      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.

    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.
