What documents do I Need to file an unemployment claim Utah

In every state in the U.S., you will need to present certain documentation and provide specific information to apply for unemployment benefits. Some of this information you may already know, or have located, and other things you may have trouble finding. That is why websites like this one exist: to help you better understand a topic that is as simple, as it is complicated, to help you avoid difficulties when filing an initial claim for unemployment, and to provide you with all the information necessary to do so. While there are always special cases that require the assistance of a representative from the Utah Department of Labor, most individuals will be able to understand, apply for and continue receiving benefits through the information found here.

Utah Unemployment Required Documents Information 

As previously stated, you will need certain documents in order to complete your initial claim for unemployment benefits. This includes the following:

  • Social Security Number, or SSN

  • The name of each employer you have held since 10/1/2012. This date may change, but 18-24 months of employment data is usually sufficient for most claims.

  • If you obtained your job through a union, have the name and phone number ready

  • Driver’s license or state ID card

  • If you are not a U.S. citizen, but are able to work in the U.S., provide your Alien Registration Number

  • Also have any non-Utah-based employer information ready to go

These are the necessary documents for filing an unemployment claim in Utah. Luckily, in most cases, you can provide this information over the phone, or online. Therefore, there will be no need to present official documentation. However, if your claim is denied, you may be asked to provide certain documentation to file an appeal.
