Hi...I called this number and got someone right away! Thank you so much to the person who posted this...I tried calling 201 601 4100, the 732 number etc...and I put in my number to call me back. When I finally got a call back, I would press "1" to confirm I was on the line, then the line would hang up....that happened 4 times to me since yesterday. Thank you again...now I dont have to have a nervous breakdown :)

I'm confused by the statement about 26 weeks of unemployment benefits in NJ -- when I filed my initial claim, it was approved for only 13 weeks of benefits. Those have almost run out now and I'm still unemployed. Can I reapply to get another 13 weeks, or is this really it for me?

Thanks for your help.

I taught at a private school in NJ 1977-2010, then moved to CA to get married in summer 2010 and started work at a school here. After 5 weeks, it became clear that the job was a "bad fit," and by mutual agreement with the employer I signed a letter of resignation and left. I still have my NJ drivers license and own a home there (though it will be sold in January). Can I receive NJ unemployment benefits? Can I receive CA unemployment benefits? Do I need to work 5 more weeks, and in what state? Would benefits be based on my (higher) base salary at my old school? Would the sale of my NJ house or switching to a CA drivers license change my status? Thank you!

# Jason 2010-11-16 20:09
I am now a florida resident who moved from New Jersey and was on an out of state claim. My first employer when I moved here laid me due to being unfit for the job. I was then disqualified from my benefits until unemployment spoke to my employer to verify I was laid off. I filed an appeal and participated in a phone call from the Appeal Tribunal in which the disqualificatio n was reversed in my favor. Unemployment sent me a letter stating I would be repaid for the weeks they held during my disqualificatio n period. This was back in April of 2010. It is now November and I have yet to see the checks I am owed. I call the unemployment customer service number for out of state claims 1888-795-6672 NUMEROUS times, and keep getting the run around. The poor customer service after waiting sometimes an hour just to speak to someone is beyond frusturating. I have called and faxed the same notice of determination letter OVER AND OVER. And they keep promising me the same answers. I have recieved poor attitudes and even was hung up on. I am tired of the run arounds. The last person I spoke to said that my claim is now in a adjustment unit. I dont understand why it needs to be adjusted when I faxed over a leter from the deputy of notice of determination that my decision was reversed in my favor. this has been going on for months! Nobody seems to want to help me and its causing anxiety. Could someone kindly help my situation? Please reply with an address or phone number to the correct office who handles these type of issues. My attorney will be sending a letter soon if I do not get a response. Thank you

I was laid off work on 11/5. I had worked with the same employer for 28 months, the last 8 of which were in FL, the rest in NJ. I have been trying to file a claim with NJ for 2 weeks straight, and because all of my work was NOT in NJ, I must do it via telephone. I've called at least 8 different numbers, over 5x per day, and always end up with the same recording "due to the high volume of calls, we can not take your call at this time". I am now not able to pay my rent because I've had no income for 7 weeks. Any suggestions??

I have tried to login to my account but am unable to find anything saying I was deniend benefits . I applied in febuary 2010. I am wondering if someone can re-email me or mail me a letter saying I was denied unemployment . I need to show this to my school. Can someone help me to obtain such a document?
SincerLY,

My husband filed for Unemployment in NJ. He definitely met all the qualifications. The issue is we haven't gotten any reply, letter, email, notice, etc. I'm trying to find what his next step is. How long does it take for someone to address the claim? If they haven't responded, what are possible reasons? Is there something we might have forgotten to do? Slightly confused! Help.

Do it online at www.njuifile.net today and you won't have to worry about the holiday. It will be in your account on Wed. or Thurs. The holiday messes that up, but you can claim online today, I just did. Anyone can claim online on sundays to get their money earlier.

Or if there's anything I can do besides just wait for an answer? Any advice or info would be appreciated...thank you.

Stephanie, this has gone on for too long. I would find out who your state legislator is and contact their office. Also, you might want to write a letter to Harold Wirths, Commissioner of the Department of Labor. You are not the only one who has problems with unemployment and people really need to complain. The squeaky wheel approach is unfortunately the only way through. I think there are so many people who are unemployed - there aren't enough state workers to handle the workload. Also I think that a lot of state workers are retiring because the Gov. is making changes to the pension system and the people who are left do not know what they are doing.

No, your seperation from work has to be due to work reasons, while your reasons are valid, they are personal and not related to the job. Depending on the size of your company you worked for you may be eligible for the family leave act.

