Nevada Unemployment – Know Your Rights

Nevada unemployment insurance is meant to replace income on a limited, temporary basis. The program has two goals: to maintain economic stability during a recession; and to help those who lose their jobs.Seal of Nevada

As is the case in all states, Nevada unemployment benefits are subject to strict rules and guidelines enforced by the state. In Nevada, unemployment is managed by the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR). Before filing for unemployment benefits in Nevada, it’s important to know about eligibility requirements, where to go for help, and what information you will be asked to provide. Being informed and prepared will increase your chances of having your unemployment benefits claim approved.


Before applying for unemployment benefits in Nevada, your eligibility status must be determined. The requirements in Nevada closely resemble those of other states, and include, but are not limited to:

  • You must be unemployed through no fault of your own
  • You must be physically and mentally able to work when you file a claim
  • You must be available to look for and accept work in line with your usual occupation
  • You must have earned enough within the base period* of your claim
  • You must not be employed full-time
  • You must not refuse work that is offered to you

*The base period is the twelve-month period established by law during which you have been paid wages. Find more information here:

The initial requirement—being unemployed through no fault of your own—is fairly straightforward. It typically applies to layoffs, reduction in hours due to lack of work, your company going out of business, or the company being sold and reducing the workforce.

While illness or injury could also cause no-fault job loss, they do not make you eligible for unemployment benefits. In the case of injury or illness, you must file a workmans compensation claim.

In addition, you may still be eligible for unemployment benefits if you voluntarily left a job due to a hostile work environment, harassment, or other similar circumstance. However, these types of claims would require an investigation, and payment of your benefits could be delayed, but would most likely be made retroactive to the date of separation if the investigation proved misconduct on the part of the employer.

If you are dismissed from your job due to misconduct on your part, you may still file a claim for unemployment benefits. However, your former employer will likely deny your claim, in which case, if you believe you have been falsely accused, or wrongly denied unemployment benefits, you may appeal the decision.

How to Apply

While it’s still possible to apply for benefits in person and over the phone, you also have the option of filing a claim online. You must provide information such as:

  • your social security number
  • names and addresses of your last two employers
  • dates of employment for your last two employers

You will also have to provide information about the circumstances under which you lost your employment, and whether you have sought any new employment.

Unemployment Payments

If you are approved to receive Nevada unemployment benefits, you will most likely be issued an EPPI card. Many states, including Nevada, use the EPPI card to issue unemployment benefits. It’s a prepaid debit card, but because it has either a VISA or MasterCard logo, it can be used practically anywhere for nearly anything from groceries to gas to other household bills, and even at ATMs.

This is the preferred method of issuing benefits because it’s more secure than mailing checks, and provides beneficiaries with immediate funds when the card is reloaded. It also saves the DETR money that would otherwise be spent printing and mailing checks.

Find out more about the EPPI card here:

vIf you’d rather receive your unemployment benefits via a method other than the prepaid debit card, you’ll need to call DETR and speak to a customer service representative.

Weekly Certification

Once your unemployment claim has been approved, you must certify your status on a weekly basis in order to continue to receive benefits. This is to prevent people from receiving benefits even after they’ve found new work. In addition, you must remember to certify weekly. If you don’t, your unemployment benefits payments may be delayed. The weekly certification process requires you to answer questions such as:

  • Did you work during the last week?
  • Did you look for work during the last week?
  • Did you make any income during the last week?

You must answer these questions honestly, or you may be subject to repercussions. It’s best to keep a log of your job search activity every week—resumes you sent out, interviews you went on—and have it ready should anyone at DETR request that information.

You may claim unemployment benefits for 26 weeks. After that time, if you are still unemployed, you may file for an extension of benefits, but there is no guarantee your request will be approved.


If your claim for unemployment benefits was denied, you have the ability to appeal the ruling. You must file your appeal within 11 days of the date the decision to deny benefits was made. If your appeal is approved, you may have to attend a hearing during which you will be able to state your case about why your claim for unemployment benefits should be approved. Be prepared to give evidence to support your case, such as dates of employment, witnesses to any employer misconduct, or any other information that will substantiate your claim.

