Establishing a Password for Online UI Services
Individuals now need to create a password to file a claim and access online services related to their unemployment insurance (UI) claim. A Personal Identification Number (PIN) will still be used for requesting weekly payments by phone or accessing claim information through the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system or Virtual Agent. For other unemployment applications, individuals will require a password.
Steps to Establish a Password
Follow these steps to create your password:
