Guide to the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Process

Following a Department determination made on an unemployment claim, an appeal may be filed by a claimant or employer to protest such determination.

Attention Claimant !!!

Information on Filing Weekly Claims During the Appeals Process
You must continue to file weekly claims throughout the appeals process if you wish to receive benefits for those weeks. If you have filed a weekly claim during the past three weeks, you should continue to file for any week you feel you are entitled to benefits. If you have not filed a weekly claim during the past three weeks, you must request reopening and/or backdating of your claim by calling the Claims Center (801)526-4400. If you are filing an interstate claim, report to the nearest unemployment office in your state for help in filing your weekly claims. When requesting reopening or backdating, notify the representative that you have filed an appeal.
