A letter or form from your employer indicating why you are no longer employed. Not all employers provide these upon separation. If you are terminated and walk off the job without being processed through HR, it’s possible you won’t get one unless your employer sends it to your mailing address. I recommend you always try to get a separation letter any time you can. If you are laid off through no fault of your own, your HR manager or boss typically will provide a separation notice because they know you will probably file for Unemployment Benefits and that form lets you know how they will answer your claim. Typically, it will indicate the date you were hired, the date your employment was terminated and the reason for the separation.
The CARES Act provides that the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) $600 weekly supplement is payable for weeks ending April 4, 2020 through July 25, 2020. FPUC is subject to deductions for federal and state tax withholdings, child support and overpayment recoveries. At this time, it has not been extended or approved for reduction.
This is for self employed individuals who otherwise would not qualify for regular unemployment compensation. If you have proof of income through a 1099 or other tax documents you may be eligible for PUA. You cannot apply for PUA unless you are denied UI.

If you still cannot access your claim, and are locked out completely. DM me and I can help you get a call back so a claim rep at the DOL can assist you with resetting it.
Your employer may have filed your claim, in hopes to make the process smoother for you to receive your benefits. If you have questions about your claim, you should ask them and they can make inquiries on your behalf through their employer account in the employer portal. They can email the DOL with any questions about your claim.
Thanks for your understanding.
