If your address has changed, your call will then be transferred to an agent to process your change of address or you will hear a message with further instructions.
If your new address is outside of the area serviced by your assigned office, you may be scheduled for an interview to determine if you were available for work during your move.
If you and your employer contributed to the pension, 50% of your weekly pension amount will be subtracted from your unemployment benefits.
If your employer contributed the entire cost of your pension, your unemployment benefits will be reduced by 100% of your weekly pension amount. Should I wait until my severance pay ends to file a claim? No, because some severance/separation payments do not extend employment.
If you move to a neighboring locality in New York, Pennsylvania or Delaware (within commuting distance of New Jersey), you may change your address by telephoning a New Jersey Reemployment Call Center at the regular telephone numbers. You are required to call the telephone number on the hearing notice to register your participation in the hearing no later than PM the business day prior to your scheduled hearing. If you believe your claim should be backdated, mention it to the agent when you file your claim by telephone. If you are employed full-time, you cannot file an unemployment claim.
If you are not claiming benefits, but you move within two (2) years from the date of your claim, you must still notify the agency of your address change. If you file your claim via the Internet, you may request your claim be backdated by calling the Reemployment Call Centers (RCC) at: Union City RCC (201) 601-4100, Freehold RCC (732) 761-2020 or Cumberland RCC (856) 507-2340. I am going to be laid off next week; can I file my unemployment claim now so my claim is ready? Claims filed before separation from employment are not valid because you are considered to be "Employed Full-time." You cannot file an unemployment claim until you become unemployed or partially unemployed. Does my Pension or Social Security affect my claim? Social Security Retirement benefits do not affect your unemployment benefits.
Individual and recurring payments are also available. You can also enter your formal monthly agreement amount at our E-payment site at https://www1.us/TYTR_LBR_Claims/jsp/ What should I do if I forget to claim my benefits on the assigned day? If you miss your assigned date, you should claim your benefits on the Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday immediately following your assigned date.
You should claim your benefits during the week in which your assigned date occurs or benefits could be delayed or denied. How long does it take after I claim my benefits by using the telephone or the Internet to receive a payment to my direct deposit account or prepaid debit card? If you are entitled to a benefit payment, it will be posted to your direct deposit account or prepaid debit card within 48 hours after you claim your benefits by using the Internet or the telephone.
You may file your claim by calling the New Jersey claims office that handles out-of-state claims at 1-888-795-6672. Requests to reopen can be emailed to [email protected], faxed to (609) 292-2438, or mailed to PO Box 936, Trenton, NJ 08625-0936. Should I claim my weekly unemployment benefits if I am appealing the determination I received? If it is determined that you are eligible or if you win your appeal, you will be paid these benefits at a later date. The time you have to wait will depend on the Appeal Tribunal backlog. The Appeal Tribunal will not have your address change if you just notify the Division of Unemployment Insurance. Can I claim back weeks if I did not immediately file a claim when I became unemployed? To be eligible for benefits, you must file a claim.
You may be eligible for benefits if you are on a temporary layoff from your employer with a definite return-to-work date. Will I still receive benefits if my employer files an appeal of my unemployment claim? If you were determined eligible for benefits, you will continue to receive your benefits as long as you meet all other requirements.
If the decision is in favor of the employer, you may be required to repay all or part of the unemployment insurance benefits that have been paid to you. Do I have to accept a job that pays less than I used to earn? While you are collecting unemployment benefits, you are expected to accept suitable work when it is offered or you could be denied benefits for four weeks.
For example, if you certify over the Internet on Sunday, you will receive your benefits by Tuesday. How can I find out the balance of my UI claim and the tax amount that was withheld year to date without calling the Reemployment Call Center? If you certified for your benefits online at gov/labor/ui you will receive a confirmation screen after the payment process.
The confirmation screen provides the gross and net amount of your payment, the amount deducted for any refunds or garnishments, tax withheld on your payment, and tax withheld year to date.
