www.Njuifile.net – File An Unemployment Benefits Claim Online

October 1, 2013

Njuifile.net is the site to go to, if you want to make an unemployment claim, and if you are a resident of New Jersey or otherwise eligible for the state’s unemployment insurance benefits.


Initiating the process of making an unemployment claim

Before the advent of sites like njuifile.net, making an unemployment claim would be a time-consuming, energy-sapping undertaking, which would involve visits to offices manned by lethargic bureaucrats. Njuifile.net was set up to make the process of making such an unemployment claim more convenient. In order to initiate the process of making an unemployment claim, you need to log on to njuifile.net, (which redirects to https://njsuccess.dol.state.nj.us/html/uimain.html).  Once there, look towards the middle section and you will see a link labeled ‘file or reopen your UI claim’ accompanied by a folder graphic. Click on it, and you will be on your way to accessing your benefits (if you are eligible for them). This is the process to follow, whether what you are making is a fresh claim, or if you are seeking to reopen an old claim.

What happens after making or reopening a claim?

What actually happens, after you make or reopen a claim at njuifile.net is that the claim is scrutinized. The idea is to figure out whether, in the first place, you are eligible for the unemployment insurance benefits administered by the New Jersey State Department of Labor and Workforce Development. If you are indeed qualified, there is also a process to figure out just how much, in terms of cash, you should receive. The results of this processing are accessible at njuifile.net. You can check them by going to njuifile.net, and clicking on the ‘claim status’ link.

What you can do once your claim goes through

Once your claim goes through, you can start enjoying the benefits that accrue to you by virtue of it. To put it more specifically, you can start claiming your weekly benefits. Again, this is something you do at njuifile.net. The process is intuitive, really: as it simply involves going to the homepage of njuifile.net, clicking on the ‘claim your weekly benefits’ link, and furnishing the site with the information it subsequently requests from you.

Accessing the actual cash

Long ago, the system used to work in such a manner that you’d have to wait for a check to be mailed for you, and then deposit the check with your bank, in order to ultimately get the cash. Not any more. Today, there is the option of getting a direct deposit, which means that the money is, say, loaded directly onto a Visa or MasterCard debit card, from where you can withdraw it through an ATM.