I filed my unemployment claim for the week beginning July 3, 2011. I immediately received notification in the mail to claim benefits and when. I claimed them for over a month now but keep being told that I will receive credit but that they are not payable at this time. I live in NJ and I already received and activated my unemployment debit card from BoA. I had a phone interview on July 29, 2011 and I was asked to fax my pay stub which I did and it was confirmed. I was told the information would be put into the data system because it was unattainable from Newark Public Schools, NJ. The school I worked for closed down and I only worked 4 months but I made the minimum amount needed to file a claim. I was never denied but I was told they were backed up and that I would received a determination letter including a wbr if eligible. I was under the impression that I needed an alternate base period and that it would be no problem to do this. Still I am waiting almost six weeks. I cannot get through on the phone and I am not getting a response from the email of the person who conducted the telephone interview. What can I do to expedite this process? I was told if I included my drivers license number that it would expedite my claim but it has not. Someone please help me, we are in dire need of help! Thanks in advance...

I had phone interview 4 weeks after initial claim and was asked to fax my last paystub. I was also told information would be inputted and passed on to different department and that verification would also take place. About to claim my biweekly benefits for the third time and still nothing in the mail. How can I check my status, phones won't let me hold on, keep disconnecting talking about high volume of calls.

He gave me a non-working fax/fax whose memory is full. I don't want to fax to just any number since it has my ss# and address, etc. I've just faxed it to the Trenton fax#, but how can I be certain the requested documents they're asking of me is given to the appropriate person?

I was fired from my job and I applied for unemployment. Two times my former employer had asked for extentions on the hearings. When the second hearing came up they were unable to be reached by employment. I was awarded unemployment benefits at that time. After six weeks of being on unemployment, I started a new job. I stopped claiming benefits after I let unemployment know that I returned to work full time. Now six weeks later I recieved an appeal notice from the state. My hearing date is during the day and I can't call out of work for this since I just started and I work during the day. Why am I getting an appeal notice after I have already be granted benefits and have a new job already and are not claiming benefits anymore?

As background, I had been appealing an original decision to disqualify me for benefits all the way to the Board of Review level which took 22 weeks to get there. Each week for 22 weeks I filed on line without a problem. Once the case was remanded to the Board of Review I was unable to file benefits weekly via the Internet. When this happened I immediately contacted NJ unemployment and was told my case had entered a "different phase" hence my interpretation of that conversation was that it was impossible for me to continually file for benefits while the case was being reviewed by the Board of Review.

As luck would have it I won my case through the Board of Review but now NJ has disqualified me for benefits for everything after the 22 weeks because I did not file weekly on line or by calling. In my defense I contacted the state of NJ when I was unable to file on line, was told the case entered a "different phase" (which to me meant it fell outside the realm of the appeals tribunal), and was told I could seek anything I was owed after the case was decided at the Board of Review level. When I sought to claim the 64 total weeks of benefits , I was told I will only receive the 22 actual weeks filed on the Internet and that I could appeal in order to get the remaining 44 weeks.

What chances do I have of following every other thing asked of me (ie..being available to work, not refusing work, not attending school and continually seeking employment, etc.)for requirements to collect unemployment other than actually filing on line or via telephone??

I was receiving my unemployment benefits then I found a part time job because I just didn't want to sit around not doing anything. I took the job and still was collecting my benefits but turn out things didn't work out at the job....I was only there for three weeks. My supervisor was being dishonest to his boss about me because I started emailing his boss about him. They terminated me without me knowing. I have not received one write up or verbal warnings about my job performance. A lot of time people get disqualified from the phone appointment because city workers take the employers word. How can I present that I'm not in the wrong so I won't get disqualified?

Have finally heard from work after 2.5 weeks of silence and now my old position is gone and they may have another one, but they are not sure and said they would try to get back to me this week.

You should be eligible for unemployment as long as you have been released to return to work but your employer does not have a job for you. Just make sure that you fall within the 20 base weeks of work in the prior year or $7200 of earnings from when you file.

I filed in August 2011 and received info back that BASE YEAR was April 2010 to March 2011. They calculated 24 of my 36 weeks had the $147.00 weekly income. I received the Bank debit card.

