Admin 2010-09-03 07:14
You should still be able to collect unemployment, but the base period on which your benefit amount will be different, and thus you will probably be eligible for a considerably lower payment amount.

It *may* be possible, and this is a big maybe - that your unemployment counselor could reopen your old claim - and you be able to continue like you never left.

In situations like this it is always best to go in to the unemployment office to reopen/refile your claim so you can best explain your situation to the unemployment counselor - and also get an understanding yourself about what is going on.

I have an established unemployment claim and have moved out of state to Washington. I am a candidate for a temporary position (that has the chance to go permanent). The temp position is 4-6 weeks. If I were to be offered (and accept) the temp position:
A) should I cease filing weekly claims and;
B) If the position does not turn permanent (i.e. ends after the 4-6 week period is over), can I reopen my existing claim with Nevada. I don't believe I will qualify for Washington State unemployment benefits.

I'm asking because I don't want to risk my existing unemployment by taking a temporary position.

# Site Admin 2010-09-03 07:19

Claims between states are always the most difficult to understand - because you are dealing with two state's laws and regulations - not just one.

For these questions it would be best to ask you current unemployment counselor about the best way to proceed.

To the best of my knowledge (not being in either of these two states):

A) Yes. You should cease filing weekly claims when you take the new position - even if it is temporary.
B) It is doubtful that you will be able to reopen your existing claim - but I wouldn't count on it.

Unemployment eligibility is determined in most cases from your last employer - so it is possible that you might not be eligible for Nevada unemployment having just worked in Washington.

Best advice is to ask your unemployment counselor or caseworker.

I was on seb and I mailed in 5 weeks worth of claims. I was hired at new job and then after two days laid off because of lack of sales at the company. I claimed what I got for my paycheck for the two days on the weekly filing form and filed by mail normally for the past 3 weeks. Now on the status' of my check it says HD which means they're basically looking into an issue but it's been like that for every week I file. It's coming down to crunch time the first is coming, rent and other bills are due. I have a 3 year old daughter and I'm pregnant. Nv power has already shut off my power Friday morning reguardless of me explaining I have a child. I need to know what to do, call the ue office again (last time I did they said they don't have info on seb claims) or wait it out and hope they pay me the last checks?

On Monday oct 25 I had a phone interview with an adjustor. He asked me some questions and told me that I should be able to recieve some money either this past week (which I didnt) or this coming tuesday. I was let go on Sept 30th and started the process on October 4th. I believe I filed my first weekly claim the first week in october and have every week since. I am wondering what is going to happen next and if I am going to get a lump some of the money that I have claimed since my first claim or if I am just going to recieve the weekly amount. I am wondering that because rent is due in a couple days and I don't know what to do. Thanks

Hello! I have a strange situation; I'm a little confused. You see I first filed for unemployment in February of this year, but was unable to collect enough and was lucky enough to find another seasonal job. So, I thought I wouldn't need the debit card- I destroyed it. Now, this job is over and it turns out I DO need to file unemployment again, so I just did a couple days ago. However, when I checked on my account today, it said the last claim was February 20th! I don't know if my claim just didn't go through or what, I cannot seem to get through to the call center to find out either. I've tried the past few days continuously. Even if it did go through, I can't check the balance or withdraw any funds because I do not have the debit card, and did not activate it when I DID have it. Any advice or help in general would be really appreciated! Thank you!

Is there any way to handle this on line? If not do you know what option I need to choose from the automated menu?

I worked in nevada and made enough to qualify for the highest payment: $400.00 per week. I was recently hired to work in California for 90 days at $23.00 an hour, 40 hour weeks (equivalent of making $48,000 annually). When the 90 days is over, do I apply back in Nevada or California? Will I receive the $400.00 again or will the amount be different based on my most current 90-day job. My residence an either be California or Nv, as I have a place to stay in either.

Got pages/file ui claim.htm. This is where you file on line. There is a place you can check for information on your unemployment balance,that gives you how much you had, how much you have been paid, when your last pmt. was made, & when you last filed.
Scroll down to bottom of 1st page and click on "I would like to file my claim". Next page scroll down to "I agree" and click on that. Follow the instructions that come up. Read every page carefully and click the appropriate box and you will find what you need.

