New Jersey Unemployment Weekly Claims

In order to keep receiving an unemployment check every week you must file a weekly claim or continued claim or weekly certification.

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

  • Are presently looking for a job
  • Did not do any work this week
  • Did not make any money this week
  • Did not find another job
  • Still want to receive an unemployment check or payment this week

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

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