Although you may be aware of the basics when filing for unemployment benefits, it is also equally important to know how to make unemployment claims appeal in case of a denied claim. The steps in appealing are entirely different from applying for the claim. When you make an appeal, there are several factors that you should consider.

The first thing that you have to do is to list down people who know you and could confirm the facts of your work exit and make sure they discuss only the facts and not about their personal opinions. Second, you must inform the unemployment specialist in your state regarding the story. Do not forget to include your name, social security number and other relevant information about your former job. Moreover, you have to gather further documents and proof.

Thirdly, you have to contact your state’s unemployment office to verify the address where you will send your appeal. The average time for you to file an appeal is within fourteen days. This will give you enough time to get all evidences and documents. In the meantime, you have to continue filing for unemployment payments as scheduled until the appeal process is through to meet all requirements. Wait for the unemployment office to notify you of their decision. If you have more proofs to present, you may ask for a hearing to challenge the decision after it has been decided.
