Unemployment, other resources re: coronavirus pandemic listed by state

March 16, 2020

UPDATE 3/30/20:  Readers are reporting they are experiencing problems filing their u/c claims - this is due to the fact systems are overloaded by the unprecedented numbers of claims, some state systems have even crashed.

 

DO NOT GIVE UP.

 

Please keep trying. Consider filing your application during times when usage might be lower, such as in the middle of the night. The sooner your application is completed, the sooner you will receive your benefits. 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following is a list by state of information of unemployment and other resources and benefits for workers and businesses impacted by the unprecedented corona virus pandemic.

 

Information from the United States Dept. of Labor is published first followed by data from the individual states. (This list is being updated as more information becomes available - if you do not see info on your state check back later)
