Mississippi Unemployment Weekly Claims

Weekly claim certifications can be filed online. Failure to file your weekly claim certification in a timely manner as instructed will affect your benefits. A week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday. You must file your weekly claims certification after the week has ended, but before the next week begins at 12:01 am on Sunday.

Example: If you are filing for week-ending June 9, 2013, you must file online before 12:01 am on Sunday, June 17, 2013.

Weekly Claim Certification filing Online

You may file your current weekly claim certification online through MDES’ ACCESS MS system. You must login with your user id and password or establish a new user id and password if you are not a current user. You may file online outside normal business hours.

You must also file a weekly claim, and certify weekly as to your eligibility. If you are working for an employer less than full time because of lack of work and your earnings are less than your weekly benefit amount plus $40.00, you may be eligible for benefits.

While filing weekly claims for benefits, you will periodically be scheduled to report to your local WIN Job Center for reemployment services appointments. You should report to all appointments as scheduled unless you have returned to full time work. Failure to report for scheduled reemployment services appointments could result in a delay or denial of your benefits.

Note: Notify the call center if you change your address.
