Unemployment

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you believe you qualify for the recently passed Pandemic Unemployment Assistance or PUA, we ask for your patience. Please do not file an unemployment claim yet.

We are waiting on federal guidance before we can begin this program and need to get our systems updated. Claims filed now cannot be paid, and you will have to file again. We will update this site and notify news outlets when we are ready to accept claims. Please rest assured that we will backdate and back pay claims as appropriate based on the law and guidance.

To file a regular unemployment claim:

  • If your last name begins with a letter from A to M: Please file your unemployment claim on a Sunday, Tuesday, or Thursday, or after 12 noon on Saturday.

  • If your last name begins with a letter from N to Z: Please file your unemployment claim on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, or before 12 noon on Saturday.
