Texas Unemployment Weekly Claims

During each week you claim benefits, you must:

Make an active search for full-time work, unless TWC (Texas Workforce Commission) lets you off from this requirement

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

  • Are physically able to work
  • Are available for full-time work
  • Are Applying for and accepting suitable work
  • 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 claims every week to keep receiving your unemployment check.

If you holdup in filing your weekly claims, you may not get your unemployment check on time.
