I filed my unemployment claim on June 4th. and I haven’t heard back from them. Is there any way I can check to see what’s the problem? Please advise.

A) If you filed your unemployment claim on June 4th and haven’t heard back, there are a few steps you can take to check the status of your claim. Here’s what you can do:

1. **Check the online filing system**: The best way to check the status of your claim is through the online filing system provided by the Department of Labor. If you already have a claim, you can go to labor.ny.gov/signin to make weekly certifications or view your claim information.

2. **Contact your state’s unemployment insurance program**: You should contact your state’s unemployment insurance program as soon as possible after becoming unemployed. Depending on the state, claims may be filed in person, by telephone, or online. They will be able to provide you with information about the status of your claim and any potential issues that may have arisen.

3. **Be patient**: It’s important to note that processing times for unemployment claims can vary. The Department of Labor states that it can take three to six weeks from the time you file your claim to receive your first payment, as they need to review and process your application for benefits.

4. **Consider reaching out**: If you haven’t received any updates or payments after a reasonable amount of time, you may want to consider reaching out to the unemployment office directly. Calling them daily and expressing your concerns may help expedite the process, although it’s important to note that it may not guarantee a faster resolution.

Remember, the processing times for unemployment claims can vary, and any surge in applications may have caused delays in processing. It’s always a good idea to stay informed about the specific procedures and requirements of your state’s unemployment insurance program.

I hope this information helps, and I wish you the best of luck with your unemployment claim!
