Department of Labor & Industry Urges Pennsylvanians to File, Manage Unemployment Compensation Claims Online

HARRISBURG – Filing and managingunemployment compensation claims online is the easiest, most convenient way for claimants to work with the Department of Labor & Industry, Secretary Julia K. Hearthway said.

“Many of Pennsylvania’s unemployment compensation services are available online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said Hearthway. “Providing services online gives claimants the opportunity to file for and manage their claims from the comfort and convenience of their home, local PA CareerLink® office, public library or any location where an Internet connection is available.”

Pennsylvania’s unemployment compensation web site offers claimants the following services around the clock:

  • File an initial claim, reopen a claim, file a biweekly claim;
  • Check claim status, view payments, manage account information;
  • Receive answers to frequently asked questions about unemployment compensation.

“Higher call volumes this time of year can, unfortunately, mean busy signals for some callers,” said Hearthway. “While services are available by telephone on weekdays and Sundays, Labor & Industry encourages claimants to use the website to file for unemployment compensation and to manage their claims.”
