Hello, my name is** . I work part-time (weekends-8 hrs.) But I was laid off from my full time job in Dec. I have been collecting unemployment the past 3 weeks. I accidentally answered 1 question wrong the past 2 weeks by saying NO to: ***** ***** work at all during the week or did I receive vacation benefits or sick pay?" And I forgot to take into consideration that I work Sunday's at my part-time job. And now my claim is under review. My question is, what is the penalty for my stupidity of not answering YES about my part-time job?? Am I going to jail?? -Don

I was claim unemployment benefits, while I was outside of

Hi I was claim unemployment benefits, while I was outside of the country. I didn't know that this was not allowed. When I tried to claim benefits it said that I'm not able to do it form my current location. I wasn't sure why so I called my husband and ask him to do this for me. Now I got a letter asking my eligibility for work.

I received a notification that I am being charged with uniemployment

I received a notification that I am being charged with uniemployment overpayment and fraud. I have been asked to respond. I received benefits for 6 months in 2013-2014 and then they expired - I had nothing for 6 months to support me, my two children and I was pregnant. The terms of my layoff were not fair either - clear discrimination. I worked during the period I was not receiving benefits and was paid later, when my benefits resumed. It is so unclear, I didn't perceive this as fraud? I was actively pursuing work while NOT receiving benefits and when they started again. There are so many people who abuse the system - work six months, take UI for six months - and I have been paying into the system in this state for more than 16 years. When I finally need it, I am being accused of fraud? How should I respond?Thank you

Hello,I have been collecting unemployment for several weeks

Hello,I have been collecting unemployment for several weeks while out of the country. I thought this was okay as long as I was still applying for jobs online and was available to return for any potential in person interviews or to start any jobs offered. I just received a letter saying that they have information indicating I was out of the country and that I need to fill out and return an attached questionnaire with in 7 days or they will make a determination with the information they currently have. The questions ask if I let them know I was leaving the country, and if not, why? Also, if I am back in the country. What countries I visited and the purpose of the visit. After I lost my job I went through some personal issues and just felt I needed to get away. I figured I would do some traveling while on the job search via the internet and return once some opportunities came about. At this point, do I fill out the questionnaire and tell them how long I have been gone or do I let them make a determination and then deal with it when I am back in two weeks?Please advise.
