New Jersey Unemployment Weekly Certification

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

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

1. Are currently looking for a job.
2. Did not do any work this week.
3. Did not make any money this week (unless you are allowed to by the terms of your unemployment.)
4. Did not find another job.
5. Still want to receive an unemployment check or payment this week.

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

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

I've been filing a NJ claim since May with no problems until this week, when I was let go from a freelance job after working for a month. The "system" did not pay me for the week (ending Nov. 3) that I did not work, and noted an agent would have to review my claim before it could be processed. Is this typical when someone works for a few weeks and then is let go?
