Check for time-sensitive notices during your holiday break

During the holiday break, it’s important to make arrangements to check district mail for time-sensitive unemployment and workers’ compensation notices and forms. If you wait to respond until after the break, you may be subject to a penalty or waive important rights to contest benefits. To avoid those problems, be sure someone takes a few minutes each day to check the mail.
