File Your Weekly Certification

You must submit a Weekly Certification after each week for which you would like to receive benefits. The Weekly Certification is a series of questions that helps verify that you were able, available, and looking for work that week.

The most efficient way to file your weekly certification (or weekly claim for benefits) is to file online.

Do Not Wait!

You should begin filing your Weekly Certifications the week after submitting your initial application.  You MUST file a Weekly Certification within 14 days after each week of unemployment in order to receive unemployment insurance payments. You should file Weekly Certifications even while you are waiting to learn if you are eligible for benefits.

The fastest and most efficient way to file your Weekly Certifications is online.

If you fail to complete a timely Weekly Certification, you will:

  • NOT receive payment for the week; 
  • Be required to reopen your claim; and
  • Be required to serve an additional non-payable waiting week.
