Unemployment Benefits Not Affected By Government Shutdown.

In response to inquiries regarding whether the payment of unemployment insurance benefits will be affected as a result of the federal shutdown, Labor Commissioner Sharon M. Palmer today noted claimant’s currently collecting unemployment benefits in Connecticut will not be impacted by the shutdown.

They will continue to receive payments. “We are open for business and employees from our unemployment insurance unit are on the job to process payments and respond to inquiries,” noted Palmer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPalmer noted that federal government employees who may be newly unemployed as a result of the shutdown can also file a claim. In these cases, the following guidelines should be observed:  To initiate a claim for benefits, federal employees may call the applicable TeleBenefits phone number on the Labor Department’s website at http://www.ct.gov/dol

Federal claims are filed with the state where federal wages are assigned. For example: ‐ In most cases, if a federal employee has their residence in Connecticut, but their last official duty station (current job) is in California for example, they would file with the State of California. ‐ In most cases, if a federal employee has their residence in California, but their last official duty station (current job) is in Connecticut, for example, they would file with the State of Connecticut.

Because federal employers do not report wage information to state labor departments (all other public and private employers do report this information), when the Connecticut Labor Department receives a claim application from a federal employee, CTDOL must always request wage and separation information from the federal employer before it can determine if the employee is eligible, and based on the stated salary, what the weekly benefit amount will be.
