NOTE: Only Sunday is different from last week's schedule. On Sunday, certifications start at 7am and end at 7pm to accommodate scheduled system maintenance. The other days remain unchanged. If you miss your scheduled time earlier in the day, there is a make-up window later in the afternoon. Saturday is still the "make-up day" for all claimants, with the same afternoon make-up window as during the week.

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 Saturday.

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.)