Frequently Asked Questions About the EPPI Card


  • Kat

    I might be let go off my full time job anytime soon. i did however take a part time job 2 weeks ago at night to supplement since my full time doesnt make enough to cover all our expenses. Can i still qualify for unemployment even if i have a part time job? Is there a cap of how much you can make from part time. i am paid as a contractual person and they do not take out taxes of $15/hour. I will probably average 15-20 hours every 2 weeks?

  • Lance

    I recently worked remotely on contract, for a company based in New York, but reside in Nevada. I was a W2 employee, so they took out taxes, etc.
    They don’t show up in my claim area. Do I add them as an out of state claim? Do I claim through New York? I didn’t physically work in their office, as I was a remote worker.

  • Victoria Jones

    I received a letter saying
    “You are entitled to benefits from 12/11/2016, if otherwise eligible” in the decision section.

    Does this mean that I will receive my benefits?

    Also, I didn’t know that I had to file every week since the day I was unemployed, can I get back pay? Or is it based on the weeks that I’ve applied?

    I’ve only applied initially and then today….

    Please help me!

    • Yes, you were approved. No, you cannot get the back weeks for which you did not submit claims. Try to contact Nevada to ask if they will make an exception. If you can’t get through by phone, visit one of their offices. As a rule, the states are not flexible on this issue. CA may, once in while, grant back weeks. But, Nevada is not California. You lose nothing by asking.

  • Aneirin

    I was suddenly put on-call without notice from my employer and I’m still working there; is that still grounds for filing? I don’t know when I’ll be given a regular schedule again, so when the form online says “do you plan on returning to this employer” do I put no since I’m not sure if they’re going to change that? Also, do I need to alert the employer that I am applying for unemployment until I get a second job? I’ve applied to over 50 positions this month and have only gotten one interview thus far. Thank you.

  • Jonathan b

    My claim is an interstate claim I am owed now 10 weeks they released my initial two weeks but have yet to pay me for the rest of my 10 weeks I keep calling and asking questions I get nowhere and the one direct line I have I get no return call What can I do

  • Jonathan

    How long does it take for me to get payment after I file weekly claim?

    • If you have just applied for benefits, expect to wait at least four weeks before benefits begin. If your claim has been approved, payments should be on your card two days after you certify.

      • Jonathan

        If I had to reactive because I missed a week of weelky claim do I have to wait another 4-6 weeks or is it still 2 days?

        • If the system took your claim, you should receive money as normal. Claims close usually within one or two weeks of no benefits being paid (varies by state) – in which case you would need to “reopen” the claim either online or by calling NV as you wouldn’t be allowed to claim. Since you were able to claim online, it would appear the claim is still open.

          • Jonathan

            Thank you for your help 1 more question if I filed on sunday does it count as a day(so I would receive payment on Tuesday) or should I expect it Wednesday? Again thank you.

          • States vary in how they pay. If you filed in the afternoon on Sunday, you might not get paid until Wednesday. Use previous payments as your guide. Check your online status. Normally, if payments have been processed, the online acct will indicate. If you see no money after three days, call Nevada – or visit a Nevada office and talk with someone.

  • Desiree A

    my unemployment benefits are going to run out in a few weeks; are there any extension programs at all?

  • Joy

    why does the claim application ask for the gross earnings in the last week of employment? I was on unpaid leave at that time so my earnings in the last week of employment was 0. Will it affect my unemployment claim?

  • Daniel

    My employer received a letter stating of unemployment fraud by me, says i owe $15,000 and im not sure what to do next or how to get information on this case. Can you please email me on how to go about this? Thank you

  • Niko

    Hello, Im trying to figure out when i will receive my weekly benefit amount. I was approved on 11/25 and have received my EPPI card a few weeks ago but nothing is showing in my acct. When i call the automated phone # to inquire about the status of my claim it says I am up to date. I just would like to know when I can expect any progress. I know its a busy time and I thank you for your patience. My Claimant ID is 5156687 , if that helps with the problem. Thank you so much and have a blessed day!

  • Willy

    Why did I receive 2 different cards? One card is the Nevada Visa Debit card, with info on, with the horse on the card.

    The other card is a Bank Of America Master Card through B of A,

    Why 2 cards?

  • C. Jackson

    I applied for unemployment benefits 11/05/2016. My previous employer appealed and we had the hearing. The final decision was i am eligible to receive benefits. How long before I actually start receiving my benefits.

