UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE:
ADVISEMENT OF BENEFIT RIGHTS
001. This chapter is adopted pursuant to Neb. Rev. Stat. §§48-626, 
48-627, 48-629, and 48-607.
002. A. For benefit years beginning prior to October 1, 2015, an 
individual who wants to make a claim for unemployment 
benefits shall file his or her application for benefits through 
the Nebraska Department of Labor Claims Center’s online web 
application available at www.dol.nebraska.gov. The individual 
shall provide such information as required on the application. 
Each application shall be signed by electronic signature or 
handwritten on a form prescribed by the Commissioner.
     For benefit years beginning on or after October 1, 2015, all 
claims for unemployment benefits, except claims involving 
either wages paid by the military or federal government or 
combined with wages from state(s) other than Nebraska, shall 
be filed online through the Nebraska Department of Labor 
Claims Center’s online web application available at  
www.dol.nebraska.gov unless a special accommodation is 
required or no reasonable access to an office maintained by the 
Department of Labor is available. Conditions requiring a special 
accommodation shall include, but not be limited to, language 
barriers and physical and mental handicaps. If a special 
accommodation is required, claimants may file an application 
for benefits through the Nebraska Department of Labor Claims 
Center. The individual shall provide such information as required 
on the application. Each application shall be signed or attested 
to. An application may be signed by electronic signature or 
handwritten on a form prescribed by the Commissioner.
B. When filing a new initial claim, re-opening an existing claim, or 
filing a subsequent claim for unemployment benefits a claimant 
shall be required to register for work and create an active, online 
and searchable resume in the Nebraska Department of Labor’s 
web application for Reemployment and Benefit services in 
accordance with 219 NAC 4. 
C. The initial application for benefits shall be effective Sunday 
of the week in which the applicant files an application with the 
Department. The Commissioner, for good cause, may establish 
a different effective date.
D.  A week shall be deemed to be in, within, or during that benefit 
year which includes the greater part of such week.
003. A. A separate claim for benefits shall be made for each week 
of unemployment by a method of claiming prescribed by the 
Commissioner.
B. An individual shall be ineligible for benefits for any week for 
which the individual fails to demonstrate that the individual 
engaged in an active and earnest search for work as required 
under 219 NAC 4.
C. If prescribed by the Commissioner, a claim form will be 
mailed by the Department and shall be completed by the 
claimant and returned to and received by the Department within 
ten days of the later of the date mailed or the week ending date 
which will be stated on the form. A claimant who fails to timely 
return the claim form shall be ineligible for that week’s benefits 
unless good cause for the late return can be shown. If found 
ineligible, such applicant shall also be ineligible for benefits for 
any intervening weeks until the week in which the claim form is 
returned, regardless of cause.
D. An electronic media claim transaction shall be completed 
by the claimant and received by the Department by the Friday 
following the most recent week ending date. The failure of a 
claimant to timely complete an electronic media transaction 
shall be the basis for a denial of that week’s benefits unless good 
cause for the late transaction can be shown. Any intervening 
weeks until the week in which the transaction was completed and 
received by the Department shall also be denied, regardless of 
cause.
E. A claim for benefits shall be filed for waiting week credit even 
though benefits are not payable for that week.
F. A claim for benefits shall be filed for each week of eligibility 
during the time an applicant is awaiting the results of an appeal 
hearing if the applicant intends to claim benefits during that time 
period.
004. The Department may direct a claimant to contact one of its 
offices to meet eligibility or other reporting requirements, or 
to provide other information as needed in the administration 
of Nebraska Employment Security Law. Unless good cause is 
shown, failure to contact the office as directed may result in 
the denial of benefits beginning with the week the claimant was 
scheduled to report and ending the Saturday prior to the week in 
which he/she reports to the Department.
005. In the event that wage information cannot be obtained from an 
employer, the Department may request that such information 
be provided by the claimant. The claimant may be required to 
provide payroll check stubs, W-2s, or other reliable information 
corroborating the amount of wages stated by the claimant. A 
failure by the claimant to comply with such a request by the due 
date on the form shall cause the claim to be processed without 
the requested wages and may result in a denial of benefits until 
the week in which the information regarding requested wages is 
received by the Department. 
006. In the event of a major disaster declared by both the Governor 
of the State of Nebraska and the President, the Commissioner 
may permit backdating of the effective date of unemployment 
insurance claims to agree with the effective date of the federal 
disaster period.  
007. Each worker engaged in employment covered by the Nebraska 
Employment Security Law, including service covered by election 
of an employer, shall procure a federal social security account 
number and furnish that number to every employer for whom that 
worker performs covered employment.
008. Weeks of disqualification assessed pursuant to Neb. Rev. Stat. 
§48-628 and reductions in benefits determined pursuant to Neb. 
Rev. Stat. §48-626 shall be determined in accordance with the 
number of weeks of disqualification in effect on the applicable 
date of the most recently filed initial, transitional or additional 
claim.
