When will I receive my first payment?

A decision will be made 4 to 6 weeks after filing your claim. If approved, please allow up to 72 hours for payment to process through direct deposit or on your TAP card.

For all initial claims, the first week you certify after filing is your "waiting week." You are not paid for this week unless you certify, and are eligible for 4 consecutive weeks. In the meantime, you may continue, completing your weekly certification on Jobs4TN