My son was terminated from his job (one which he had for over 3 years). He appropriately applied for UI benefits and the adjudicator determined that the reason for his separation allowed for payment of benefits. However, his employer has NOW appealed the decision of the adjudicator and it is my understanding that a hearing before an impartial appeal referee is now pending. All this time now, since my son's termination almost 6 weeks ago, he has received NO UI payments... NONE. Will he continue to receive NO payments throughout this process? What if his employer continues in his efforts to disallow benefits, even if they are upheld by the referee, and my son's employer then appeals to the Employment Security Board of Review. What happens if the Employment Security Board of Review affirms my son's eligibility for UI benefits, but his employer then takes his case to court? Does my son still continue to draw NO UI benefits while this entire process plays out?

This situation has become very disconcerting and exasperating and I would certainly appreciate your reply. My son is devastated by what has happened to him these past six weeks and is distraught and mentally exhausted. I'm sure he would be asking these questions if his mental state was up to it.

Thank you in advance.

I am in California and working for a CA Corp who says i can move back home to Vegas and manage the accounting from home. I plan to move in the next 30 days but rumors at work is that we are going to be laid off mid-2012 and I tend to believe this based on the trends. Im curious if I will qualify for NV unemployment based on my new residency or if CA will have to pick it up even though I wont be there or paying CA taxes. Just want to cover my tracks in the event this actually happens.

I'm currently disqualified from unemployment benefits due to misconduct. It stated in my letter that I have to earn 145 for 10 weeks, OK so I get that part, I have a part time job and I'm just now about to hit my 10week mark and have 6 check stubs. But like 3 stubs are over the amount of 145 a week and the others are like 141, 139, 137 a week. I'm like off by a couple of dollars. Do you think that's fine? or do they really care about it being 145 a week? I did the math 145 times 10 is 1450, and the funny thing is I made that exact amount but problem is sometimes I earn a little less as mentioned above. Just would like to know before I send UI my stubs and they deny me again because I was short like 3-8 dollars in a week.. wow that would be a bummer..
Thanks for your help

However when I check the status of the previous weeks filed online they say that I am DQ. Is it just cause they didn't have proof of 10 weeks of work? & Does that mean I am still approved?

If you were receiving payments while on furlough you will continue to receive benefits. I you were working as well as receiving benefits you might want to save all the money you recieved while working because you will owe all that money back and may not be eligible now that you are laid off.

My first extension is about to run out. Do I have to go back online in Nevada to file for 2nd extension tier 2 and answer all questions, or does 2nd tier kick right in, and how will I find out if I'm eligible or not. Do I have to call or does computer tell you that? I have filled out 1st extension tier 1, but I called # in Nevada and they said I did not fill out questions, which is untrue, is there a confirmation # or message if I'm eligible or not.I'm confused on 2nd extension, do I go online or should I call after final payment, or do they mail me letter if I qualify for 2nd tier, because last payment is next week 12/13/11

I recently got laid off and though I was not sure if I was eligible or not I filed anyways, the worse that could happen would be no. Anyways the guy said he had to put me through a special claim due to my wages and said I would get two notices. The first would say I wasn't eligible the second would be the one I pay attention to. I also received a debit card already. Having actually received a debit card and being put through a special claim, is it safe to assume I will be receiving some unemployment? I got the first notice in the mail today and as the guy said it stated I was not eligible due to my wages. I am now waiting for the second notice and am incredibly nervous...

I lost a job in October, it was determined I was ineligible, I still filed my claim each week for the 10 weeks I was out of work. I was told I needed 10 weeks to 'become eligible' for that claim. What exactly does that mean? I've worked the required weeks and the required amount of money each week was earned. It's a temp job so there's always the risk of a lay off, what goes on if I get laid off? Would I receive the 10 weeks I claimed before I worked the required weeks, or would it just allow me to file a new claim? This seems to be very hard information to come across, I sent an email and basically got the same answer from the website, which doesn't really answer the question fully.

