Beginning August 3, claimants will be directed to login to their ID.me account and complete the multi-factor authentication before making an initial payment election or updating an existing payment election. You should have already created an ID.me account and verified your identity when you filed your unemployment claim. If not, you will be prompted to do so when you click the “verify with ID.me” button.
If you need assistance, please visit DWD's ID.me page.
You have reached Indiana’s one stop shop for Unemployment Insurance needs - for Individuals who are Unemployed and for Employers.
Unemployment Insurance is a program funded by employer contributions that pays benefits to workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own.
When you file an Unemployment Insurance (UI) claim, an account is automatically created for you in Indiana Career Connect. The account is created using the information you provided when you filed your UI claim. You can use Indiana Career Connect to create an employer-searchable resume and search for work. To log into Indiana Career Connect, use the same username and password that you use for your UI claim.