I held a government working position.I am a single dad of an asthmatic 4 year old boy and an 11 year old girl. I owned up to stealing under 10 gallons of gas from work so i could get back and forth to work..i also said i would pay it back..my superviser said that it didnt look good that i could maintain my job after further review so she gave me option to resign or be fired.If i was to be fired i would never be able to work for the Federal Government again so she said it would be better to resign so that in future i may be able to work for Government again in future.So do you think being i resigned due to that circumstance will i get unemployment or be denied

I received a reply from the Board of Review on July 5th 2011 that they will review my case in challenging the Appeals decision that I did not have sufficient subsequent weeks of ten times my benefit rate to qualify for benefits. I still have not heard from the Board of Review.

I work at a state psychiatric hospital and was physically assaulted by a patient. I am seriously concerned for my safety and afraid to go back into that environment. My question is, would I be eligible for unemployment benefits if I left my job due to the unsafe environment and assault I just experienced? I am actively searching for new employment and am very concerned for my personal safety. I appreciate any help you may be able to give me.

Thanks

Under extenuating circumstances you should be able to collect. Being in an unsafe work environment is definitely detrimental to your mental and physical health and is a great reason to quit your job. I would go to a physician and professional counselor and be evaluated and accumulated to medical documentation to support your claim if you decide to quit your job and file.

Today, I went to file Continued Benefit online, but it told me that my claim is expired, and no benefits are available to me at this time. I have only been on it for a year and still on EUC Tier II. I can’t reach anyone at the Reemployment Call Center phone # they provided. Can you please tell me what to do? Please Help ASAP!

Keep calling until you reach a live person. Depending on the date that you filed unemployment, make sure you had the 20 weeks base or $7200 in the prior year. If you did not, that may be the reason why your claim has expired. Unfortunately you will have to go through the appeals process if that's the case.

I voluntary left a company I worked for for over 3 years to take on a new opportunity. I started that new job right away, making the same wages. Unfortunately the new company is already shutting down unexpectedly after I only worked there 3 weeks. Can I collect unemployment? If I file a claim in december they only go off June 2010- July 2011, does it matter that i wasnt with the new company yet?

I live in the state of NJ. I File Taxes in both NJ, NY. I Work both in NJ & NY. My NY Unemployment benefits have ended, but they automatically gave me an Extension. So I am currently collecting New York extended unemployment.
My Question is. I wanted to switch my unemployment to New Jersey. How can I make the switch without disrupting or confusing my current NY extend payments. NJ has a better rate than NY and that will help me so much more as well as I have the right to have file for NJ benefits.
Would someone be so kind to answer and explain what I need to do.
Thx Stan.

I would like to know an address, email or snailmail, where I can file a complaint. Because of an error on my part, my benefits were suspended; I had a phone hearing and according to the investigator I spoke with, my benefits would be restored with the exception of one week that would have to be decided upon by a review board (or some such entity). I specifically asked him if the weeks that were no longer in question would be paid, and he said that he would release them. After a week, I still hadn't received those funds, and I called UI; the person I spoke to reviewed my file, told me that the funds should have been released and that she would speak to the investigator and call me back. Of course, she didn't. Let me point out that up to this point, everyone I'd spoken to had been professional and courteous. When I didn't receive a call, I called them back again. The woman I spoke to at that time informed me that none of the funds would be released until a determination had been made and that the other two people I spoke with shouldn't have given me incorrect info. I can't say that she was as courteous as the other two people I spoke with, constantly interrupting me and talking over me - she seemed to have a really bad attitude. I'd like to complain about the conflicting information I've received, but I can't find an email or street address to send a complaint to.

You for a letter to the Appeal Board, the address should be on your Hearing letter. Yes you need a determination letter which would give you proof in writing what there findings and opinion was in your case. You also can go to your nearest office of unemployment and see an representative concerning your inquiry on your claim and what notations and codes are in the system (computer). Make sure from this point on you send all information by certified mail so you can keep records and if you go into the office write dates and whom you spoke with. I have been there & done that my case took 12 months from the telephone interview, appeal board then I didn't except their decision. So I appealed it with the Review Board and won. Be persistent and keep records. Good Luck.

For someone who owes money to unemployment and has payment arrangements to pay back. Question is when filing a new unemployment claim unemployment keeps the total allowed amt to pay towards the balance owed. Is there a way to appeal or apply so that benefits are paid to claimant and not kept to pay off balance due to unemploement?

Keep calling or put your number in for a call back. They do call back although they hang up on you when they do call back. However, if that happens the recorded message will call you back.

Will i receive a letter in the mail if i am approved or denied? Or do you only receive the money if approved and a letter if denied? Also how long will i be waiting now since a decision was made till I find out?

You will receive a letter stating when to start claiming your benefits if you are approved. If you are denied you will receive a denial letter and you may have to appeal the decision.