    • Possibly a couple of weeks. Some states pay very quickly after a decision, others take longer. Try to contact Nevada. It’s possible if you fax in the decision, you will bypass the red tape. Of course, keep claiming. Nevada cannot pay weeks which have not been claimed.

  • How long I have to wait after I applied,
    I filed on 12/13/16 , I got two different kind cards but no money in either of them, am really in afainancial hardship time,is there anything I can do to get my payment quick?
    Thanks in advance!

  • Dealer2017

    I have tried to file unemployment back in 2009. I was denied. I now work for the same employer 5 years later but am working a totally reduced schedule. I am filing unemployment to cover the hours that I am not getting at work. They are saying that I need to send pay check stubs that say I made 388 a week for 10 weeks. That is the benefit amount I would have received if I was able to collect back in 2009. My benefit amount is considerably less this time. Why does my previous claim that I never even got have anything to do with my present one? I don’t understand.

    • Because Nevada needs verification that you have worked and earned enough to purge the previous disqualification. If nothing else, send them tax returns and/or W-2s for 2010 or later. That should do it.

  • Michelle

    I was terminated for reaching the maxium attendance point of 12 points… I was denied UI for misconduct…What can I do to successfully appeal this…. I was pending fmla for taking care of my mom…. and I had gotten sick and that put my attendance points at 12 1/2….I had recived my 7th FWW for the year and was verbally told I was terminated but the director was waiting on HR…. they still continued to put me on the schedule and penalize me by giving me all late shifts and not working with me when I told them my mom had appointments.
    .when I would come to work… they would call the director to see if it was okay fore to work… ..I was even told that they were penalizing me for calling in…everytime i would ask what was going on I was told “Idk we’re waiting on HR”….I was literally on pins and needles… all of this started in late September…I wasn’t terminated until Mid November… I honestly don’t know what to do… if anything 😬😬😬

    • You appeal this decision and present your case at the appeal hearing. You had medical and family reasons for the absences. Yours is not a disqualifying form of misconduct, but the states will almost always initially deny benefits in situations like yours and let the appeal court sort it out. Only at appeal do they review the facts. File the appeal request immediately. It may be a month or longer before Nevada will schedule the hearing.

  • jaygee

    Filed 12/04/2016 approved 12/29/2016 2 payments sent also 12/29/2016 with confirmation numbers, Bank of America Eppicard website has no info on my card, i can call the card hotline and i have 0 balance. it is now 1-3-2017 have not recieved any money at all.

    • Holidays delay payments. It could take another two-three days before the money appears on your card.

      • jaygee

        their website says up to 72 hours, now i’m no mathmatician but between 12-29-2016 and 1-4-2017 is 144 hours, even taking into consideration the holiday and even an extra day, that is still 72 hours, there are no pending deposits on my card, however it shows that Nevada UI has approved and sent a total of 3 payments as of today.

        • It’s 72 hours by business day. Banks don’t post on weekends and holidays. Your days look like this:

          Dec. 29 – Payment pushed – does not count as a day
          Dec. 30 – Friday – business day
          Dec. 31 – Saturday – not a business day
          Jan. 01 – NY day – holiday not a business day
          Jan. 02 – NY holiday for all govt agencies and banks – not a business day

          Jan. 03 – Tuesday – business day
          Jan. 04 – Wednesday – business day

          You’ll probably see some money tomorrow.

  • John

    I will be losing my job the 2nd week of January. My question to you is, I will be receiving a severance package. Does this effect my unemployment benefits?

    • Assume if you receive ten weeks severance, your benefits will be delayed ten weeks. Most states, if severance is paid lump sum, offset benefits only for the week paid. However, NV is vague on this issue. Therefore, assume a disqualification from benefits until severance is exhausted. Provided this is not more than 26 weeks severance, apply for benefits immediately. If you are receiving more than 26 weeks severance, please post back.

  • Jordan

    This state is terrible , 462 attempts to speak with with someone , yes that’s correct 462 God damn times I have called in the last 2 weeks . I was approved now says refusal of work which isn’t correct, I’d like to know why Nevada thinks it’s funny to burn they’re citizens. My taxes and donation go into this state , i deserve 5 minutes to correct this mistake .

