null How can I find out if my benefit payment has been issued?

You can obtain information concerning the status of your claim anytime online by selecting the CHECK YOUR CLAIM STATUS option, or by selecting option "1" through the weekly claim phone line. You will be able to get information about:

  • The last three weeks you claimed.
  • Date and amount of your benefit payment and the amount of benefits remaining.
  • If a benefit payment was not issued, the system may be able to tell you the reason.
  • If the amount of your benefit payment is reduced because of earnings, pension, child support deduction or any other reason, the system will tell you the amount of the deduction and the reason for it.
