Residents in the state using the NJ UI File Claim Weekly Benefits system should expect about a 5 minute (or less) claiming process in which they will have to certify that they have not found a job in order to collect their weekly unemployment payment .  Residents can also view or print 1099G Tax Information online and check on the status of a NJ UI claim that is under review.  Those who do not have a pay stub or their work week is different from our Sunday to Saturday claim week will be required to calculate their gross wages in order to report them AND residents who collect unemployment payments when they should not will have to pay the full amount back PLUS interest.  Once the person acquires a full-time job their benefits will stop (partial unemployment insurance benefits may be available for some depending on when they officially started their new position).