  • Jamil A Muhammad

    How long are the payments expected to be delayed?

  • Trina

    If you filed your claim online on time, will there still be a delay in benefits due to the holidays?
    Does Anyone know?

  • Tajuana manson

    Unemployment of Nevada is claiming that I had an overpayment they have already taken unemployment that I qualify for they have already garnished me then all of a sudden the amount went up $3,000 they say it’s due to a system change they tell me it’s too late to appeal it I requested a garnishment stay and wasn’t able to keep up the $250 a month payments because I have a household of 5 that I take care of on my own they had all the money available to them when they had the tax evasion they decided to only take a portion of it and then garnish me and cause my quality of life every month to suffer I did another garnishment stay because they decided to garnish me right before Christmas my rent has gone up $200 my expenses has gone up and yet they still deny me because their reason is I couldn’t keep up with the $250 a month they were asking for I did say that I can make payments monthly now they’re taking 25% of each check which is causing me a hardship and they don’t care my income has increased I’m going to lose my apartment if I’m unable to make payments and they still don’t care the documentation they mailed to me does not give a reason as to why this so-called it went up $3,000 the supervisors base their decisions on the garnishment stay on their own personal views and have no idea it could care less about the financial strain it puts on a single mother how can I file a complaint this has caused me serious hardship to the point of where I have to split my rent up and I just moved into my new apartment I have a car note I have bills I have insurance I have student loans what can I do

    • Legally, there is very little you can do to get the state to reduce or stop this garnishment without incurring extensive legal fees with a very low probability of a favorable outcome.

      Consuolt a bankruptcy atty immediately. In most states unemployment overpayments can be discharged in bankruptcy.

      The garnishment stops when bankruptcy papers are filed.

      Bankruptcy is nothing to be ashamed of. The rich use bankruptcy as a financial management tool all the time and think nothing of it. Think Donald Trump – who filed at least four times, possibly more. The sooner you file, the sooner the collection process/garnishment stops.

      Even if you have a car loan, most lenders will reaffirm the loan – so you shouldn’t lose the car. Generally, life just goes on as before.

      • tajuana manson

        i filed unemployment and was told that it could not be included in the bankruptcy. What makes it so bad is I cant appeal, Then they base their decision on their own personal view. I called again and spoke with Richard and he hung up in my face. How do I file a complaint against then.

        • Complaints to NV unemployment department managers probably won’t do any good, even if you are able to locate direct contact information.

          A much better option is to email your State of Nevada elected representatives. Find yours, here:


          Employees of the state unemployment offices are uninformed and commonly give out wrong information, or knowingly false information. If someone at the unemployment office told you this debt can’t be discharged in bankruptcy, DO NOT BELIEVE THEM until you verify with an atty. These people are NOT there to help you, but to prevent payment of benefits if at all possible, and certainly not to give you information whereby you might relieve yourself of this overpayment.

          YOU GET BANKRUPTCY ADVICE FROM A NEVADA BANKRUPTCY ATTY – not the unemployment office. CONTACT A BANKRUPTCY ATTY IMMEDIATELY. Many provide free consults.

  • Ed

    I would like to file a complaint on Nevada unemployment! They never answer the phone when you call and if they do they say they are busy and hang up on you! They only help you Monday, Tuesday and take questions the rest of the days that’s bull shit! I’ve tried calling them to no avail this days! They make it so hard for you to get in touch with them it’s reduces!

  • Aims

    My bf was waiting for the unemployment interview today but his phone never rang and instead it went to voicemail. They just said they were going to decide it w/o talking to him. Has anyone had this happen? We are in Nevada.

  • Chris

    Hi there, I filed on 11/27th…it still says it’s open, and I am continuing to file weekly. I just looked to see the status and it just now said on 12/6 “non pay due to initial hold payment” and on 12/12, “for review” and on the prior page where it says Payment Issued, there is an “N” under each date. I am not sure what any of this means. Or if I should just keep filing and keep waiting to see if I get approved or not?? Thank you so much

    • It’s too soon to expect a claim approval – which can take up to four-six weeks, or longer after application. Keep claiming, absolutely.

