We are aware that some eligible claimants have reported they have not received their payment for last week. Please know that depending on your payment method and your financial institution it may take 48-72 hours for your benefits to show up in your bank account or on a debit card.

We make nightly changes to the claimant system (MyBenefits Portal) from 11 pm – 3 am, and the system will be temporarily unavailable during this time.
