New York Unemployment Weekly Claims

In order to receive benefits every week, you must continue to file for UI, this is called weekly certification or continued claim. The purpose of filing weekly claim is to let the state know that-

  • You are still unemployed
  • You are available, willing and physically capable of doing full time work
  • You continue to meet the eligibility requirements laid down by the state
  • You did not have any income during that week

    1. You will find this option online when you log-in to the official portal.

      Alternatively, you can also call the Claims Center and speak to a representative for further instructions.
