I was terminated from my job on 01/14/2014 for "not being a good fit for the position" (I was being bullied/harassed by my team leader, and it affected my job performance--I did notify management but nothing helped. I also was never written-up nor did I sign anything). I was within my first 90 days on the job. My manager did tell me that I am eligible to file for unemployment. I filed my unemployment claim right away. I received multiple notices from the dept. of labor. I received a notice letting me know the amount of my weekly benefit rate. I received notification that I was scheduled for a non-monetary claims examiner interview on 01/31 stating that "You may have quit your job..." (I had quit my previous job to start the job I was just terminated from--which was straightened out with the claims examiner). The 3rd document I received was when I could claim my benefits.

I was informed that I would need to claim my benefits for the first time on 01/29/2014, which I did. I listed the amount of money I had earned from my previous employer for the 11 hours I worked between 01/13/14 and 01/1/14. When I had claimed my benefits (for the weeks ending on 01/18, and 01/25), I received a notification stating my claim is not payable at this time. I'm assuming that is because I claimed my benefits before my claims examiner interview? When is the next time I claim my benefits? Would I claim the period of 01/26-02/01 this Sunday the 2nd? On the form it says after I claim my benefits for the first time, I will need to start claiming my benefits every week. What day of the week? I am so confused, and the unemployment line has 3+ hour wait.

I had my claims examiner interview today. I was informed that I would receive notification of whether I was approved or denied within a week. I went to check the status of my claim (first time ever) and it said my claim has been pended. Does this mean that they are making a decision pertaining to my claim based upon my interview with the claims examiner?

If I am approved for my unemployment benefits, will they pay me for the weeks of 01/18 & 01/25 that I wasn't able to get paid for at the time I had claimed them? Also if approved, when will I be paid my benefits?

I appreciate any help!

You claim again this Sunday, online, and keep claiming every Sunday. If system doesn't allow you to claim, claim next Sunday.

The pending status should change in the next two weeks, and you will be paid shortly thereafter.

NJ will pay you retro for all the weeks you've claimed if it decides in your favor.

Meanwhile, keep claiming.

I was term dec 22. I had to flee my home following domestic violence. I filed for unemployment on dec 22, 2013. My interview was not until jan 29, 2014. I faxed them proof of termination because my employer acknowledged my domestic violence but said I was not eligible for fmla. I had documented physical injuries with police dept.

The interviewer told me to continue to claim benefits on line though they still are not playable. My claim status still says Pended.

I am now being evicted because my rent is two months late. Why is it taking nj so long to pay on my claim considering my employer gave them written proof they termed me following domestic violence and I was ineligible for fmla, and the police report I also faxed them with the letter from my employer?

It's now feb 7, 2014 and claim still is Pended on line

I really don't know who to call or contact because customer service does not return calls.
