  • Look for it around Friday or Saturday, provided you filled everything out right. DON'T make mistakes! That will delay your check. Been there done that with my husband.

    There is an 800 number for checking the status of your's on the EDD website.

  • Are you able to file online? In Wisconsin you can file your weekly claims on line and if you do so on Sunday, your check is to you by Tuesday.

  • In Arkansas if you file on Sunday or Monday you get your check by wednesday!

  • California lets you file the initial claim online, but after that you have to mail in a form every other week.

    Go figure. The state that birthed Silicon Valley is still in the dark ages on this.

  • In Illinois, the first week is unpaid. If you filed online, you should be able to track online.

  • When my husband was getting unemployment, he'd turn it in EARLY on Sunday morning (online) and the check would come Tuesday. If he could not get through til sunday afternoon or even Monday, the check would arrive Wednesday.
