Default Making an error on the UI claim form

Obviously my question is about the weekly or biweekly claim form that you send back to claim benefits.

If you make an error, say mark "Yes" and "No" or cross out your signature and resign it, or anything else I might be missing, what can you expect the unemployment office to do in return?

I'm thinking at most they will just send you a new claim form to fill out and send back. Anyone else know what they will do?

If you're in CA, they'll send you a duplicate claim form.

It depends on the nature of the error and whether it raises a "red flag" with an agent. If the error raises any suspicions, an agent can initiate an investigation and suspend payment of your benefits until the issue is resolved.

Well I meant something simple like the example I gave about crossing out your signature because you might have messed it up and resigned it. Surely something like this wouldn't necessarily raise a red flag would it?

However, you bring up an interesting point. What kind of error would raise a red flag?
