Unemployment Office

A link to the Web site of the unemployment office in your work state is among those listed below for each U.S. state. U.S. possessions that have unemployment office Web sites are included.

About Your State Unemployment Office

The unemployment office in your work state is where you would file a claim for standard, extended or disaster unemployment benefits and pay, in person, by phone or online. Many have facilities at their Web sites to accommodate the online filing of unemployment claims.

Additionally, state unemployment office Web sites are good places for workers to research state-specific unemployment benefits, pay, eligibility requirements and the appeal process; or at least find contact information for same.

For employers, they are good places to research unemployment insurance laws and taxes or find related contact information.

Employers: See also unemployment insurance tax information provided by the U.S. Department of Labor and IRS.

Unemployment office Web sites also provide free, self-help resources for unemployed workers, such as tips for resume writing and interviewing, and facilities for job searching. (Employers often list their job openings with state unemployment offices.) You don't have to be unemployed to claim your fair share of the resources; many are for employed workers too, such as those seeking a better job or career advancement.

Unemployment office is the common term for the government agency in each state that administers unemployment insurance benefits and pay. However, each state has named its unemployment agency more officially than just the "unemployment office"; for example, the Employment Development Department (EDD) is the official name of the California unemployment office.

Tip: Some branch unemployment offices also go by the name One-Stop Career Center or a variation of same. On the Web, One-Stop Career Centers are often generally referred to as "state job banks"; subsequently, it's easy to confuse them with the personnel agencies that list state government jobs.

Regardless of what it's called, each unemployment office is typically a division of the state labor department.
