Georgia Unemployment Weekly Claims

In order to keep collecting an unemployment check every week you must file a weekly claim, also known as a weekly certification or continued claim.

The purpose of filing a weekly claim is to tell the unemployment agency that you:

  • Are currently looking for work
  • Have not done any work this week
  • Have not made any money this week
  • Have not found another job
  • Want to receive an unemployment check or payment this week

Therefore, it is very important to file your weekly claim every week to keep collecting your unemployment check.

If you delay in filing your weekly claim, you may not get your unemployment check in time.

  6. Candy says:

    Claimed unemployment this week(today, monday Nov23) it says it has been certified and will be processed the next busness day. Does this mean I will have the money on my card tomorrow. Or will it just be processed tomorrow for Wednesday.

    • Martin says:

      There is a difference between processed and disbursed.

      Since it is all system driven, you can look forward to having the monies in the bank account by mid week.
