Unemployment Claims Online

Librarians at the Reference Desk upstairs can help you set up on a computer to apply for benefits.  Some familiarity with computers is necessary.  If you’re an absolute novice we suggest bringing along a friend of family member who can help you navigate an online form.

First-time applicants will need an email address.  Among the  most used, free and (relatively) easy to set up are:

  • Gmail
  • MSN Hotmail
  • Yahoo! mail
  • To file a new unemployment claim or re-open an existing account click here.

    To file a weekly unemployment claim click here.
