Unemployment payment deadline pushed
Last Updated: 15:35 October 11, 2013
Many employers in the nine-county region that saw massive flooding (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Clear Creek, El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer, Logan and Weld) experienced damage to their business. To provide some temporary relief, the Division of Unemployment Insurance is extending the due date for these businesses to file wage reports and pay their third quarter premiums To Nov. 30.
Late penalties and/or interest normally accrued will be waived, as long as the premium/wage report for the third quarter report is filed and paid by the new date.
Businesses that are located outside of the covered disaster areas but whose records are maintained within the disaster area should contact the Division of Unemployment Insurance to discuss an extension and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Unemployment claims filed against flood-impacted businesses will not impact experience rating. The flooding forced many businesses to temporarily shut down and lay off employees. Businesses that have seen unemployment claims filed against them as a result of the disaster will not be charged and their unemployment experience rating will not be impacted.
Impacted businesses should call 303-318-9100 or 1-800-480-8299 (outside Denver-metro area) and press option 5 for more information.
Businesses impacted in any of the other areas that have received the governor's disaster declaration should call 303-318-9100 to discuss relief options available.
