Alabama Unemployment Weekly Claims
After you are determined as eligible to receive unemployment benefits, you will have to proceed to step 2. Here, you have to fulfill certain requirements each week after which you will receive your unemployment pay check. This is called weekly certification. It is in place to ensure you are in constant search to get back to work.
When you file your certification for weekly benefits, you will be instructed to answer the questions truthfully.
When all the information has been entered and verified, you will be told that your certification has been accepted and is being processed. You must wait for this response to insure that all your answers have been recorded. If one or more of your answers is potentially disqualifying, you will be instructed to call the Call Center Inquiry Line for a fact-finding interview.
If you choose to stop filing weekly claim certifications for any reason, your claim becomes inactive. You will be notified about the break in your claim series when you make your weekly call. If you fail to follow the instructions provided, it may result in a loss of benefits. If you have failed to call for at least two weeks or more, you will have to reopen your claim.
Weekly continued claim certifications may be filed Sunday through Friday. To be considered timely, you must file your weekly certification no later than 5PM each friday.
Please note that you can be penalized for giving inaccurate or false information to obtain unemployment benefits.
