CAN MY ELIGIBILITY FOR BENEFITS BE APPEALED?
APPEALING A SERVICE CENTER DETERMINATION
When the department has made an Unemployment Compensation (UC) eligibility determination, both parties (claimant and employer) will be sent a copy of the determination.
Claimants and employers can appeal a determination of eligibility by requesting a hearing before a UC Appeals Referee no later than 21 calendar days after the determination date provided on the notice of determination.
APPEALING A REFEREE'S DECISION OR UC BOARD OF REVIEW DECISION
A Referee's decision may be appealed to the UC Board of Review within 15 calendar days of the mailing date of that decision. Any appeal of a UC Board of Review decision must be filed with the Commonwealth Court. Be aware that a request for reconsideration does not extend the time limit for appealing to Commonwealth Court.
There are three levels of UC benefits eligibility that are appealable.
