After filing your initial claim, you will receive a Wage and Potential Benefit Report. Review your reported wages and hours carefully. If the information in your base year is wrong, you can request a redetermination of your claim. This statement will show you:
- Your weekly benefit amount and the maximum benefits payable – these numbers represent the most you may receive in a week and total amount potentially available on your claim.
- Employers you worked for, and the wages and hours they reported each quarter for you in the base year of your claim. The initial notice may only include Oregon employers. Any federal employment or work done outside of Oregon may not be included.
- Your benefit year begin and end dates – you can only claim benefits on this claim for weeks falling between these dates.
- Whether this statement is an initial determination or a redetermination.
This form may also may provide other information about your claim. It may include a message about why your claim is non-valid (not enough wages or hours). It may also say we are requesting wages and hours if you had federal employment, performed active duty for the military, or you told us you worked in another state in the last 18 months.
If your Wage and Potential Benefit Report shows your claim is non-valid because we are missing some of your base- year work, you can contact us and we will investigate your missing wages. If we are able to add wages to your claim, it will be redetermined and we will send you a new Wage and Potential Benefit Report with the updated information.
