Eligible for Unemployment Compensation? Waiting for my first payment…?
I filed for UC three weeks ago in PA. Will I get a definite confirmation in the mail telling me if I get benefits or not? Or will they just not tell me? I have financial eligibility letter. And I’ve done my first and second bi-weekly claim online. I haven’t recieved my first payment yet…Would the tell me if something is wrong with my claim?
The letter said I would get 501 a week.
The letter is from the state. UC-44F (financial eligibility). And UC-360(claim confirmation letter).
I did receive a debit card a week ago. I’m monitoring it online. Nothing yet after three weeks since I filed.
I see that you already filed your claims. The problem might be that they put the money on a debit card for you. I don’t think they send checks anymore. They send you a debit card and the money goes on that when it is time for them to pay you.
My previous answer:
No they just pay you. If you got the financial letter eligibility From the PA UC (not your employer) stating how much you will get per week, that means you are in the clear to receive UC. However, you do have to file a claim every 2 weeks either online or over the phone. All the info about this is in the packet PA UC sent you in the mail. And remember, there is a one waiting week where you don’t get money, so your first pay will contain only one week’s worth of money – not two. Please understand that not only do you have to file for benefits, in order to get the money you have to file a claim every 2 weeks. Who is this finanaical elebibility letter from – PA UC or your employer? I just want to make it clear that you have to contact PA UC after a lay off or whatever. YOu don’t let your former employer start the ball rolling for you. You start it.
Unemployment compensation in Florida…?
I filed for unemployment this year, May 2010. When I got my first notice in the mail saying that I was eligible, it also noted that my benefits would run out May 2011, in one year. I checked the mail last night and I got a notice from the unemployment office saying that $25 will not be paid for every week claimed after December 11th. So I understood this as receiving $100 less each month which means I’d be getting $764 instead of $864. So I called the unemployment office to figure out what exactly was going to happen. The lady I spoke to told me that instead of receiving $432 every two weeks, I’ll start receiving only $388 — $44 less. So that totals out to $88 less a month. I never got a straight answer from her about the letter in the mail saying I will not be paid $25 every week that I claim for unemployment. In fact, I never understand a damn word they say to me anyway. All of this government bullshiz. Then, on top of this confusion, she tells me my unemployment will run out in 11 weeks, which means it’ll end February 5th, according to her. I asked why it wasn’t going to end in May 2011 like my first notice said. She said that “it seems like it would end in one year, but it doesn’t.” I don’t understand any of this at all. I feel like I’m being cheated. So now instead of having 6 months left to find a job, I have 3 months. I just don’t get it. I’ve been looking for jobs, even had 4 or 5 interviews in the first few months, but I was never called back. And I’ve refused some jobs because they were only part-time or temporary. I’ve been looking for work ever since May of this year and I still haven’t found anything. So now I’m even more worried that my 6 months has turned to 3 months.
Can someone possibly explain to me how unemployment in Florida works? Am I not entitled to a FULL YEAR worth of benefits? I wouldn’t doubt if I’m being screwed over and being given the run around… I’m talking about the government here. If anyone can enlighten me, it’ll be appreciated.
That’s not much of a contribution from Top Contributor. Anyway, I did call them. They said taking away the $44 every week has something to do with taxes. I don’t know. But I don’t understand why they say unemployment last for a year when I’m only getting it for 9 months. Then if I’m still jobless by February 5th, I’m screwed until May 1st which is when I can apply for unemployment again… I think. Your answer was useless.
Call them and ask
workman’s compensation faq?
A co-worker of mine recently aggravated her back while at work. She had mentioned to me that her back hurt before but getting off the forklift at work really aggravated it. Since she wasn’t sure where the initial event took place, she just filled this under her regular insurance rather than filling a claim with WC. She honestly thought it was a non-work related injury. Well, her insurance company sent her a letter asking if this occurred during work which apparently started a fire storm. Our company is now making her file a WC claim. The injury happened about 2 weeks prior to the WC claim beings filed
The question being is that if WC comes back denying her claim due to either the unsureness of where the injury occurred or the latency of the filling, could her private insurance also come back and deny her coverage for the treatments she has already received and going forward? That’s my biggest concern in that my company forcing her to file a WC claim might put her into a situation where all the medical expenses becomes her own liability.
Thanks in advance for the responses.
Well, they could – but they likely won’t. All you need is the denial letter from the WC carrier, and then they’re “on the hook” for the benefits.
The company HAS to have her file the WC claim – she told her doctor – or someone – that it happened at work. Legally, her employer HAS to notify the DOL and workers comp carrier, or they can get fined.
