We are currently experiencing unprecedented call volumes, resulting in longer than normal wait times. Claimants should apply for Unemployment Compensation online by clicking "File for Benefits" below. The UI system is being updated to reflect the recently passed DC legislation that waives the UI work search requirement due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Claimants should disregard any messages received that claim benefits will be delayed or denied for this reason.
