How do I know if I should file a wage protest?
- If your claim is missing wages or has incorrect wages in your base period.
- If your claim was determined monetarily ineligible.
To check your base period wages:
From your dashboard, located under "My Benefits Plan", select "View Your Benefits Plan".After you select "View Your Benefits Plan", you will then scroll down the page until you see "Employers and Income During Base Period". This shows you the wages you have earned from your employer in each quarter of the base period.
When should I not file a wage protest?
- You should NOT file a wage protest if you have wages that are outside of the current base period.
- You should NOT file a wage protest if you have out of state wages, a federal claim, or a military claim (listed below is the required documents for each of these).
- For Out of State Wages, you must provide check stubs or W2 forms from the state that you worked in; outside of Tennessee (email this form to Nashville.firstname.lastname@example.org).
- For Military claims, you must provide the agency with the most current DD214 member 4 (email this form to email@example.com).
- For Federal claims, you must provide copies of your form SF-8 or SF-50, to cover wages for the entire base period up to the time of separation (email this for to firstname.lastname@example.org).
