Colorado Unemployment Weekly Claim

In order to keep receiving an unemployment check every week you must file a weekly claim, also known as a weekly certification or continued claim.

The purpose of filing a weekly claim is to tell the unemployment agency that you:

1. Are currently looking for work.
2. Have not done any work this week.
3. Have not made any money this week (unless you are allowed to by the terms of your unemployment.)
4. Have not found another job.
5. Want to receive an unemployment check or payment this week.

Therefore, it is very important to file your weekly claim every week to keep receiving your unemployment check.

If you delay in filing your weekly claim, you may not get your unemployment check on time.

I was recently offered a job (thank God) and accepted, but did not start it on the planned hire date. The state's My UI >> Claimant Information>>General Info page on their website for 'self-management' shows my claim status as "Postponed".

What, exactly does that mean?
Thanks for your help (because 'they' don't!

I have received unemployment for a two week period previously but when I filed for the most recent period (reporting off work first week but worked the second week of the period) I was not paid for the week I did not work. Does working any of the two week period disallow payment the other week of not working?

I was terminated after giving my boss the courtesy of telling him I was looking for another job. An unemployment officer called me yesterday and asked me some questions. He thanked me for my side of the story. Now the website says my claim status is "posrponed". What does that mean? The unemployment officer said I would receive a decision letter in the mail within ten days. Does this mean I am not getting approved? If I am approved, why not just release the benefit money?
