Hello,

Thank you for your post. I need to confirm that you understand that this is an "information only" Site. We cannot draft your appeal letter for you or give you the verbiage to put in it. However, I can discuss the issue with you and tell you what some of your points of challenge to your denial might be, if any. However, in order to do that, I will need to know, what State you worked in, specifically why the employer said you were terminated and some brief background facts, and why you think you qualify for UI benefits?
