Connecticut Unemployment Weekly Claims

In order to continue obtaining an unemployment check each 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
  4. Have not found another job
  5. Want to obtain an unemployment check or payment this week

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