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:

Please be advised section I “Claimant Information” has several revised
questions. Please be sure to read each question carefully. Failure to
do so may result in a delay of benefits.