      • Mel

        I have filed a claim on 11/27/16. received a letter saying I quit on “good cause” and that I have sent enough proof of my employer harassing me, but I haven’t got any payment or any other letter or call, I can’t seem to get a hold of anyone on any phone numbers listed for unemployment office. On my determination history says on the decision “allow” but on the payment history says “N” and discharge? What are all those supposed to mean? This is really confusing

  • Stacey burke

    My case says open as of Dec.11.2016 when will I receive my debit card and then when will the benefits be on the card?

  • Vanessa

    Why does nv unemployment send you a debit card if they haven’t even approved your claim? It’s quite silly.

  • Teresa

    Due to the fact that I do seasonal jobs, when I filed my claim, it calculated a certain amount if I filed before the new year but then a higher amount if I filed after the new year (since the job that paid better was more recent). I am wondering if the amount I am given each week will go up after the new year or was that only if I had filed later?


    • The amount once established remains the same for the entire benefit year. The higher amount would have been available only if you had filed later, because a different base period of wages would be used.

      If you have not yet claimed a benefit or been paid that benefit, it may be possible to ask Nevada to cancel the claim so you can refile in January. Claimants do this in every state to improve the benefit. Usually you are given 30 days from the date of UI determination to request a cancellation – PROVIDED you have not yet claimed and/or received a benefit. In CA, just claiming the benefit voids the right, but each state handles this differently.

  • Jasmin

    Recieved a letter today saying you are entitled to benefits from 11/06/2016, if otherwise eligible. It also states my job has not responded to separation. I already recieved my card like 2 weeks ago but still no funds are available. Does this mean im approved? Or doni have to wait for my job to respond? Thanks in advance!

    • You haven’t been approved. Nevada may begin paying anyway. However, these payments are made on a conditional basis pending an employer response. If employer responds later after payments begin, NV may suspend payments pending an investigation if employer response raises any issues. Employers are given a lot of latitude. Many do respond/appeal late when they’ve been notified benefits are being paid.

  • Gina

    I have provided my paycheck stubs back in October. Thank you for your response.

  • Gina

    I have been awaiting resolution of unreported wages to DETR for over 7 weeks. The investigator has contacted the employer and is waiting to receive signed reports from them. I have in the meantime I am working part time earning $8.75 an hour. I am one day away from living out in the streets. Is this a normal wait time?

  • Rudy Ortega

    This is the worst service imaginable. I tried filling out a new claim on the website and there was a computer error as it said my city and zip code don’t match. That is ridiculous! I tried to call and it was all automated. Why isn’t there anyone to talk to? Nevertheless I tried anyways to find out I couldn’t continue with the automated system for some reason, didn’t say why. I tried to speak to someone for a general inquiry and it was too busy and said please try back later without putting me on hold or saying when to call back! The service doesn’t seem to want to help anyone!

  • Erik

    I have made claims for the last three weeks and have received no money yet. I have the debit card and was approved. On the unemployment website, it shows the claims went through and I have confirmation numbers. When should I start receiving money?

    • If you were actually approved, the money should be on your card. Call NV and ask. Three weeks after application is usually too soon to expect benefits, so I am wondering if you misinterpreted the UI Determination of Benefits to be an approval. A notification of claim amount and weekly benefit is not an approval. You need to call NV or visit a local office.

  • Anthony

    My claim was accepted on 11/2/16 and I’ve since filed two weekly claims, yet I haven’t received my debit card. I tried calling today but after 4 hours on hold, I hung up. I can’t get info from Eppicard because they want a PIN number I don’t have. How long am I supposed to wait for the card? Also, if I ever receive the card will the money from the weekly claims already be deposited?

    • If you mean you applied on November 2nd, it’s way too soon to expect an approval. Approvals take at least four weeks in most states, assuming there are no issues. Many states now don’t send debit cards until claim has been approved. You won’t be seeing any money for another two-three weeks, at least. Keep claiming. Once approved, all money for past weeks will be loaded onto the card at the same time.

  • Jessica

    When I go to claimant homepage the status is “Open” It has been 5 weeks since I applied for UI. Today I got a letter that I will get a new bank of america card for replacement but I never got the first debit card. Should I just wait little longer? It Open means it is still processing?

