North Carolina Unemployment

North Carolina State Seal

Do I qualify for unemployment benefits?

You are not eligible for unemployment insurance benefits for any full week covered by separation pay, vacation pay, etc. (nor may such a week count as your waiting period week ). Generally, you should file your claim the first week after the period covered by the payment (if the last week of the payment is not a full weeks pay, you may file that same week, although you may still be ineligible due to excessive earnings). IMPORTANT EXCEPTION: Individuals receiving severance pay are considered to be unemployed (and, therefore, may file a claim) during any week that they are registered at or attending an institution of higher learning, a secondary school or an approved training program. You must provide documentation of your school attendance/registration, and you must meet unemployment insurance availability for work requirements.

Base Period

Base period is the term used to define the time frame used as the basis for determining whether or not you will be monetarily eligible for unemployment. It is normally the first four of the last five calendar quarters. You must have wages in two of the base period quarters to be monetarily eligible. Your weekly benefit amount and the number of weeks of entitlement to benefits are based on the wages you were paid and amount of time you worked during your base period. The exact amount of benefits and the duration of those benefits cannot be determined until you actually file your claim for benefits.

Eligibility Requirements

Potentially eligible claimants must have become unemployed through no fault of their own. All claimants, except those who are still attached to an employer's payroll, must (a) register for work with ESC; (b) file a claim for each calendar week of benefits they request, and (c) actively seek work during any week for which unemployment benefits are claimed. Actively seeking work means doing those things that an unemployed person who wants to work would normally do. Unless otherwise instructed, a claimant must seek work in person on two different days with at least two different employers and must keep a written record of all work search contacts for periodic review by ESC.

Waiting Period

The waiting period week is the first week you file for and are otherwise eligible. You will never receive payment for this first week. It must be claimed to be counted. It does not mean you should wait a week before you file the claim.

Tips for Successfully Filing Your Claim

Be prepared! Before you begin, be sure to have on hand dates and rate of pay for last employment. Other information which may apply to you includes dates of military service and alien registration number if you are not a citizen of the United States.

  • This process may require 30 minutes or more. Before starting, please be sure that you have enough time to complete the process during the above hours.
  • You can save your work and return to complete the process later by choosing Save Work Exit. To prevent loss of data due to the service timing-out, it is recommended you Save Work Exit if your online session exceeds 15 minutes.
  • If you have previously registered with ESC, information such as address, telephone number, etc. will already be displayed. Be sure to update or make corrections to the data by simply editing the fields as needed.
  • You will be able to provide an e-mail address if you so desire. An e-mail address is not required, but will enable ESC to send you a successful filing message with additional tips and links.

Along with filing your claim, you will automatically be registered for referral to job openings which employers list with ESC. The online Dictionary of Occupational Titles is used for selecting the best occupational classification for your job experience and training. Due to limitations of this dictionary, you may not be able to find a classification which perfectly matches your background. In these cases, select the classification which most closely matches. Regardless of the classification you select, after registering you are encouraged to do your own search through ESCs online job bank.

If the employer's name and other contact information is displayed, contact the employer directly to apply for the job.

You may be contacted by an ESC consultant from one of our offices for job referrals or to offer other services.

Your request for Job Search assistance will be reviewed by a local office serving your area. All Job Search Assistance requests will be processed within three business days. Many Employers require ESC to conduct screening of all applicants for positions with their business. If your qualifications and work history place you among those applicants who are most qualified, you will be contacted with further information on applying for employment with this employer. If it is determined that you are not among the most qualified, your record will remain active, but you will not be contacted with application instructions for this particular position.

Job referrals also may be requested by telephoning or visiting any Employment Security Commission office.

You may contact the ESC office assigned to assist you for questions or additional assistance. When you request Job Search Assistance over the Internet, you will be presented with a confirmation page that provides the Job Order Number for which you have requested referral as well as the following information regarding the ESC office that will be processing your request:

  • Office Name
  • Email Address
  • Physical Address
  • Telephone Number
  • Hours of Operation

You may find this same information for other ESC offices by clicking on www.ncesc.com/locator/locatorMain.asp

At the end of this filing process, a message will be displayed signifying completion of the information-gathering process. Pay careful attention to the final instructions, including when and how to contact your ESC office, requirements for documenting your work search, and methods for filing your weekly certifications.

It's my understanding that if you are recieving a severance from your former employer, if you take continuing education classes to improve your job skills you will be able to collect full unemplyment benefits while receiving your severance. Is that still the case?

This is a new one to me, but after some checking I think that this is indeed the case.

