Claims for benefits are filed for calendar weeks, beginning on Sunday and ending on Saturday. To be paid benefits, you must file a weekly claim each week after the week has ended.

In the alternative, you may file through the Weekly Claims Line, which uses an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system to collect the information necessary to pay you benefits each week:

Be sure you have your Social Security Number and your Personal Identification Number If you had earnings during the week you are claiming, or you received or will receive vacation, holiday or severance pay for the week, be sure you know the gross amount before you call.