  • Raven

    I worked for a job for 2 and a half months , every check my check was short , I contacted labor board and also spoke with my manager regarding my concerns , she then discharged me for no reason claiming she is a AT will company . I filed for unemployment provided check stubs, however my manager tells unemployment I violated a rule , I think provided evidence to show she was lying as well as text messages where she stated she will fire me intentionally however I was still denied benefits what can I do ? I not only want to appeal but file a complaint as well.

  • Gregory Mitchell

    I haven’t received a debit card I have a letter saying both previous jobs were accepted. On my personal site it has a highlight saying “issue delaying payment ” who should I contact to get this resolved. I am allowed to fill my weekly claim but it has been over 4 weeks and I was wondering what to do next.

  • Jorge

    Hello i filled a claiment and it didn’t really tell me what to do next. I’m a seasonal worker and ive had benefits in 2004 and 2009. I tried to call with the numbers here but it doesn’t work. Will i get mailed if it’s accepted or denied? How long will that take?

    • Today is a Saturday, you can’t expect anyone to answer. You should hear something from NV in the next ten days. If you don’t and you still can’t get through on the phone, go to one of the NV offices which have phone banks with direct lines to the reps.

  • SF

    How can I even file a claim after being on hold for 4 HOURS and you guys hang up on me?? And then the system won’t even accept my call? Please do tell me what to do now.

  • Tom

    My son was recently separated from USMC with an 80% service connected disability and a $1500 disability check. He was denied because of what they call his monthly “pension” check. Are they the same? To me pension and disability payments are totally different, one is exceeding a retirement decision, the other is not being able to continue employment due to the service connected disability. T.

    • Clearly, NV did not examine your son’s claim very well. Pension payments which can be an offset to unemployment benefits are not disability payments. Assuming this was a pension, NV would offset his maximum monthly benefit of $1,763 with the $1,500, and pay $263. It would appear your son does not qualify for the maximum payment; therefore, if his was a “pension,” he would receive zero because of the offset.

      All that said, regardless of what NV is calling this payment, your son is not eligible for unemployment benefits because unemployment benefits are not paid to the disabled.

      Unemployment benefits are paid to people who are Able and Available – i.e., searching for and able to accept full-time work if offered. The disability status alone is disqualifying – whether or not he gets money for this disability.

      If your son recovers and becomes A&A, then the disability payments will cease. Whether or not he qualifies for unemployment benefits will depend on how much of his military pay remains in the base period used at the time he applies.

      FYI, a few states have short-term disability programs with very generous benefits for illnesses, pregnancies, etc., but these SDI payments are not paid concurrently with unemployment benefits, are paid only until claimant is again A&A – at which time claimant may be able to revert to an existing (or new) unemployment benefit claim.

      It is not possible to collect unemployment benefits from any state if one is disabled.

    Okay so I applied for unemployment 2 weeks ago says I got denied w/relief still trying to figure that out! Anyway I read the reason I was denied and it was totally different from what I implied! I left for job dissatisfaction because I felt I was getting bullied and my lovely interviewer said because my hourly rate was less than before.. I did tell her about my hourly rate being lower and how I disliked it but that wasn’t the reason I left! Should I appeal or can I just talk to another person about it?

  • Heather

    I filed for unemployment in February and was denied because I quit but it stated that I was disqualified until I work for 10 weeks making at least my benifits rate per week and now my page shows that they are charging the company I left for the Job I just quit and it allowed me to reactivate this claim I have not yet been back to work so I’m now wondering if I am in fact going to receive benifits or not

    How do I apply to get paid while on FMLA?

  • Lashawn

    Why did I not get approved for the full benefits amount when I had been working at the same place 10 years!!! How does that happen??

    • You need to examine the wages in the base period used by Nevada. Are they correct? Do they rise to the level which would allow the maximum Nevada benefit? Currently, NV’s maximum benefit is $407/wk., paid for up to 26 weeks. Complete information on how benefits are calculated, here:

      If you are monetarily eligible, your WEEKLY BENEFIT AMOUNT will be 1/25, or 4 percent of your highest quarter earnings. This amount cannot be more than the maximum weekly benefit amount, which is set by law each year, beginning July 1.

    I received two letters one said: You are entitled to benefits from 2/28/16, if otherwise eligible. The second letter said: You are not entitled to benefits effective 2/28/16 . I was in a car accident on September 11th and I have a broken hip and pelvis and an arm and I was let go because of medical reasons because I have to have more surgery so I don’t understand these letters are you approved or not approved how do you know?

