How long does it take to receive the first unemployment payment after filing?

In the state of Maryland, I can't find any info on how long it takes to process an application or how long it can take for the first benefit week to be paid.

Your first payment will represent one week of benefits and each payment thereafter will usually cover two weeks of benefits. Maryland has a bi-weekly claim processing system; you will receive a payment every two weeks, with the exception of the first week for which you claim benefits. Visit http://www.dllr.state.md.us/employment/claimfaq.shtml for more details.

Thank you, but how long does it take to receive that first weeks benefit payment? I think what Candykiss said makes sense, but I have no experience with unemployment, so I have no clue.

It takes about a month to get your first payment ... Then there every week..the first payment is the biggest payment....
