Utah Unemployment Weekly Claims

You must file weekly claims to receive benefits. To file a weekly claim, you will need your Social Security Number and your Personal Identification Number (PIN). The unemployment claim week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday at midnight. It is advised to file your claim on Sunday or as soon as possible after the Saturday week-ending date. You can file your weekly claim online. Select “Unemployment Benefits”, and then choose “File Weekly Claim.”

You will be asked for your PIN each time you use the system. Your PIN is the four-digit number you selected when you established your claim.

Each week you must answer questions to determine your eligibility for benefits. Failure to file a weekly claim in a timely manner could result in a denial of benefits. The system will not permit late filing. If you wait 21 or more calendar days after the Saturday week-ending date to file a benefit week, your claim will be late and will be closed. If you wish to continue filing, you will need to reopen your claim either online by calling the Claims Center.


Questions & Answers

    I filed my 1st week yesterday (Sunday 10/15/2017). I did not see a way to enter information on my job searches. I also applied to 2 or more through your site, but see no way to confirm that to you, either. I was told someone would call me to discuss my case due to problems during online setup causing multiple entries of the company I own, but from which I’ve taken no money. No one has called. I’m on hold right now with you but it says 58 minute wait. Please have someone call me.
