SCHEDULE CHANGE FOR SATURDAY, 11/28: The certification schedule has returned to its normal timeframe of 8am - 7pm.

SCHEDULE CHANGE FOR MONDAY, 11/30: Due to monthly maintenance, Monday's certification schedule now ends at 7pm. Please check carefully to find the time slot for your Social Security number.


The current certification schedule is below. If you miss your scheduled time earlier in the day, there is a make-up window later in the afternoon. Friday and Saturday are the "make-up days" for all claimants.

Please locate the schedule for your assigned day based on the last four digits of your Social Security Number (SSN). All SSNs are assigned time slots on Friday and Saturday.

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