I know that if you are collecting Unemployment benefits in New York State for example. You can go to the website and check on the status of when your payment was released, or when it is due to be released. You should have a similar website that can be accessed through the Dept. of Labor in N.J. Also if you did not certify for benefits on the day that you supposed to. For example on a Sunday, and you certified on Tuesday, than you may have to wait until the following week to get paid for this week. Again, it all depends on the labor dept. in your state. I would give them a call on the 800 number they provide, and ask a representative for further feedback in reference to your question.
Hope that helps you.
