This chart supplies a year-over-year comparison of the adjudication workload. Note: The chart may take a few seconds to render and is not supported by the Internet Explorer (IE) browser.
On December 30, 2020, DWD reached a workload comparable to seasonal pre-pandemic levels and had either resolved or assigned out to an adjudicator all issues that were more than 21 days old, effectively clearing the unemployment insurance backlog. The UI Division measures its workload by looking at the number of pending eligibility issues that had not yet been scheduled to an adjudicator at the end of the previous week. Adjudicators are assigned eligibility issues that need to be investigated to determine whether a claimant is due benefits.
|Appeals Pending Scheduling||16,387|
