May I cancel my claim?

(1) You will be allowed to cancel your claim within thirty days of the date you applied for benefits if no payment has been issued to you on the claim. The department will advise you of the advantages and disadvantages of canceling a claim.
(2) At his or her discretion, the commissioner may permit cancellation of a claim beyond thirty days of the date you applied for benefits, but only in extreme and unusual circumstances. The denial of a request to cancel a claim beyond thirty days of the date of application is not subject to appeal.
(3) You will not be allowed to cancel your claim if benefits have been paid on the claim, unless the department filed the claim in error.
(4) As provided in RCW 50.20.160, if the department has denied your benefits before canceling your claim, the denial will remain in effect. The department will not make a new decision based on the same issue in a subsequent claim.
