Filing Your Claims by Mail. Mail your weekly claim card to your UC Claims Center as soon as you can AFTER the Saturday week ending date on the claim card. Use the UC Claims Center addresses listed on the back cover of Benefit Risghts Booklet (Page No-26). It is advantageous to file your claim as soon as possible after that Saturday date.

    I thought my filing was up to date. I get messed up sometimes due to getting paid bi-weekly. I have checked to see if there was a balance on my Chase card. there is zero balance. I will file again for the week of May 5-11. Sorry if it appears I’ve been negligent.