    • Joslyn W

      I got the same thing. 1 saying approved and another one saying deny w/relief all on the same decision date. Did you ever ended up getting paid? This is so confusing.

    • @crystal – if you lost your job because of medical reasons, Nevada should approve the claim. However, NV will not be able to pay benefits until you are recovered, provide a doctor’s release stating you are fit to search for and accept work. Unemployment benefits are not paid when is disabled. That said, normally the “not eligible” letter rules. You need to find out the status. You should have a claim. But, as stated, you will not be able to collect on that claim until you are fit for work.

    I waited for 2 hours on hold to ask if they are going to send me a new card and they disconnected the call AFTER TWO HOURS. Now I had to start all over again on hold. This is RIDICULOUS. I HAVE ONE SIMPLE QUESTION. The debit card people have the address attached to the old card I no longer have but my application is over a week old. Does this mean I will be receiving a new card because I have yet to recurve one. This hold music and these fraud messages are driving me nuts now after 2 hours and being hung up on. FIX YOUR SYSTEM AND DON’T MAKE PEOPLE WAIT SO LONG FOR SIMPLE QUESTIONS. BEING UNEMPLOYED IS STRESSFUL ENOUGH AS IT IS’!!!!!

    I had a letter on 01-08-16 stating I’m entitled to benefits from 12-27-15. I just got another one about a different past employer saying I am not entitled to benefits effective 11-08-2015. What does this mean? Will I receive nothing ?

    • crystal p

      Did you ever receive anything cuz I got the same kind of letters one saying I was eligible and one saying I wasn’t?

    • In both cases, you will need to find out why. Generally, if you’ve quit an earlier job without cause or there was misconduct, the current application can be affected until you prove you have earned enough to purge any penalty from the prior issues.

  • Debbie

    You CANNOT file claim in person in the OFFICE. We were there today —

    Both of us applied almost 2 weeks ago online — and were told since worked out-of-state could not file online — have to call…

    CAN”T GET THROUGH — when get through, get disconnected or transferred to someone who cannot help… i.e. INFORMATION LINE calls back several hours later and basically says tough!

    Do you need an attorney == just to get to FILE a CLAIM???

  • Eddy Smith

    Got calls about employer filing an appeal opposing my UI claim. The person from the UI gave me a govt number that is no longer in service. Why should I be surprised? UI said I would get $300+ per week and then they paid $`170 for 3 of the 7 weeks I was unemployed. Tried calling them and was put on hold for an hour. I understand it is govt ran, but if a company was ran this ineffective in the private sector it would have filed bankruptcy more times than Trump.

  • Karla

    I have received a letter that said you are entitled for benefits on 11/08/15 if otherwise eligible, does that mean I’ve been approved?

    • Daniel

      I’m in the same position, down to the date even. I still haven’t received my debit card either. Any time I click on the file information regarding a payment for the week filled, it takes me to the decision for my claim, which states “allow”.

    • Letters which provide information on your “possible” benefits are not approvals. Continue to claim. If NV is like most states, it will send the debit card when the claim has been approved.

  • Anthony Macnabb

    When tried doong cquick claim on phone for my weekly claim said still have money on account but used all my 20 weeks…firstly pretty sure hasnt been 20 weeks but even if has since no extensions in nevada is there any way around that or can be done to get more weeks since have money on account still?

  • fran dalton

    i just looked on the website. though the recording when i called in my claim said it was processed successfully the website says my benefits were exhausted. the automated voice says there are no extension programs in nevada. so what the heck do i do now? i am 55, cant find work, and am raising my 2 grand daughters by myself as their mom, my daughter -died. i cant become homeless. i am scared to death now. what do i do???

  • What day do you receive your money on your card after filling?

  • Dana Gill

    I need to find out if I can get a print out of benefits received.

  • I have been collecting my unemployment for 20 weeks, I have not found a job yet. Do they just stop paying or is there something to do to get a extension.

  • I think its a bunch of B.S. that a person calls early in the morning to speak to someone for help with online difficulties and after two hours you get hung up on. You then call back and it says que full for the day. Well by god I was in que until your people decided to go lunch and clear the lines!

  • Whats the number to call every week in order to get your money?

