In order to be paid your weekly benefits, you will need to submit a continued claim. To be timely, you must wait until the week has ended and must file within 14 days of the claim week-end date.
You can submit a continued claim online at wyui.wyo.gov or you can do it over the phone using the automated phone system, which is available to you 24 hours a day.
To submit a continued claim on wyui.wyo.gov, you will follow this path: click Continued Claim » File Continued Claim. Then you must honestly answer all of the questions according to your personal employment situation.
To access the automated phone system, call (307) 473-3789. You will need to listen to the automated introduction and then you will have access to the system. In order to file a continued claim over the phone using the automated phone system, you will need your Unemployment PIN number.
Please remember: Letting others file using your PIN is fraud, as is letting others use your online username and password.
How do I know if my continued claim has been submitted?
The best way to know if your claim has been submitted is to check your Unemployment account online at wyui.wyo.gov. Here is the path: Click on Inquiry » Benefits » Claimant/Claim Inquiry.

It is imperative to check your Correspondence tab EVERY time you complete a continued claim. The correspondence tab contains valuable information related to your claim. By checking your correspondence tab on a regular basis, you will be able to have the most updated and accurate information related to your claim.

Methods of Filing Weekly Claims
There are three ways to file your weekly claims:
The Wyoming Telephone Claim System is an automated phone system designed to allow you to file your weekly claim for unemployment insurance or to inquire about the payment status of your claim. You have the choice of hearing the words spoken in either English or Spanish.
To file your weekly claim by phone, call (307) 473-3789.
File your weekly claim for unemployment insurance online, 24/7. Should the system be unavailable, you will receive a “system down” message and should either try again later or use one of the other methods for filing your weekly continued claim or certification.
