Reemployment Assistance Appeals Commission Request For Review

IMPORTANT

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE NOTICE

The Reemployment Assistance Appeals Commission (Commission) is responsible for reviewing contested decisions of reemployment assistance appeals referees. The Commission is not able to process reemployment assistance claims, address problems or questions involving claims or the initial claims process, or handle first-stage appeals of determinations granting or denying benefits.

We understand you may have questions about your claim for benefits, the status of your claim, or a problem with your claim, but the Commission cannot answer these questions for you. Please contact the Department of Economic Opportunity (Department) at (800) 204-2418 to obtain the assistance you need. Please do not contact the Commission with these questions, problems, or concerns.

If you have been told you are ineligible to receive reemployment assistance benefits, and you want to submit an appeal regarding that or any other adverse determination, you CANNOT do so using the form on this site. Instead, you will need to file your appeal with the Department’s Office of Appeals. You may do so via the Department’s CONNECT system. If you are unable to file an appeal of a determination via the CONNECT system, you should keep detailed records regarding the attempts you have made to file an appeal. Additionally, you may also submit an appeal to the Department’s Office of Appeals using one of these methods:
