I reached my Benefit Year End (BYE) day. What are my next steps?
Last updated: March 17, 2021
Regular unemployment insurance (UI) claims have a duration of one year. When you file a claim, you are given a Benefit Year Ending (BYE) code that indicates when your claim lasts until. Once you reach this date, you are required to file a new claim to have your eligibility re-determined. If you’ve earned over a certain amount in the past year, you will need to be switched onto the new claim.Click here to file a new claim
