FAQ: Should I continue to file for unemployment benefits while I appeal?
Yes. If you decide you are going to appeal the decision in your case, you must continue to file your claim each week.
If you win at your hearing, you will receive benefits for the weeks you filed a claim. In addition to filing your claim each week, you must keep a record of all the job contacts you made each week. If you have not been doing this, start now. You must contact at least 3 different potential employers each week. These contacts may include calling or going to a potential employer to see if there are any jobs available, or filling out and returning a job application.
