Intake Interview

Intake Interview


During this interview, you will tell us the facts that led to losing your job. We will ask you specific questions about your case and about your job search. Most intake interviews last between 30 minutes and one hour. Once completed, we will determine whether our office has the resources to accept your case. You will be notified in writing of the ULP’s decision usually within 5 business days of the intake interview. If your hearing is already set within 5 business days, contact us in the afternoon of the day after your intake interview.

If you need an interpreter, let us know and we will try to arrange for one.

After the Intake Interview

After the interview, it is important for you to do the following:

  • Contact the ULP immediately if you receive a “Notice of Hearing” in the mail to tell us when your hearing date is scheduled.
  • Keep filing weekly claims even you if you are repeatedly denied unemployment benefits. If you win at the hearing, you will receive benefits only for the weeks that you filed a claim.
  • Continue looking for work, making at least three new job contacts a week, and keep a log of the job contacts that you make. The judge may want to see the record, called a Job Search Log, of your contacts at the hearing.
