The NYS DOL states that the claimant’s first payment will generally be made two to three weeks from the time they filed their claim, although for many, especially PUA cases, it is taking longer. Claims filed will be backdated to the date the claimant became unemployed. If the claimant is eligible, they will be paid for all benefits due.