It's up to unemployment to make the decision on approving your unemployment not your employer. However your employer can try to sabotage your unemployment. If they try to just remain positive and hopeful that unemployment will still approve your claim, and pray for your employer that God touches their heart. Either way they will reap what they sow if you are rightfully due your unemployment and they just have bad ill attitude towards you. Good luck.

I have a claims examiner interview today but due to the hurricane I do not have power or telephone. I have been sitting on hold with the telephone number that was provided in the letter I received about the call. What can I expect, There is nothing on the web regarding what to do. I read if you fail to answer they will deny your unemployment to which it takes months to dispute. If I try to change the phone number to have them call me at, it takes a day for the system to upload and when I tried it wouldn't let me in the system because of this claims examiner interview.

I was hired as an full time employee, getting 35-40 hours every week. But now they have cut me and several other full time employees to working only 3 days a week 24-28 hours a week. My question is can i get unemployment to make up for the difference. I just moved to new jersey 9 months ago.

Will this effect my unemployment if I file over 40 hours for one week? When I file do I click "part-time" because both jobs were part-time hours and this week I'm scheduled for less than 32 hours? I have not yet filed for last week ending 3/9/13 until im sure how to do it the right way. Thanks.

I work for a private school. When they are off for spring break or summe. they told me thati am not eligible to apply for unemployment. I recently spoke with someone at a New Jersey unemployment agency and they said I was eligible. When they notified my employers that I had applied for unemployment they told me I need to cancel my application or I will be fired. They also told me that they fired my predecessor for the same reason. Is this legal?

I applied for NJ unemployment benefit since 9/30/12 and to date I have not received a dime from them. I contacted the office several times via phone, and all I get from them is that my account will be credited. Currently, the status of my application is pended. I am very upset with these folks. Its the very first time I have ever asked for unemployment benefits. I have worked for more than 28yrs without collecting a dime from any other source other than what I worked for.

I was currently on Extended Unemployment Benefits in NJ and after the one year was up they looked and saw that I had some employment in NY. I was then told that on Extended Benefits I would have to go collect the amount in NY. My Question is after the Regular collecting of the NY unemployment (approx. 6 months) will I be able to go back to NJ even if my claim is not up in NY? This is really upsetting because most of my employment is in NJ and I just happen to make enough to collect NY. The problem is the rate is so much less. Please Help.

Morris County Unemployment, Dover Office (973) 361-9057

Got someone on the phone immediatley to clear my "claim pended" issue in a matter of minutes. I believe they take lunch from 12-1 as I didnt have any luck getting thru until just after 1. Don't bother with the long hold times at the numbers provided by njuifile.net!!

The company I work is closing as of next friday. we are being payed out our time and a new company is taking over the following monday. If we choose not to be "hired" by the new company can we collect unemployment. Old boss said he would do all he could but did not really answer us.

I recently got fired from my job and I am being offered a temporary position at another job due to "busy season". They informed me that I will only be working for a month or two. Once they lay me off, will I be entitled to collect unemployment from the job that fired me since I worked there for almost 2 years? Or should I just file for unemployment and not take this temporary job?

I just started collecting UIB in NJ. I may receive a commission of several thousand dollars in the next several months if a loan I submitted closes. When I report this income (we'll call it 3,000) do I loose benefits for the week I earned/received this income, or will I loose benefits equaling the income amount?

I had my telephone interview on 7/18/13- I was told by the examiner that I would have an answer as to whether my claim was denied in 48 hours. I have not received a letter denying me benefits as of 8/7/12 which is exactly 14 days from the interview. My last day of work was May 24th & I filed for unemployment benefits on 6/2/12. The status of my claim continues to say pended. I called yesterday and was told that a determination has yet to be made. Is there a law that requires unemployment to get back to the employee in a certain amount of days. Is there anyone that I can speak to that governs the unemployment division. I am frustrated and in serious debt because of the lack of response. Please someone help!

I came to Germany with the USA ARMY in 1993. I've separated from the ARMY in 1998 and started working with an American Company as a contractor for the USA Government. I am thinking to repatriate back to New Jersey. Will I qualify to collect unemployment until I find a job?

I had my claims review yesterday and was told i would receive a letter on my status in 10 days. I was told to continue to claim in the meantime..: has this happened to anyone? Does this mean I have been denied? Are they allowed to tell you by phone after your interview if you are approved or do u have to wait for the letter to know is you've been denied or accepted
