When Does My Claim Begin?

Your claim will start with the Sunday of the week in which you first file your claim if you are totally unemployed or employed part time and earn less than your benefit rate. This begins your Benefit Year. The Benefit Year is a 52 week period. In instances when a subsequent claim would cause base periods to overlap, the benefit year is 53 weeks. Any additional claims (re­files) you submit during this period will have the same Benefit Year.
