In some cases, an unemployment claim may be denied or turned down. Therefore, one should know of his or her rights to file for an appeal to contest the decision and the steps in going about it. When making an unemployment claims appeal, make sure that you have already submitted the correct requirements.

You should inform the state unemployment office in your state where you have submitted your application that you are planning to file for an appeal against the decision and you are willing to provide further evidence. The appeal should be done within fourteen days after you received the decision. If the denial was based on the way you lost your work, you will have to provide documents showing that you are not fired through your own fault. Documents could include official documentation from the previous employer and written statements from those you worked with before.

Bear in mind that you should continue claiming your unemployment while the appeal is pending. You should always be calm and work your way through the whole process of the appeal. Remember that some of the reasons why a claim is denied may be as little as an error in your application where all you have to do is to provide the unemployment office with the correct ones so that they could change the decision and start paying your benefits.
