Please note if you have not filed or reopened an unemployment claim you must do so before you can begin to visit Www.mass.gov/dua/webcert. In order to initiate an unemployment claim call 617-626-6800 or from area codes 508, 978, or 413, call 877-626-6800. Claimants outside of Massachusetts must call 617-626-6800.
And you may experience difficulty or delay with WebCert service on every Sunday (the first day for signing weekly benefits). If you can't visit the site normally, refesh the website and try it later.
