How to File a Biweekly Claim by Telephone

PA Teleclaims (PAT) is the department's telephone claim filing system. You must have a push-button telephone to use PAT, but you do not need touch-tone service. If you do not have touch-tone service, but have a telephone with a PULSE/TONE switch, call PAT with the switch in the PULSE position. When PAT answers your call, place the switch to the TONE position.
 
You may file your biweekly claims by PAT Sunday 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. If you get a busy signal, please try again.
