PA Unemployment Biweekly Claim Phone Number?

How do I file an unemployment biweekly claim in PA?
After I do it correctly, when should I expect PA Unemployment to direct deposit money into my account?
Please let me know what should I do and if there's a phone number I should call to get more information.

Regardless of which state you live in, you'll receive a weekly unemployment benefit based on how long you were employed and your prior wages. The state will calculate your average weekly wage, and you will receive a percentage of that wage based on your state's formula. You can figure out your average weekly wage by adding up 12 months' worth of pay stubs and dividing that number by 52. If you were salaried, just divide your annual salary by 52.

Length will vary depends on your situation. Usually it last up to 26 weeks..

In order to receive UC benefit checks, you are required to file claims for benefits. In most cases you will be filing for two weeks at one time or biweekly. You will certify your eligibility for each week separately.
