File for Unemployment

Unemployment Insurance Update

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) is currently assessing the Presidential Memorandum issued on August 8 that allows claimants to receive up to an additional $400 per week in unemployment benefits.

DWD is waiting for guidance from the U.S. Department of Labor to interpret the implementation and funding options available for states.

We will update claimants on our website, social media platforms, and directly via claimant communications when additional information is available.

Individuals currently filing for unemployment benefits are NOT required to contact DWD to receive the additional payment.

Important Notice about Your Unemployment Insurance Claim and Increased Fraud

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) issued the below fraud alert on June 16, 2020. As a result of continued attempts by fraudsters, DWD is reminding you of this information. DWD is also asking that all claimants do these two things BEFORE filing your voucher for week beginning August 2, 2020:

  1. Change your password in Uplink to something no one else will know and something that you have not used in the past on other sites (use the password reset option on the Uplink homepage); AND
  2. Check your payment election status to ensure it is the payment election that you chose; if you chose direct deposit to your bank account, ensure that the correct bank account is listed. If it is not, immediately fix it. It is recommended that you check this each week prior to completing your weekly voucher.
