To avoid payment delays during the week of Thanksgiving, claimants are encouraged to complete their weekly certification before the end of the day today, November 23 to ensure payment is processed prior to the holiday closures of the agency.

To better respond, we are making changes to the claimant system (MyBenefits portal) nightly from 11 pm – 3 am, and our system will not be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.
