To apply for unemployment benefits, select the state where you worked below. You’ll find website links and/or phone numbers to file and learn more about eligibility, benefits, and other questions you might have.
Each state administers their own Unemployment Insurance program, so individual state websites are the best source for updated information. You can also find general updates in these FAQs about unemployment insurance.
Please note that states are in the process of updating their websites to reflect newly expanded benefits (read more about COVID-19 related unemployment changes). For now you should file for benefits as directed on your state's website and look for information about how to receive future updates. Most state websites have updated FAQs to describe their status and advise you on how to trouble-shoot your application. Also note that many states are experiencing high volumes of traffic and ask filers to be patient and persistent.
