Indiana Department of Workforce Development


Unemployment for Employers

DWD offers employers many online features to simplify the unemployment insurance system. Through Uplink, the online unemployment insurance system, you can file wage reports, make a payment and manage your account.

NOTICE: Merit Rate Notices – Deadline Extended

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) has received numerous reports regarding missing Merit Rate notices which DWD showed as printed and mailed in December 2016.  DWD reconciled the printing and mailing files from the vendor, and that investigation did find that a portion of the notices were not mailed timely, and in some instances, perhaps not at all.

DWD will be re-creating and re-mailing the replacement notices for any employer for which timely mailing was not confirmed. The replacement notices will contain a voluntary payment offer and a full 30 days to respond where the employer originally qualified for an offer. The mailing will occur on or before 03/06/2017, and the deadline for employers to return the Merit Rate notices is now 04/10/2017.

Please contact DWD Employer Assistance at 800-891-6499 for additional help and questions.  After dialing, select option 2, then option 3 for additional assistance.