  • Deny/w relief mean your denied . They will send you a letter stating why. Marvin Nevada is a horrable state to try and get help. Do not think they will approve you.

  • My spouse is being offered employment in Las Vegas and we are going to relocate. I haven’t yet found employment and wanted to know if that is acceptable grounds to file unemployment. The twist is that I am retired military and draw a military pension. I just want to cover all of the bases before terminating my current job and relocating.

    Thank you.

    • If you are moving within the State of Nevada, there are no benefits if you quit your current job to follow your wife. NV pays trailing spouse benefits for military base transfers only. Now, if you are currently living in California, then, yes, you have no problem quitting your California job and collecting unemployment from the State of California until you find work in Nevada. The laws of the state you are moving FROM determine trailing spouse benefits. Before you quit, be sure your current employer can’t use you remotely in LV.

  • Have NEVER received my DEBIT card and cannot get any information by calling 877-829-4130…they want the card number and pin #, all automated…even if you do not put any numbers in…keeps saying they haven’t gotten the number and after about three times of this the number just hangs up……and no way to actually speak to anyone…any ideas ion how to get my card?

  • i was approved and received benefits for 4 weeks. now they are saying i refused work 4 weeks ago… how is this possible?

  • SO @dustin did you get your benefits…i have the same thing too.

  • I had just filed a few weeks ago as I seperated from Cox Communications here in Las Vegas. I just peeked into my account through the website and the determination says “Deny w/ Relief” in those exact words and symbols. What does this mean? I am thinking optimistically that Cox is denying or fighting me, but the w/ relief part means that they are giving it to me anyway. But worst case, I am denied…what does the “w/ relief” mean? Weird wording either way. Thanks for your help

  • I worked in ca last year made 18thousand. Can I get unemployment from ca?

  • How do I change my tax status from taxes taken out of my unemployment benefits to no taxes withheld ? I would be in a better position if I paid my taxes due, in tax season 20014.

  • Trying to re open my claim

    • Darlene Elsmore

      I’ve been trying to file,for four days,

      What a Racket…

      • Bri

        Darlene – I’m not sure what site you are attempting to apply for unemployment insurance through, but there should not be any sort of application fee for applying for unemployment insurance in Nevada or any other state for that matter. Please visit Nevada’s office Unemployment Compensation site at the following address:

  • My son Michael Brooks hasn’t been able to get through to get the unemployment, we have been with out mail since 6-13-13 702-504-6018

    • Why are you without mail? Open a Post Office Box at your local Post Office if you can’t get delivery to your home. Then – using the internet via the contact from on the NV unemployment website – notify Nevada of your change of mailing address. Then, email your state representative requesting they have someone from Nevada call you to straighten out your son’s claim – or your son should visit a local NV unemployment office. Look up the addresses of your nearest office on the Nevada website.

  • I received two letters one said: You are entitled to benefits from 8/18/13, if otherwise eligible. The second letter said: You are not entitled to benefits effective 8/18/13 until i return to work in covered employment and earn at least $212.00 in each of 10 weeks. Etc. Please let me know do i get benefits or do i not receive benefits.

    • ali

      Did you get your benefits? i got the same two letters.

    • Neither of you get benefits. You’ve both been disqualified either because you did not quit for good cause – or were guilty of misconduct. This means you need to go back to work, earn the designated amount, and experience a qualified separation. If you do not agree with the determination, file an appeal and rebut the reasons why you were disqualified.

  • If you are receiving CONTRIBUTIONS-based JSA, you MAY be able to cnntioue claiming it if you are going to Europe TO LOOK FOR WORK but you will probably have to give at least 4 weeks’ notice; there are various forms to be completed and letters to take with you to the equivalent of Jobcentreplus in the European country you are going to. Please note that there may be only certain European countries where we have reciprocal arrangements.If you DO qualify for your JSA Contributions-based to be exported, you will only get the same equivalent rate as you currently get in the UK; if the standard of living is higher in the country you go to, you may find yourself financially worse off than staying in the UK.In addition, your JSA would still exhaust at the same time as it would if you stayed in the UK regardless of whether the other country’s benefit entitlement would otherwise last for a longer period.If you only get INCOME-based JSA, you will not be able to export this benefit if you go abroad.
