Combined Wage Claims

Combined Wage Claims

The Combined Wage Claim (CWC) program allows an unemployed individual with employment and wages in more than one state to combine his/her wages to establish a CWC under the law of a single state to qualify for benefits. If you have earned wages in two or more states during the past 18 months, you may be eligible to combine those wages to establish a Combined Wage Claim. You may file a claim by calling 601-855-3133 or 1-888-844-3577. Your claim for benefits will be effective the Sunday of the week the claim is filed. 

You should be prepared to provide the following information:
Your Social Security number,
Your complete mailing address and phone number,
The names, addresses, and phone numbers for all your employers in the last eighteen (18) months,
The dates you worked and the reason you left each employer,
Alien Registration number or Visa number, if you are not a U.S. Citizen


You will need to register for employment services at the WIN Job Center if you have not done so already. Our staff can assist you with job search process, training and other career needs.
