The current certification schedule is below. Please locate the schedule for your assigned day based on the last four digits of your Social Security number (SSN).

If you miss your scheduled time earlier in the day, there is a make-up window later in the afternoon. Saturday certifications will be suspended until early May to accommodate planned system maintenance. Friday remains the "make-up day" for all claimants.

Before you certify for benefits, you must read our step-by-step guide to certifying a COVID-19-related Unemployment Insurance claim.

(If you are filing a new claim or reopening an existing claim, you can do so online anytime.)
