Unemployment Insurance (UI) Notes
You may not qualify for Unemployment Insurance (UI) the following reasons:
- You did not make $2,600.00 in one of the past five quarters
- You work four or more days a week and earn $504.00 or more a week.
- If this happens you may qualify for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA). More information at the following links or you can call 1-888-209-8124
Filing for UI has now changed to file on a day by your last name. It is as follows:
The CARES Act was enacted on Friday, March 27, 2020. Please see the CARES Act web page for information about how the Act may affect UI benefits.
Please do not call if you already have a UI claim; it will only make it difficult for others to reach an agent.
Information regarding the CARES Act and other COVID-19 updates will be posted in the Frequently Asked Questions about Unemployment Insurance During the Coronavirus Emergency.
If you are filing a new Unemployment Insurance claim, the day you should apply is based on the first letter of your last name.
A – F file on Monday | G – N file on Tuesday | O – Z file on Wednesday
Missed your day? File on Thurs-Fri-Sat
Any claim you file will be backdated to the date you became unemployed. If you are eligible, you will be paid for all benefits due.
