DES does not have Unemployment Insurance offices. You must apply online. If you don't have a computer, you may visit a One-Stop Center or DES Employment Service office resource center (access to computers is available free of charge). Staff at the One-Stop Centers or DES Employment Service office can help with the online application. Staff at those offices can also provide information about the other services available to help you find employment.
To find a One-Stop Center or DES Employment Service Office, visit the [email protected].
Important note: each time you file your weekly UI claims using the Internet you will be required to enter the Personal Identification Number (PIN) that you created when you completed your initial application for UI Benefits (if you applied online). If you didn't apply for benefit online, you will need to create a PIN that will be used to file all future weekly claims and to view payment information. Your PIN can be any combination of numbers except all zeroes (0000), all nines (9999), or any symbols (#, *). Learn more about PINs and Passwords on our PIN or Password Reset page.
