What Happens Once I File A Claim?

After you file your new claim, you will be mailed Form NCUI 550, Wage Transcript and Monetary Determination. This form shows the employer(s) for whom you worked during the base period applicable to your claim, and the amount of wages they paid you during each quarter. It also shows the weekly amount payable to you and the number of weeks payable. If you are ineligible for unemployment insurance benefits, the form will explain the reason(s) why. If any of the information on this form is incorrect or, if any of your employers during this time period are not listed on the form, you should report to your local Employment Security Commission office within 15 days from the date this determination was mailed to you.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
