Regular Unemployment Claimants


You filed a regular unemployment claim if you had at least $2,500 in W-2 wages in the last 18 months. 

You were sent a four-digit PIN to access your claim using the following services:

  • Request payment
  • Manage your unemployment claim
  • View your account balance
  • Update your address and personal information

  • Receive your unemployment benefit payments through direct deposit
  • Change back to the debit card

Reopen your claim if:

  • Have become unemployed again
  • Requested payment too early or late
  • Stopped filing for any reason (such as you started working again)
  • Need to report a new job separation

Are you waiting for your PIN?

Under normal circumstances, your PIN will be mailed to you the next business day after you file your claim. Due to the current high volume of claims, however, there has been a delay in processing those requests. If you have not received a PIN within 7 to 10 business days after filing your claim, please use this form to request a new PIN.


If you filed a new regular unemployment claim, but need to request that the effective date be moved back to when you stopped working, complete this request form.
