How to properly complete your E.I. bi-weekly report?

Once you have applied your Employment Insurance benefit. You will receive an Access Code, by mail, within a week of your application date. The Access Code letter will instruct you to complete a by-weekly report. You will have to log into Service Canada website to find out your first reporting date.

Remember, it is only by completing your E.I. report that you are assured to keep your claim in an active status before your E.I. claim is finalized with a decision. Then, you will be reimbursed  for the weeks you have completed your report. First week of your E.I. claim is considered a “waiting period” which is a none paid week. You may log into My Service Canada Account to view the status of your claim.

If you have lost or did not received your Access Code letter, make sure to call or visit Service Canada centre to received a temporary code. Not completing you report on time will result into disqualification of your E.I. benefit and you will have to re-apply again and may lose your benefit weeks.
