Massachusetts Unemployment Continued Claims

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

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

1. Are actively 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 a new job.
5. Want to receive an unemployment check or payment this week.

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

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

after a recent laid off. I filed a claim and am currently collecting unemployment. If I take a full time 4 week independent contract project can I stop unemployment & refile as a continued claim after contract ends? Will it affect eligibility & amount, etc. when refiled?

I have been on unemployment for 13 weeks. I applied for a job c/o a local newspaper , so i did not know who the employer was. I was called for an interview Tuesday. I have not been offered the position-there are 2 more people. The job pays $10 per hour for 37 hours. The hours vary from days/nights/weekends, so I could not really find a second job that to supplement my income that easily. I don't have the info on the cost of medical etc. employee contribution, but even without that expense I can''t cover bills. I am single so there is no other income coming in (I have a home). I make more on unemployment. Do I have t take the job if it is offered? Will I lose unemployment if I don't take it? I am in Massachusetts.
