Information for Federal Employees Filing Unemployment Claims

Monetary DeterminationOnce your claim has been entered, you will receive an Unemployment Compensation MonetaryDetermination in the mail. Since federal wages are requested from the various federal agencies, theinitial Unemployment Compensation Monetary Determination will show that you are monetarilyineligible. Once the wages are entered on your claim, you will receive a revised UnemploymentCompensation Monetary Determination providing you with your weekly benefit amount (WBA).Continued Claim FormOnce your claim has been entered, you will also be mailed a claim form which will be for a two- weekperiod. Until you receive the Unemployment Compensation Monetary Determination that lists aWeekly Benefit Amount (WBA) other than a Zero Amount, you will not be able to file your continuedclaim form via the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system (via phone or Internet). If you have notreceived an Unemployment Compensation Monetary Determination with a WBA other than Zero, youwill have to either mail or take your claim form to your local office for processing. Please do not delayreturning your claim form to your local office.Waiting WeekWest Virginia law requires that claimants serve a one-week unpaid waiting period.Earnings:You are required to report all hours worked and wages earned during the week in which the work wasperformed. Accordingly, federal employees must report their hours worked/wages earned onMonday, September 30 th , as well as any hours worked on Tuesday, October 1, 2013. These wagesmust be reported. West Virginia does permit an individual to earn $60 gross, and then deductsearnings dollar for dollar after $60. If your earnings are more than your WBA plus $60, you would haveexcessive earnings and the week cannot be used as the waiting week.Payment:Payments are generally received on the debit card two business days after the claim form is processed.The earliest potential date that payment could be received would be Wednesday, October 16, 2013,for the weeks ending 10/5/13 and 10/12/13. Direct deposit payments occur within two to fourbusiness days after the claim form is processed.2
