Unemployment Insurance Benefits 
Temporary Layoff of Six Weeks or Less

Employees on temporary layoff with a DEFINITE return to work date six weeks or less from their last date worked are eligible to file for Unemployment Benefits using the Temporary Layoff/Vacation Shutdown New Claim form (UC-62V). The return to work date is considered "definite" only if the employer has provided it on the separation notice given to the employee (UC61, commonly called "pink slip", or UC-62V).

You have written notice if:

  • Your employer completed Section III of this form and there is a date in box #9 fewer than six weeks from the date in box #8; or,

  • Your employer provided you with a Separation Packet containing form UC-61 (pink slip) and on form UC-61 there is a date in box H fewer than six weeks from the date in box I.  If you have this form, it must be attached to the completed form UC-62V.

Use of the UC-62V allows an employee to receive his or her unemployment benefit without calling the "Dial to File" Telebenefits System.

Employees with return to work dates greater than six weeks from their last date worked, or without a definite return to work date (as defined above) must use the "Dial to File" system to file their claim over the telephone.

Forms may be requested at the following email address:

Completed forms can be mailed to:
