DWD > Unemployment for Individuals > File for Unemployment File for Unemployment

Beginning Thursday, April 14, 2016, unemployment insurance claimants will be required to provide a working email address and information about their driver’s license or state identification card, if they have a license or card, when they log into their Uplink accounts.
DWD will use claimants’ email addresses to notify them electronically when correspondence related to their claims is available for viewing on their Uplink homepages. Decisions regarding benefit eligibility, as well as letters related to benefits claims and other written correspondence from DWD, will be sent to claimants only through email notification starting on April 14.
Information regarding claimants’ driver’s licenses or identification cards will be used to validate claimants’ identities and prevent fraud and identity theft.
You may reach a Customer Service Specialist at 1-800-891-6499 to answer questions about changes to Uplink.