My references are:

1. "Claimants who are enrolled in Approved Commission Training may be exempted from these work search requirements." Source: NC Unemployment Website. Link: www.ncesc1.com/individual/UI/UiClaims2.asp

2. "Actually, the rule is you may be eligible to receive benefits while receiving severance if, and only if, you're enrolled in a class through a college or university (accredited) and can show proof of enrollment." - Source: Post by Jdljr, who is a NC unemployment counselor. Link: www.city-data.com/forum/north-carolina/534500-unemployment-benefits-nc-6.html

My suggestion is to double-check with your unemployment counselor just to be sure.

Here's how you file an appeal, according to the official NC unemployment website:

"You can file an appeal to the first and second level decision in person at your local ESC office, via mail to ESC, attn.:Appeals Department, PO Box 25903, Raleigh, NC27611 or by email to esc.public.appeals@ncmail.net. Appeals to Commission decisions must be filed via a petition for judicial review the Clerk of the Superior Court. The Commission must be served with copy of such petition."

my employer told me today that I must sign a resignation letter dated 11:59 pm today, and they will rehire me at midnight, but it may be for a location 1-2 hours drive from here. If I sign this first letter and cannot commute and they don't move me, it would be my fault and therefore I would not qualify for unemployment, correct? If I refuse to sign the first letter, and they fire me for not signing, I would qualify, is that correct? I have been with this company for years.

Tammy,

This sounds shady.... You should not resign from you job because they ask you to - unless you want to quit. If you want to keep your job, and keep working for this company - they can just transfer you.

If they have 'told' you that they are going to rehire you, then they shouldn't have a problem with putting it in writing.

I would suggest that you do not sign the resignation letter, unless they include a statement in that same letter that they will hire you back - *at a location that is convenient to you*. The letter should specifically state the name and location at which you will be hired back.

To further answer your questions - If you sign the resignation letter - you are quitting your job, which in most cases will disqualify you from collecting unemployment.

If you refuse to sign the letter, and they fire you -- it is a possibility that you may still not qualify for unemployment - all because you got fired. I am not an employment lawyer, and this is a pretty specialized case here.

Just because you are fired does not automatically disqualify you for collecting unemployment. Generally you have to be fired for 'cause' or fired for a good reason -- insubordination , late, failed drug test, etc. Getting fired for refusing to sign a resignation letter -- that's a new one. My guess is that you would still be able to collect unemployment, but it may be a more involved process for you - such as having to go through appeals, etc. If your employer decides to make up some other reason why they fired you, other than refusing to sign the resignation letter - that could mess you up too.

My advice is to either:

1. Ask that they put in writing that they will hire you back at midnight, and at a specific location that is convenient to you (the letter should include the address) - and if they do that, then you'll sign the resignation letter.

OR

2. Refuse to sign the letter - and ask them to simply transfer you to the other location instead. It all sounds kind of shady anyway - them getting you to 'resign' and get immediately hired back. Perhaps they are trying to game the new government tax credits that are available to businesses for hiring new employees.

Good luck, and let us know how it turns out.

esc.public.appeals@ncmail.net is an email address, not a website.

If you go to this page: www.ncesc1.com/individual/faqs/faqMain.asp

and scroll down to where it says 'How do I file an appeal?' this email address is listed as one of the ways that you can file an appeal.

You can also send your appeal via US Postal mail to:

ESC
attn.:Appeals Department
PO Box 25903

I received a booklet and letter of confirmation with a pin number. Have I been approved? I'm confused because I received another letter of financial eligibilty saying ineligible on the same day but the form only listed on job which was my Macy's job. However, I worked for two employers part-time. I was not laid of my Macy's and I never stated that. However, I do have a seasonable lay-off from my other company. I worked for that company for say about six months. I worked for Macy's in total for 16 base weeks that includes March 2010 until 9/2010. If I have a pin number do I start calling and does that mean I'm approved. What's going on?

I understand that I can still draw unemployment and SSI at the same time, but will I draw reduced unemployment? And do I indicate on my weekly certification when I start drawing SSI?

I went through the adjudication dept. and it took months, but make sure you send in your husband's military orders and make sure YOUR name is stated under the spouse/dependents' section, along with your new duty station. It was a hell of a lot of work, but it was worth it, as now I've got the benefits I deserve. Especially if you are moving to Ohio -- OMG there are no full time jobs here for teachers. I've been looking for nearly a year and all I can do is work part time waiting tables.

My employer faxed form 500AB on July 15th AND again on July 20th (the deadline supposedly was 6/24). My claim was already in the adjudication process however when the ESC received the 500AB the 2nd time, she re-opened a claim, starting the process ALL over again.
On Friday July 22nd, the CSR asked that my claim be expedited. As of today, no adjudicator has reviewed my claim.

