What Can I Do If I Am Denied Benefits?

If you do not agree with your monetary determination, or if you disagree with a determination that you are ineligible/disqualified for benefits, you may request a hearing before a referee. You may submit a request for a hearing in person or by writing to your local office. Requests for Appeals must be filed in person or be postmarked within 10 days of the date of the Notice of Determination.

A hearing is usually scheduled within a few weeks after an appeal is filed. All parties will receive a Notice of Hearing, including the time, date, location and issues to be covered in the hearing.
