If you have filed your own claim for unemployment, please allow 5-7
days for the claim to be
processed before attempting to claim weekly UI payments. You will receive an email confirming
your claim and providing next steps for requesting your payment.
Individuals who have applied for unemployment benefits must request a payment each week either online or by Interactive Voice Response (IVR). Benefit payments will only be made for requested weeks in which you have been determined to be allowed by a written determination and you have met all other eligibility requirements.
Unemployment benefits are paid by Direct Deposit or the Georgia UI Way2Go Debit MasterCard ®