Because I was in school, I did not make enough money during the "base period" to qualify; however, I don't have financial aid anymore and I am left completely broke. Is there something I can do to be eligible given my full-time student status?

# KC.B 2011-09-04 14:28
I was employed for over three years, with nearly two and a half years of that as a dog groomer, with a major company. I have been injured numerous times (probably six or seven trips to the hospital/urgent care), and never received workers compensation, always had to use sick time/vacation time to cover the days I had to miss on doctor's orders. This last time, I was bit repeatedly in front of coworkers, and while still being attacked, returned the dog to it's kennel. I was rough, but I was panicked. No one bothered to see how I was doing, but the dog was sent to the vet, and it was completely uninjured. I had to go to the hospital again. I was sure they were going to terminate me, and they did on my next scheduled day. My manager said she knew I was only reacting to my injury, but having to deal with dogs on a daily basis they felt it was better for everyone to 'let me go.' I'm concerned they are going to tell unemployment I was absent excessively, but nearly all of those 'absences' were due to injuries sustained at work. I'm looking into legal action, but in the meantime I really need unemployment benefits, I've been paying off student loans and have absolutely no savings. I was hoping you could give me insight into whether or not I am eligible, the likelihood that they will try to fight giving me benefits, what I should do if they do deny me, and if there are other ways for me to collect money during this time (I always get a large refund from federal, can I access some of those funds?). Thank you so much for your help!

My wife was recently dismissed from work for a task that occured over 3 months prior to the dismissal. The task was re-assigned to another employee. My wife even volunteered to continue to assist in performing that task to help the company catch up. The employer said no. The employer gets monthly reports and knew about these events at the time, but chose to wait until after the 'busy season' (summer) to dismiss my wife 3 months later. After the busy season was over, the employer brought up these old charges and used them as evidence for termination.

The employer claims my wife was fired for these previous events, so ESC sent a letter saying unemployment benefits were revoked. These events seem more like a lay off. While many employees are seasonal, my wife was not one of the seasonal employees. She had been working for this company for 2 years.

What course of action would you recommend? I have 10 days (7 days now) to file an appeal, but I would prefer not to go to court. Does the appeal hearing even consider this kind of timeline for ascertaining 'at fault' so my wife can claim benefits until she finds another job?

Hello. My husband works for a company who has lost it's contract. They have NOT sent out any WARN letters, however there are fewer than 50 employee's. His company is working (not so diligently) to place him in another position. They have not sent an HR person out to speak with him and the other employees about the loss of the contract and what that will mean to them, what to expect, what steps to take, and so forth. I am concerned that they will wait until the very last day to inform their employees. I am also worried that they will offer him a position considerably lower than his current position. What steps can he take to protect himself if he does have to file for unemployement?

I have been on unemployment and I have been offered a part time job that will not pay me what I was making when I was laid off. Do I Qualify on any type of thing like under-employment until they can offer me closer to full time hours

# Answer 2012-02-29 21:50
Yes, you can. If you worked full time for 20 consecutive weeks and you are only able to work part time now, you may qualify for benefits. Contact your local agency.

I filed for unemployment Nov. 13 of 2011 I was informed I would receive it and to begin filing online starting that Sunday. Since then I have filed weekly and not received any pay, I call every other day only to be told if themoney has not hit in 48 hours then to call back. I worked from May to November and I also get weekly letters one stating I have sufficient wages and then another claimingmy baseperiod is off. When.I speak with them they swear its on a supervisors desk. I am at a loss on what to do or whom to talk to. Thanks for any advice

# Answer 2012-02-29 21:43
Your base period is off. You have to work 20 consecutive weeks to claim benefits. The amount of benefits is based on the 4 previous quarters of employment. You are more than likely not eligible for benefits.

my husband is having a lot of trouble with his work where they are threatning everyone saying they will get fired for doing re-works where they go on a job more than once in 30 days, well they give out very little equiptment and the equiptment they give them doesn't support their new stuff...even the manager said this company give you a bowl of crap and you have to turn it into gold and there is nothing we can do, but if you don't find a way to magically turn it into gold you will be fired... he is worried being that we have a baby on the way that if he gets fired for this (being that he has no control over it) that unemployment will not cover him until he can find new work (as he is looking now just in case)... help what will happen?? will ESC disqualify him from getting unemployment?

It is imperative that he stays with that company until he gets laid off or fired. As long as he is showing to work on time and doing the job according to his job description, he will get benefits when his employment is terminated.

