Wyoming Unemployment Insurance Benefits Guide

Last update:

Looking for tips to access the Wyoming Unemployment Insurance Benefits? 

In this article, we will make Unemployment Insurance Benefits easy to understand with Wyoming Unemployment phone numbers and other contact information.

We understand.

The experience of unemployment is often fraught with anxiety and feelings of worthlessness. Not being able to provide for oneself and one’s family can be very difficult, and the stress of the situation can be overwhelming. 

Those who are unemployed may feel like they are a burden to their loved ones, and they may feel like they are not good enough or valuable enough. It is important to remember that you are not alone in this experience, and there are people who care about you and want to help. 

You are valuable, even if you are not working at the moment. There are many resources available to you, so please do not hesitate to reach out for help.

Why did we create the Wyoming Unemployment Insurance Benefits Guide?

Government websites can be difficult to navigate for a lot of people. They may be confusing or hard to use, and they may not have all the information people need. This can be frustrating and overwhelming, especially for people who are already struggling. 

Having said that, please use our guide as support but NOT the official guide. You will NEED to contact the official unemployment government staff and fight for your own benefits. You can do this.

Who’s in charge of Wyoming Unemployment Insurance Benefits?

Workforce Standards, Policy and Communications, and Workforce Programs are the three main sections of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services (DWS).

For unemployment-related difficulties, you can contact the Workforce Programs Division.

Below is what its official website looks like.

How Do I Apply for Wyoming Unemployment Benefits?

Workers in Wyoming can file an unemployment insurance claim online through the Wyoming Unemployment Insurance System’s website. Applicants can easily create an account and use the online form to submit their UI benefit claims.

Residents of Wyoming can also make claims by phoning the Wyoming Claims Center at 307-473-3789. Claimants who live outside of Wyoming can contact 866-729-7799 to file a UI claim over the phone or apply online.

When filing an unemployment claim, you’ll need the following information:

  • Name, address, and phone number for your most recent employer
  • Date of the last day you worked
  • For any work completed outside of Wyoming over the previous 18 months, contact information and dates for those employers and periods of work
  • Your Social Security number

How do I Manage My Wyoming Unemployment Benefits

Once you’ve been authorized for benefits, you’ll get them on a weekly basis until you either return to work or run out of options. Every week, you’ll need to recertify, which you may do online, over the phone, or by mail. If you opt to send your papers, you will get a pay order document every two weeks.

You may designate the days for which you should get weekly benefits on this page and mail or fax it to Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, Unemployment Insurance Division, P.O. Box 2468, Casper, Wyoming, 82601 or 307-473-3726. Claims must be submitted by the Friday following the pay order’s week-ending date.

In Wyoming, unemployment benefits are distributed through a ReliaCard prepaid debit card offered by US Bank. Your weekly rewards will be placed into this card, which you may use just like any other debit card.

You can manage your payment method through your WYUI online account if you wish to have your benefits paid straight into your bank account.

How Do I Appeal a Wyoming Unemployment Decision?

You have the right to file an appeal if your unemployment claim is refused. In Wyoming, you can do so by sending a signed declaration indicating you disagree with the decision to the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Division at the address or fax number indicated on your decision letter, or by using the online appeal form on the WYUI website.

You can also hand-deliver your appeal statement to any Wyoming Workforce Center. Your refusal letter will offer detailed directions for submitting an appeal.

The decision of your appeal may result in a hearing, which is the time for you to substantiate your claim with additional testimony and evidence. You may also invite witnesses to testify on your behalf. 

A hearing officer will deliver a decision after the hearing, and if you wish to appeal, you may appeal to the Unemployment Insurance Commission within 28 days.

How Do I Report a Wyoming Unemployment Fraud?

Making any false statement or misrepresentation of facts in order to collect or raise the amount of unemployment benefit is considered fraud. Any applicant who gets benefits in a false manner is required to refund the benefits, as well as pay a penalty. 

Applicants who submit false information will be barred from obtaining any future unemployment benefits. There’s also the possibility of getting charged with fraud.

Any of the three procedures listed below can be used to report suspected unemployment fraud:

  • Call the General Fraud Hotline at 888-996-9226
  • Complete the form on the Wyoming Workforce website at http://doe.state.wy.us/uifraudreporting/
  • Print out, complete, and mail or deliver the fraud reporting form to the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, Unemployment Insurance Division – BPC, PO Box 2760, Casper, Wyoming, 82602-2760

What if I got fired?

You may be disqualified for benefits if the employer can prove you were discharged for work-related misconduct. An employer must prove misconduct before you are eligible for benefits.

What if I quit?

In general, you are not eligible if you leave your work freely.

If you quit for “good cause,” though, you may be able to collect. The state unemployment office determines what constitutes good reason, and you can make your case for getting benefits.

You should be entitled to a hearing if your claim is denied so that you can explain your claim. You should contact your local office because regulations and conditions differ from state to state.
