Unemployment benefits provide short-term income to workers who lose their jobs through no fault of their own and who are actively seeking work.
To be eligible, individuals must be totally or partially unemployed, and they must have worked at least 20 weeks in covered employment and earned an average weekly wage of at least $247 during four of the last five completed calendar quarters.
Unemployment benefits are financed by taxes paid by employers to the federal and state governments. The federal taxes cover most of the program’s administrative costs. The state taxes fund the actual benefits.
If you chose to be paid unemployment benefits by debit card, you will receive a U.S. Bank ReliaCard Visa.
To report a card lost or stolen, or if you did not receive your card, call US Bank ReliaCard Customer Service at (855) 254-9198.
Be sure to check your spam/junk mail folders. If you still can't find the email, you may need to update your email address with the Office of Unemployment Insurance Operations. Please call (877) 644-6562 and follow the path to reset your PIN.
Unemployment claimants will receive an Internal Revenue Service 1099 form at the end of January for the previous year's benefits.