I have been working remotely from home in Fairfax, VA and was recently let go due to budget cuts. Although my employer is in Raleigh, N.C. my checks come from N.C. and I pay NC state taxes. With what agency would I file my unemployment claim with? NC or VA?
Reply | Reply with quote | Quote
 
 
# Answer 2012-02-29 21:33
You would first need to file locally in VA. You can actually file in both states legally. You will need to contact your VA office and NC office. It is called an interstate claim.
If VA does not allow you to claim both states for some reason, your best bet would be to see which state would pay the most benefits. NC is one of the higher paying states.

I am currently on FMLA and there is a possibility that I will not be able to return to work at the end of my FMLA leave and then I will have to take "general leave' for up to an additional 12 weeks. 1) Do I qualify for benefits while I am on general leave since I will not be able to get short term disability any longer? 2) What if I am unable to meet the physical requirements of my job any longer and can't go back to work? Would I qualify for benefits then? 3) If I can't be released to go back to work, is that something I need to "step down" because of, or is that "cause" enough to be fired?
Reply | Reply with quote | Quote
 
 
# Answer 2012-02-29 21:27
1) You can collect on general leave as long as it was a requirement for you to leave and as long as you are not collecting any other income over your proposed UI benefits amount.
2) You would be able to draw and exhaust the UI benefits as long as they are within the first answer guidelines.
3) You will need to be released from your company in order to draw any benefits. You can not voluntarily leave and draw UI benefits.

Unemployment is based on the total number of quarters you worked. You must work a consecutive 20 weeks in order to receive any benefits to start with. Your benefit amount is reflected completely on 4 previous quarters not including the quarter you are currently within.

I will be extremely surprised if you qualify for benefits if you go into the court proceedings with any complaint of other workers tardiness and try to prove you being singled out. You have a better chance to get benefits with a reason as to why you were tardy.

Last year my company reduced my work hours (due to lack of work) to part time status and I was able to qualify for unemployment. Each week I enter the amount that I was paid by my employer the previous week but last week I accidentallly entered the wrong amount (by about $50). What should I do to get this fixed? Someone mentioned that I could just add that to my income for the next week, but I want to make sure this is legal.

Thanks

I had to quit my job back in july because i had to move to complete an internship that would fulfill my Criminal Justice requirements for my bachelor's degree at a university. I filed for unemployment and was denied. I thought that because i was going to complete my degree (going to higher job training even though it was not related to the job i was working) that i would receive benefits. the denial letter states that i was disqualified due to the fact that i voluntarily quit my job.

If you quit a job due to medical issues you can collect. If you informed your employer about trouble performing your job, and they do not provide you reasonable accomadations, you can quit, and collect. This is why they have an americans with disabilities act.

I have been getting benefits for one year. today I got a letter saying i was eligible for tier 2 EUC. also today I got a letter stating i was ineligible for EUC benefits. I also got 2 letters today stating that I havent worked the 20 weeks last year to receive the EUC benefits. Weird, duh, i have been unemployed. Also, today i get a tax form and direct deposit form for my EUC.

I am really confused here. All of these contradictory letters today. I looked at my account on the web and it seems to have lost all of my previous payment history and shows no new eligible payments, yet says i am eligible.

Any thoughts???? of course its after 4:30 and too late to call today, rent is due this coming Monday.

I am active duty military, leaving the state in September. But I am picking up a part time job to help save money for when I leave the service. I am planning on leaving the state as soon as I get out so I can attend college in Florida.

Will I be eligible for unemployment if I quit my part time job before I separate from active duty? Or does it matter at all? I am worried that the extra $2000 this part time job will give me will not allow me to receive the thousands in unemployment I will need to carry me through to the spring semester.

Also, will I still be able to pull unemployment benefits when I am in school with the Post 9/11 GI Bill?

My Department is relocating to another state. The company has offered us a severance package or to go back to a lower position but keep the same pay. We have yet to see in writing what the severance package will be and they keep giving us conflicting information. Would we qualify for unemployment benefits while getting severance pay if we enroll in school?

My husband and I planned on moving out of the area (4 hours away). My husband had found employment there; therefore, I gave my resignation at my current job, effective April 30, 2012, because we planned to move on May 1, 2012. The job that my husband had set up for him in the other location fell through. Once that happened and we weighed our options and we decided tostay at our current location; therefore I submitted a letter to withdraw my resignation. So far my company has not accepted my withdraw and they have posted my position. My question is, if they do not accept my withdraw, am I eligible for unemployment?

I asked to have my seat moved and also asked management for a transfer to another building. The violent work place caused me to have two miscarriages in a 6 month period.

