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

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

  1. Are currently looking for work.
  2. Have not done any work this week.
  3. Have not made any money this week (unless you are allowed to by the terms of your unemployment)
  4. Have not found another job.
  5. Want to receive an unemployment check or payment this week.

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

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

  1. Please help i am confused about the weekly request for benefit question..
    “were you laid off this week due to lack of work?”
    I was laid off last April due to lack of work..yes
    I was not laid this week due to lack of work. No
    I have been continually laid off up until and through to this week. Yes
    WHAT ARE THEY ASKING HERE? cause i think i just screwed up my request by saying NO.

  2. Hi, I just got my first payment today. It included $0 for the waiting week and one week’s worth of unemployment. Will I eventually be paid the waiting week?

    • Bill,

      As much as I know, there is no payment made for the waiting week. Please call the Unemployment Office.

  3. 42 continuous years employed and I have never filed for unemployment. I expect to get laid off on April 1, 2019. How soon after I file a claim will I start receiving benefits? Thank you.

    • Daniel,

      You can apply for UI benefits immediately after your last working day. Generally, it takes 7-10 business days for the processing (waiting week).

      Best wishes!

  4. I an trying to report hours worked and cannot open pdf ,are we supposed to mail it in or what I am confused

    • Steve,

      I am guessing faxing it should be enough unless you’ve been asked to share it through other channels as well. Please call the Claims Center for clarification.

  5. I lost the pin # letter and am trying to get ahold of someone with Colorado’s unemployment office. I have until Saturday and then my claim will be closed. I am in desperate need to speak to someone and it has been impossible via the cub line. I have tried all hours of the day for more than a week. Please help!

    • I can understand the urgency. The other options you can explore is to visit an Unemployment Office in the vicinity or try to see if have an option on the official website to reset or request a PIN.

  6. I am receiving unemployment but I was able to work few hours at my job last week. I am very confused on how to report these wages, I found the log for wages, but I don’t know if I need to mail it somewhere or if there is somewhere to report it online. I cannot get through to the UI office in Denver to ask questions so I hope someone can help explain what to do.

    • Unfortunately, we do not have any information in this regard. Please keep trying the phone numbers during off peak hours.

      You can also scout for relevant information on the official website or look for more phone numbers there.

  7. Does unemployment cover a job that doesn’t make enough to pay rent… so have to quit work to find one that I can stop being homeless?

  8. I was checking to see why my unemployment check has not come to me for the week of 02/02/2014. It is my understanding I am to recieve $529.00 every week. Can someone help me in getting this resolved so I can keep up with my bills.
