Welcome to the State Of Unemployment Insurance online filing system.
This post is part of a series to help guide you through the online filing process for unemployment insurance benefits.
On prior tutorial articles we showed you how to register as a new claimant and how to apply for benefits. If you have completed these steps, you are ready to learn how to make a weekly claim for unemployment benefits.
To receive a weekly payment, you must file a claim each week. You cannot file a weekly claim until the week is over. Weeks begin on Sunday and end on Saturday just as they appear on most calendars.
Weekly Benefits Claim Process – Step by Step
To begin the process of making your weekly claim, visit ui.nv.gov. You can do it from here:
Click on the link: “Existing Claimant Sign In”, which is on the top right of the page.
Enter your username and press “continue” and then enter your password and press “enter”, you may be asked to answer some of the questions in your personal security profile.
File Weekly Claim
Click the “File Weekly Claim” link:
This link will only appear if a weekly claim is available. Read all the information on the “Important Information” screen before continuing to the next step.
The next screen shows the dates of the week in which you are claiming:
