As of 2014, a person receives the first unemployment benefit check a few weeks after the initial claim. In some states, the recipient receives benefits after the first week of unemployment. Once an unemployment claim is approved, the claimant can file for payment weekly online, by phone or by mail. Regular unemployment benefits are paid for a maximum of 26 weeks in most states.
