New York State unemployment insurance question
« on: April 02, 2020, 11:42:41 AM »
Anyone who's filed for unemployment in NY state (or has good knowledge of the system) during this crisis, how long after you filed did your claim go from "pending" to "eligible" status?

I'm at about 3 weeks so far and I did get the benefits determination letter in the mail last week but the claim is still "pending".

I realize they're swamped with claims and everything is taking longer than normal.  I'm just wondering if anyone has seen a claim progress to approval and payment, or if anyone has any insight into what I can expect.

Thanks.
