Why did my claim go to adjudication?

In broad terms, a claim goes to adjudication if it raises questions about why you left your job, or your eligibility for benefits. For example, if you said on your application that you were fired from your job, we'll need to find out more about those circumstances before we can decide if you're qualified for benefits. All reasons other than lack of work (layoffs) will trigger adjudication. (These include getting fired, quitting, taking a leave of absence and or being involved in a labor dispute.) There are a number of eligibility factors that will also trigger adjudication.

If my application goes to adjudication, does that mean I've been denied unemployment benefits?
No. If your case goes to adjudication, it means there are questions or issues that must be addressed before your claim can be cleared for payment or denied. We temporarily suspend your claim until we resolve those issues by obtaining information from you and/or your employers and by seeking additional information to clear up any conflicting or missing information. Issues often include the reason or circumstances that led to your job loss.
