Unemployment Benefits

Certain people who have lost their jobs are entitled to unemployment benefits paid by the state for a limited amount of time. Applicants must meet the criteria established by the state and if benefits are denied the applicant may appeal to try and have the denial reversed.

Unemployment Benefit Legal Issues

Having legal counsel to obtain unemployment benefits can make a difference. It is best to hire a Longmont lawyer who handles unemployment benefits cases. He or she can form the arguments to use at the appeal hearing, meet the deadline for filing your appeal and present your case to the administrative judge.

How Do I Apply for Unemployment Benefits?

If you’ve recently lost a job and qualify for unemployment benefits, you’ll need to apply to receive them. You’ll generally need to apply through the state you were working in, though some cases may differ and ask you to apply in the state you live in, so verify with a local unemployment office if you live and work in different states. Whether in person or online, you’ll need to fill out a form with some basic identifying information and details about your last job. Once you’re approved and in the system, you’ll need to apply each week to collect benefits. During this time, you’ll also need to provide information on jobs you’re applying to, recruiters you’re working with, or state-sponsored career building events you’re attending.

Are There Any Unemployment Benefits Lawyers Near Me In Longmont, CO?

Searching for a verified Unemployment benefits attorney near you may seem like a daunting task, but it will be worth it when you find the right fit for your case. Get an advocate that will fight to protect your unemployment benefits rights under the law. The LawInfo directory can assist you in finding a verified unemployment benefits lawyer in Longmont.

Where Do I File for Unemployment Insurance?

Each state has its own unemployment policies. They all have their own website option, which the office encourages people to try first, if possible. Each state has physical offices in different cities across the state as well. You can do an online search to find the location closest to you or the correct government website. You can use this same option each week that you apply for benefits.

What Will Disqualify You From Unemployment Benefits?

Not everyone who is out of work qualifies for unemployment. If you’re fired for cause, quit (except for very few circumstances), or refuse suitable work, you may be denied unemployment benefits. Lying on any part of your benefit applications can also disqualify you, and maybe even come with criminal penalties or require you to pay back the money you’ve already received. How long you worked at your previous job and the pay you made could also affect your eligibility.

What is an Offer of Suitable Employment?

To keep collecting unemployment benefits, you need to demonstrate that you’re unable to work. That means you usually can’t keep collecting if you refuse a suitable job that offered you pay. That doesn’t mean you have to take just any job, however. A “suitable” job usually means it’s safe for you to do that work and is reasonably accessible to you. You may have the option to turn down jobs that pay far less than you used to make, if they’re outside your career field and below your level of experience, if you can reasonably expect to find work in your field again. Check with your local unemployment office to confirm if you can turn down a particular job and still continue your benefits.

When Do Unemployment Benefits Get Deposited?

In most cases, once you complete your initial application and it’s approved, you’ll receive your first benefits in about two to three weeks if you use direct deposit, sometimes a bit longer if you have your check mailed to you. After that you can often expect to receive pay once a week if you correctly applied the week before. In some states or some circumstances that may vary, however, so no need to panic if your payments come a bit later. If you’re concerned that it’s been too long, reach out to your local unemployment office.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney’s experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Unemployment Benefits Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who’ve been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer’s experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It’s a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
