When a claim for benefits is filed, a statement is taken from the claimant. If additional information is needed, a Notice of Claim Filed and Request for Separation Information (LB-0810) form letter is mailed to the separating employer requesting information on the reason for separation. This form letter includes one of a set of questionnaires that are specific to a particular issue.
It is very important for employers to return the reason for separation information promptly; otherwise, the claimant’s eligibility determination must be based upon the claimant’s statement and any other available information. If we do not have the employer’s separation information, an otherwise ineligible claimant, could receive benefits and the employer charged for those benefits.
