File a Claim
Users can now file new claims for regular state unemployment benefits in the MyUI+ application.
Before you file a claim, gather your income-related information, such as pay stubs. Be prepared to provide information about work you have performed since January 2019, 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+.
MyUI+ will determine the correct claim you need to file. You will need to register and then complete the claim filing.
Manage Your Claim
If you have filed a claim in the state of Colorado since 2015, you're still considered a returning claimant. You will need to complete your registration using the email address you provided to us.
Regular Unemployment Insurance
If you received $2,500 or more in wages on a W-2 from any employer where taxes were withheld since January 2019, you are likely eligible to file a regular state unemployment claim.
Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation
The federal Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) program was established by the CARES Act in 2020 to provide an extension of regular state unemployment benefits for those who exhaust the standard 26 weeks. For more information about PEUC benefits, please see our Extended Benefits page.
Pandemic Unemployment Assistance
If you were self-employed, a gig worker or an independent contractor or otherwise not eligible for regular unemployment (no W-2 wages), file a Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) claim. The federal PUA program was established by the CARES Act in 2020. For more information about PUA benefits, please see our Extended Benefits page.
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.
Please complete the form below so that we can investigate this issue, and if necessary, close the fraudulent claim so that your legitimate claim may be filed and processed. Please answer all questions so that we are able to locate the claim already on file using your information.
NOTE: Only complete this form if MyUI+ prevents you from filing a claim because there is already an account on file. If you are experiencing other issues with filing your claim, please call our support center at 303-536-5615, Monday–Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m
