    Where do I check status of check

  2. Shelly Booker says:

    I had to go out of the country for a family emergency and was gone for about 7 weeks during which time I did not request my bi weekly checks. I am still unemployed at this time and back home. I have recently applied for SNAP and they are showing a balance owed to me from unemployment insurance. Can I still receive my money that I was approved for and if so what do I need to do to start the process?

    I was supposed to request my first Check on December 25 but was unable to do so. I have a part time job and did not have pay stub copies to enter in the correct gross for those weeks. I have now obtained those pay stubs and need to file. How do I do this since I have missed the date to file it?

      Call the local office. If you have worked at all since you applied, have gross earnings by week Sunday to Saturday, employer name, address and phone number and see if they will file your claim for the weeks you have been unable to.Did you try claimimg for these weeks online? You might try that first.

  13. heather says:

    I filed my bi-weekly claim today and it said it was processed but i havent recieved any kind of acceptance ketter yet does this mean im accepted? when will i recieve my check?

    • Baggie says:

      Right after filing your initial claim you would be asked to start your biweekly claims. It might take a week or two to process your documents before a determination letter is posted. Your biweekly claim is accepted but you might have to wait for the determination letter to know if you are accepted.
