Can you reapply for unemployment?


Answer by  patti (29325)

You can file an claim for unemployment benefits more than once, depending on the time between claims. Unemployment benefits are provided by your employers, past and current. As those benefits are exhausted, benefits run out. If you have been denied unemployment after a hearing, you cannot file that case again.

Yes you can. Each filing is not continuous but treated as a seperate filing. However there is a cap on lifetime benefits and you need to have enough credits to qualify each time. Also you won't get any benefits if you voluntarily quit your job.

Due to the recent economic situation you are able to extend your unemployment ONCE. I suggest trying to find a job before this happens, as it can be hard.

Yes, you can always reapply, and you can always contest if you are refused. Your unemployment is based on a determined amount of work. This is usually available online at your unemployment office's site. You can usually file online. There are extended benefits now available due to the current crisis, call your agency and inquire.

If you were denied unemployment, you can appeal the decision if you do not agree with it. However, if your benefits have run out you can also file for an extension.
