    Wyoming Unemployment Questions

    How do I get paid?
    Timely file weekly claims.
    • Once you file your first pay order, the pay order for the next two week period is mailed to you.
    • Pay orders are for a two week time period. After the two week period is over you can file for payment of those weeks by phone, by Internet, or by mail. Follow the filing instructions in the blue book.

    When do I get paid?
    Once a weekly claim has been filed and received, payment is normally mailed that same week.

    How do I stop filing?
    If you return to work and wish to stop filing for benefits, indicate this on your payorder or stop submitting pay orders.

    What is a PIN number and how do I use it?
    You use your PIN to file for benefits using Wyoming's Voice Response or Internet Continued Claim systems. A PIN is a number that should only be known by you. A PIN has the same force and effect as a manual signature. If a claimant knowingly allows another person to use their PIN, the claimant is responsible for the information provided to the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, Unemployment Insurance Division.
