File a Claim


File a Claim

If you received $2,500 or more in wages on a W-2 from any employer where taxes were withheld during the last 18 months, you are likely eligible to file a claim for unemployment benefits.

Before you file a claim, gather your income-related information, such as pay stubs. Be prepared to provide information about work you have performed in the last 18 months, including the name and address of the business, dates you worked, and rate of pay. When you are ready to file a claim, go to MyUI+.

Unable to File a Claim?

If you attempt to file a new claim in the MyUI+ application but the system advises you that there is already an account on file using your information, and you haven’t filed a claim within the past five years, a fraudster may have used your information to create a fraudulent claim for unemployment benefits.

If you are unable to file a new claim in MyUI+, please contact our customer support center at 303-318-9000 or toll-free at 1-800-388-5515.
