Why didn't i get my unemployment check?

by Cory

I called into the unemployment to file my claim on Wednesday. Like always. and come Friday there was no check deposited into my checking like usual. Why? and what number for Illinois could i call to figure this out?

Hi Cory,

I have no idea why your unemployment check wasn't direct deposited, but per your request .. I did look for something that might help you figure it out.

I found a PDF regarding direct deposits and there is a phone number listed in question #9.

I am needing to find out why I didn't get my My weekly claim deposit and I did my weekly claim on Monday

Hi Willard,

I suggest contacting the state unemployment office, since they wouldn't need to guess at the reason. My guesses, as to why you didn't have benefits deposited, would include checking for a new claim determination, or redetermination in your online UI account .. if you're certain the reason for no benefits was not because you exhausted the total weeks of benefits you were found initially eligible to receive.
