  • Continue certifying on your already established claim

  • Select the appropriate week in which you had your hours reduced

  • Provide eligibility info as required

  • No need to provide information for the weeks you did full time work -- only give information for the weeks where you lost work and are seeking financial help of benefits

If it's been beyond 120 days:

If your claim is over a year old:
