A claimant for unemployment insurance who has been denied benefits, may file
an appeal of that denial to the Appeals Division. An employer may appeal a determination granting benefits to
a former employee. You may appeal and request a hearing on the facts. The appeal must be filed in writing and
must be filed within 15 calendar days from the date the determination was mailed. All appeals must be in
writing and submitted by mail or fax. The address to file your appeal is:
1100 N. Eutaw Street, Room 505
Baltimore, MD 21201
Telephone # 410-767-2421
Fax # 410-225-9781.
The last date to file an appeal as well as the address to which the
appeal should be filed is printed on both monetary and non-monetary determinations. Your signature must be
included on the request for appeal. Appeals cannot be filed by E-mail. DO NOT FILE AN APPEAL FROM AN INITIAL
BENEFIT DETERMINATION TO THE BOARD OF APPEALS.
If an appeal is filed, a hearing will be held by a Hearing Examiner, who will then issue a written decision.
That decision is appealable by a claimant, an employer or the Department to the Board of Appeals.
