    In Illinois it is bi-weekly, If you are on unemployment in Illinois you will receive a letter along with your check and the next day you have to file; but it's every other week here.

    Yes, I believe so. Every state that I know of you have to claim benefits weekly. Some by phone, some online, some in person still. But you must do it every week to get your check.
