IMPORTANT: If you are filing a new Unemployment Insurance claim via phone or web, the day you should file is based on the first letter of your last name:

A-F: Monday
G-N: Tuesday
O-Z: Wednesday

If you missed your filing day, please claim on Thursday or Friday.

Filing later in the week will NOT delay your payments or affect the date of your claim, since all claims are effective on the Monday of the week in which they are filed.
