Unemployment insurance claims and benefits data
The Unemployment Insurance (UI) program provides unemployment benefits to eligible workers who become unemployed through no fault of their own, and meet certain other eligibility requirements. The following resources provide information on individuals who have applied for and/or received unemployment benefits, and the COVID related claims still pending or on appeal.
After Oct. 7, 2021 ESD will no longer be sending a weekly press release of unemployment data. Information will be available on our website and shared in a release on a monthly basis. ESD will send out the first monthly release for the month of October on Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2021 at 10a.m. Pacific Time.
