Making Weekly Unemployment Benefit Claims in Georgia
Approval of your initial claim for unemployment benefits is just the beginning of the unemployment compensation process for you. You need to file weekly claims (in most states; some states require bi-weekly filings) with Georgia Department of Labor to keep receiving benefit payments. The Georgia Department of Labor describes the weekly claim-filing requirements in its Unemployment Insurance: Claimant Handbook. The Georgia agency website also has instructions on how to file for weekly benefits.
