Additional unemployment information

 

 

As always, we want to encourage employees to first go to IRS.gov and type in the words “Employee Emergency” for continuing information on the furlough. The Employee Resource Center (ERC) help line 866-743-5748, option 1 is also available to assist employees with questions after they have reviewed the IRS.gov “Employee Emergency” page.

 

Below is additional information received from the Utah Unemployment Claims Center with tips to help expedite filing  unemployment claims due to the shutdown.   

 

1. A claim can be filed online at jobs.utah.gov

 

2. Claimants are NOT required to supply pay stubs for monetary eligibility. With the government shutdown, there is a backlog of employees filing for claims, so government agencies are taking longer to get back to the Unemployment Claims Center with wages. In an effort to try and determine monetary eligibility faster, the Unemployment  Claims Center is asking all federally employed claimants to send pays stubs for their base period, which for most is the time period of July 1st 2017 - December 31 2018. Again, it is not required, but they are trying to do what they can to speed up the process. 

 

3. If a claimant is able and chooses to send pay stubs, they can fax it to 801-526-9394. They just need to list their first and last name and the last four digits of their social security number so the Unemployment  Claims Center can attach the fax to their claim. Claimants can use the fax machines at the Workforce Services Employment Centers for free.
