If you opened your claim between March 15 and March 21: We are working quickly to mail a PIN to you so you can file for benefits. In case you did not receive your PIN by Saturday, 4/4, you will still be able to file for claim weeks 3/21, 3/28, and 4/4 through 9 p.m. on 4/11/20. From the time when you are first able to file your biweekly claims, continue filing every other week as long as you are still unemployed.
If you opened your claim between March 22 and March 28: Your first day to file will be Sunday, April 5, 2020. If you have not yet received your PIN, you will have the opportunity to file for your benefits for an additional two weeks. We will make sure that claim weeks ending 3/28, 4/4, 4/11, and 4/18 are available for you to complete your “biweekly” claims through 9 p.m. on 4/24/20. From the time when you are first able to file your biweekly claims, continue filing every other week as long as you are still unemployed.
Claims opened March 29 and later: We will be ensuring that you are also able to file “biweekly” for four weeks back, instead of just two, to ensure you do not miss benefits for any weeks while you wait for your PIN to arrive.
