Restart your claim

After missing one or more weeks of benefits, you can restart your claim online. You can also call the claims center at 800-318-6022 and use the automated system (12:00 a.m. Sunday – 4:00 p.m. Friday, unless Friday is a holiday) or speak with a claims agent (Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. except holidays). People with hearing or speaking impairments can call Washington Relay Service 711.

You must restart your claim during the first week you want to begin claiming benefits, even though you cannot claim that week until it's over. Remember to start submitting your weekly claims again the following week.