According to detr you may quit as a result of your health Problems and still receive unemployment. But you must first speak to your employer and be sure to let them know yOur exact situation so they may adjust it I they can. Talk to someone with some authority and make sure you document when where what time you explaIned yourself. If nothing is done within a respectable amoun of time you may quit. But keep documentation of this.

Please help...confused about my unemployment benefits.

Been collecting. 3 weeks ago, I was told payment was pending review bc I missed my REA Oriebtation due to a job interview I had out of state. I rescheduled but the soonest was not for 3 weeks (July 2nd). I was told to continue filing & I would have to speak with an adjudicator after my orientation to get paid for "that week." I received a payment my last weeks claim after a telephone rep filed for me. I thought everything would be fine. This week I filed online & it says HD still (but it did last week too), & no payment for this week. What could the problem be? Why would I not get paid for this week when I was paid last week? Is there anything I can do to speed this up or get them to fix this before speaking with an adjudicator. I have a family of 7 & technically homeless. Would going to the office help anything?

Hi, I hope you get this and will answer me. I have worked in my own businesses my whole life, and with the economy taking a dive, I lost everything. I was semi retired. At 48, I'm on a new journey... I found a job, worked for one month at Green Valley Ranch from 10/11 to 11/11. I was hired immediately from 12/16/11 to 6/18/12. They said I don't qualify!!! What? How can that be? That is seven months at my place of employment. I am appealing this stating I don't agree, and the terms of this are ludicrous. Can you tell me if an alternate base period or a loop hole I don't know about? If I have somekind of exception, I can push this through. I've heard where they actually have made exceptions under certain conditions. Thanks!!

# Mark H 2012-07-21 17:28
I requested an appeal because I was told I owed $3000+ back to NV because of the way I reported my income. Working for Dominos, its near impossible to guess accurately how much I would earn...clock out on a delivery and the payrate drops to $5.00/hr from Min. Wage. Dominos calculates an earned income credit based on tips reported and also makes an adjustment for mileage. I went through the appeal after going back and providing paystubs for every week. I under-estimated. The Referee says I know owe $8500 and was inelligle for benefits paid during 52 weeks. I can understand owing if by calculating what was reported was inaccurate but only when what was earned actually calculates and reduces what should have been dispersed to me. How is it fair that every dollar that was paid to me has to go back to the State? If a sliding scale was used to calculate a weekly benefit before dispersement why isn't it being applied now. This is so wrong. Ironically, I am still underemployed and eigible for food stamps. Can't afford to pay back with part time pizza job.

I am working in Az away from my family. The job was suppossed to be temporary but my company won't lay me off. I was told that if I quit, I will be denied unemployment while I find work in Las Vegas. Am I expected to just live away from my family forever? It feels like unemployment is making me sell my house and leave the state. How could this be? I feel like working out of state was the right thing to do but am being punished for trying. If this is the case, I will never work out of town again. I will just wait for work at home.

The website states the update has been completed and weekly claim submittals are being accepted as of Wednesday 9/4.
This is untrue as I got into the system at 6pm and the outgoing message did not provide a prompt to file a weekly claim and had not been updated as still offered Tuesday afternoon as being restored.
Question: if I am unable to file due to BOTH the phone and online claim systems being down, will I be able to file the weekly claim when restored so not to lose a week?
Comment: Maube it would have been a better option to update and troubleshoot ONE system and not both to allow weekly claims to go uninterrupted?

NOW I am trying to no avail to register on the new system. One attempt says my username is already being used (duh). Other attempts creating a new user name failed as well.

hi i have been layed off from work and have filed and recieved 5 weekly payment from nevada unemployment then i went to orientation at another job that didnt work out i reported my income and had to do a phone interview and now that a positive determination had been made i show that i have seven accrued payments to get deposited but a week later still no money in my account i spoke to a courteous lady that works there she said its a clerical error and i have to wait for them to figure it out and i feel like i have zero rights in this situation and now im coming close to eight weeks waiting to get paid all the while jumping through all their hoops looking for work and traveling to job connect but have nobody on my side to guide me through the proper procedures to make things happen
