Unemployment News and Alerts

ALERT | 1.5.2021 | 4:30 p.m.
As we prepare to transition to our new MyUI+ benefits system, our existing systems will be unavailable starting today until Sunday, January 10. This includes MyUI Claimant, the PUA system, the phone line for requesting payment, and Virtual Assistant functions which require claim access. All services are expected to be restored by Sunday, January 10, at which time the new MyUI+ system will be available.

ALERT | 1.4.2021 | 9:00 a.m.
To help prepare for our new benefits system, all REGULAR UI claimants were directed to request payment early on January 3rd (regardless of your scheduled payment request date). If you attempted to request a payment on January 3rd and received a warning about early payment requests closing your claim please disregard and continue with your payment request. If you received our email about making a payment request but are NOT on regular UI (Pandemic Unemployment Assistance/Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation) you do not need to take any action. We are not paying PUA/PEUC and will notify you with next steps.

Please check the MyUI+ page for the latest information related to our upcoming launch.

ALERT | 12.28.2020 | 9:00 a.m.
On December 27, 2020, legislation extending and altering several pandemic-related benefit programs was signed into law. CDLE must receive guidance from the U.S. Department of Labor and reprogram our systems before we can fully implement the changes in the bill and begin issuing payments. We will update claimants directly with more information as it becomes available. Learn more >
