Q) I have received a letter confirming my eligibility for Unemployment Insurance, and have been filing weekly claims for the past 9 Wednesdays, but each week has been declined. I am not sure why. I filled out the direct deposit information, and I have been actively seeking work each week.
A) I would suggest that you call or preferably visit your local unemployment office and speak with a counselor regarding why you are not receiving your eligible unemployment benefits. It may be that you are not fully following their guidelines regarding how to certify each week. For some unemployment offices you have to fill out a report on companies for which you have applied for a job each week.
