Our phone system for filing weekly
unemployment claims and performing an
account status inquiry will soon be phased
out to allow for enhanced electronic
processing. During this transition,
you’ll still be able to use the phone system
three days a week, and we’re adding a new
feature to our web service to make it easier
than ever to file a claim or check your
account status online! Click
