I received a letter in the mail today and was hoping someone can explain what this means:

"No Benefits are payable because the week ending 09-29-2012 was used as a waiting period week. Unemployment compensation is taxable. A question on the claim form allows you to request federal income tax withholding at 10% of your payable amount. you make a new withholding choice on each claim form you submit."

This is my first time filing unemployment, did I incorrectly filled out the claim form? I followed the instructions via handbook and thought I did everything correctly.

You did everything correctly. Once you begin an unemployment claim you do not receive benefits for the first week (therefore it is called a waiting week). Continue to certify and you will be paid for future weeks.
