Hey guys,

Wondering if anyone -- particularly those with experience w/ NY State Unemployment Insurance -- can provide some answers for me.

I way laid-off from my old job back in late Feb 2010...started getting UI from NYS in late March 2010, now the day my 9th payment was supposed to be released I get a call from the UI office. According to them, my old job still has me in their system as currently employed and therefore they can't release the payment until they can verify that I am indeed no longer working there. Fair enough, but that was almost a week ago. My question is, has anybody else gone through this in NYS or any state for that matter and if so -- how was it handled? Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Well I would contact your old company and ask them to remove you from their list. If they won't, tell them that you will be at work Friday to pickup your past several months worth of payment they owe you.

I've heard of companies being disorganised, but that sure beats anything else I've ever heard.

Did they not get and return the form from UE after you filed for UI ?

So, wait...the employer gets a form from the UE office after I began filing? Excuse my ignorance, I just don't know how this thing works

Yep they do, so that if they dispute your reasons for being unemployed they return the form or if not they just file it. The employer (or payroll dept) would also be receiving a quarterly statement saying your benefits had been debited against their UE account, so they definitely shouldn't still have you on their "books".

Maybe the payroll dept simply failed to deactivate your employee file in the system.

Ok I'm seeing things a bit more clearly now thanks a bunch . Now since I have already received 8 UI payments from the state since March, this means my employer more than likely has already filed the paperwork and isn't contesting my UE claim right? Also when you say "quarterly" you mean once every 3 months correct? Geez I feel like I'm on the phone with UE right now, lol.

LOL - yes, quarterly is every 3 months, and yes, there is a time frame in which the employer can appeal your receiving UE benefits, but you'd have to check with your state UE dept to know what that is.

Presumably if they weren't disagreeing with the reasons you stated to UE for your separation from your employer they wouldn't have responded.

Still, you have to admit it's weird they told UE you're still on their books as an employee, unless they spoke to someone at your previous employer who never actually interacted with you but is just going from wrong computer/paper records in the office.

Just got my benefits today Apparently UE must've got some sort of confirmation on Wed so they finally released it. Let's hope everything goes back to normal
