Ninety-three percent (93%) of the valid unemployment insurance claims have been processed and paid out – that’s nearly $1.7B. Still, many people have not received their payments. For those who are still frustrated because they have not received their benefits, here are common reasons for the delays and denials:
- Persons working full-time and therefore ineligible for benefits but filing for the loss of part-time work, Incorrect deposit information supplied by claimants,
- No weekly certifications filed by claimants,
- Claim backdate issues,
- Separation from work that requires investigation,
- Claimants that have filed multiple claims, and
- Failure to create a username and password in the claimant online portal, etc.
DLIR is working hard to process your claims, so please be on the lookout for calls from numbers (833) 901-2272 and (833) 901-2275; it is the department trying to reach you to process your claims.
