Re-applying for EI after completing a biweekly report

You can contact the Employment Insurance call center if you have a question regarding your benefits. The call center will verify your answer and clear any errors. Whether you filed by mail or online, you can access your report to check your status.
You will need an access code to file your biweekly report. Your Access Code is a four-digit number.
Once you have your Access Code, you can log into My Service Canada. Here, your current and past EI applications view personal information and deductions.
To file your online report, you must enter your SIN, province, and Access Code. It will then ask you to enter your banking and insurance information.
Filing by mail or telephone
If you are unemployed or self-employed, you will be expected to fill out an Employment Insurance (EI) report. This is a bi-weekly requirement that should be filed via mail or phone. The benefits are considered taxable income. A week’s worth of EI payments should arrive in a couple of days. In Canada, the processing of these claims is from Sunday to Thursday.
There is more to filing an EI report than just filling out a form. You should be aware of the reporting calendar to get the most out of your benefit. This will allow you to track your hours and make sure you are claiming all of your entitlements. You can also call the SSA if you are still determining whether you are entitled to the benefits you claim.
To be on the safe side, be sure to file an Employment Insurance report each week. If you are looking for a new job, you may also need to re-register for your benefits.
Exempt from reporting on EI benefits
