SUNDAY CERTIFIERS: If you missed your time slot on June 13 due to system maintenance, you should certify on Friday during the time slot for your Social Security number (Friday is the make-up day for all claimants).


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).

Saturday certifications are currently suspended due to 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.)