Hello, I started filing almost 8 weeks ago, I have heard nothing. I go to the office once a week and I am told all the paperwork is in but I need to wait my turn. This past Monday I went in and the lady told me it was in the notes for someone to call me within 3 days, but wouldn't tell me what it was regarding. I have kept my phone by my side and have heard nothing. I called back today and the lady I spoke with said there were no such notes in the the system. I'm applying everywhere but I have had no luck. I have a wife and two kids. My wife works but doesn't make enough to cover everything and she's attending grad school. I have never been without a job since I started working 15 years ago. We will lose our home soon if I don't find a job or start receiving benefits. Does anyone have any advice or do I just have to wait? Is this normal to wait so long? I was fired while recovering from back surgery which was necesary for me to continue to be able to work. I was told I filled out the wrong paperwork (FMLA instead of Short term) and because of it I was considered absent during my recovery.

Hi, there was a lay off in my dept. in may, we were told we would be getting severance in a lump sum and to wait until we received severance to file a claim and start recording job searches..is that correct? I hope so, I haven't received severance, its not much but should be coming in the next week, so I haven't filed a claim, the severance amount given could change depending on time taken off that had not yet been recorded, but I've been "looking" for jobs and did apply for one.
Also, I am older and not qualified for alot of jobs. I might have to move to a different state to stay with somebody because I cannot afford to live in nc if I cannot find a job, cannot find an apt. without employment, and cannot even afford to be roommates with somebody while going to school to get qualified for another job because of the cobra being almost $700.If this should happen, how do I collect unemployment while looking for work in the state I would be moving to? If there's any way...an answer to both questions would be appreciated. I get different answers from unemployment and I am literally..a dead stick with no hope. Thank you

I believe This information regarding NC eligibility as it pertains to students and severance is outdated and incorrect. The older forms NCUI517Z did have it listed as "IMPORTANT EXCEPTION: Individuals receiving severance pay are considered to be unemployed (and, therefore, may file a claim) during any week that they are registered at or attending an institution of higher learning, a secondary school or an approved training program". In later documents as of Feb 2012, this has phrasing has been omitted". This is the link to the latest document "http://www.ncesc1.com/individual/downloads/NCUI517z.pdf: It appears that being a student no longer allows you to receive benefits when a severance package is in place and not yet exhausted as per guidelines.

We live near Charlotte, NC, but live in SC. My husband just filed for NC unemployment. We have a couple of issues. First, we just discovered that an employer he worked for over 5 years was reporting his wages to SC instead of NC where they are located and where he physically worked. Here is what his NC determination said:

-You are not monetarily eligible on NC wages alone

-After combining the wages from NC and SC, you are monetarily eligible to receive $384 per week up to $9,984 in NC.

-You are also monetarily eligible to receive a weekly benefit of $326 with a max of $6,520 in SC alone.

Please contact your local ESC with your decision to either continue this combine wage claim or to file an interstate claim.

If you fail to respond within 10 days we will assume you wish to continue the combined wage claim in NC.

Questions:
Obviously, we want the higher amount, which is NC. What we can't figure out is can he get benefits from both states at the same time? Or is it either NC or SC?

Also, NC max unemployment is much higher than the $384 that the letter says he qualifies for. However, if his NC job had reported to NC instead of SC, his NC wages would be
4th qtr 2011 $9,992
1st qtr 2012 $7,273
2nd qtr 2012 $9,581
3rd qtr 2012 $9,046

If I calculated correctly, his weekly rate should be about $460, not $384. Is that because SC is lower and it is a "combined wage claim."

Thanks!

My brother gets the gi bill and so far has been successfully collecting unemployment. When he did his weekly certification it asked if he was going to school and if he would be willing to forgo school if he got a job.
We clicked on yes he goes to school (we didnt want to lie), he only goes a few hours a day. And that he was not willing to forgo, but he was willing to rearrange his schedule to accommodate work. The online system said this raised eligibility questions and for him to call.
Has this happened to anyone on the GI bill? School hours don't limit him getting a job, and from all I have researched he is okay to collect unemployment and the GI bill being a former marine.
I am worried that they will take his unemployment away.

Most states require people to take job offers if reasonable wages are offered. What are "reasonable" in NC?

Furthermore, does it take into account added costs for moving, cost of living etc, if the job is in another state?

I guess I am considered a seasonal worker and my last day of employment was May 17, don't come back to work until Sept. 3. My employer told us that our job is considered temporary that nothing is permanant. My question is why am I not able to get unemployment although I do look for work but no one will hire me. That is a aweful long time to go without a paycheck. ****Another thing some within our organization can get unemployment but not the teachers!!! Is there a certain amount of weeks before someone can draw?
