service and timeliness of benefit payments for those individuals filing
for temporary layoffs of up to six weeks, the Department of Labor is
taking steps to diminish the use of the shutdown claim/temporary layoff
filing Form UC62V by requesting that employers, instead, utilize the
Separation Packet located at
Therefore, please provide your employees, prior to the shutdown, with a
separation packet and instruct them to file through the TeleBenefits
line (telephone numbers are provided in packet). If you have already
submitted a form UC62V to the Department of Labor for processing, we
will honor and process this form.
Please direct your questions to the Claims Examination
Unit at 860-263-6635.
