Information for COVID-19 Employers, Jobseekers and Child Care
Having trouble filing an unemployment claim online? Our Unemployment Benefit System online portal is available 24 hours a day but is experiencing a high volume of visitors. We are seeing lower volume on the online portal between 10:00p.m. and 8 a.m. You may want to try back during those hours to file your claim or check the status of your claim.

Importance of Updating Your Address

TWC mails important, time-sensitive benefit and appeal documents, as well as Internal Revenue Service (IRS) forms, to the most current address you provide. Do not rely on the U.S. Postal Service to forward TWC documents. If you do not respond on time to TWC mailings, you might not receive benefits.

If you receive benefit payments by debit card, we will give your new address to TWC’s debit-card vendor, who sends you the TWC UI debit card and account information.
