Covid-19: Unemployment Compensation

March 18, 2020

If your hours have been reduced or eliminated at work due to this health emergency, file immediately for unemployment compensation. Apply even if you're told you're not eligible, as the rules and requirements may be changed under these extreme circumstances. One thing that won't change is the day you applied, and benefits aren't backdated to your last day of work, "your claim is always on the Sunday of the week when you submit the application for benefits". So apply now. 

Please note, when you file online using the link below you will not be on the Department of Labor's website because the application website has been contracted out to the private sector.
