Unemployment insurance filers will continue to get their unemployment benefits without beating the streets for jobs that aren’t there.
“Continuing to waive this requirement maintains Nevadans’ access to unemployment insurance benefits while Nevada gradually reopens with new safety precautions in place for workers and customers,” said Gov. Sisolak.
“As Nevada moves through the reopening phases and more businesses move to reopen, the Employment Security Division and Unemployment Insurance will link the restart of this program with the re-opening of JobConnect offices throughout the state,” said Kimberly Gaa, Administrator for Employer Security Division. “We continue to be focused on providing benefits and extend search waivers as permitted to protect the health and safety of job-seeking Nevadans.”
Nevadans seeking Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits are strongly encouraged to file online at http://ui.nv.gov/css.html. This is the fastest and most convenient way to file and it keeps open the phone lines for individuals who are not able, or do not have the necessary resources, to file online.
Independent workers, self-employed and gig workers are asked not to file on the UI website as the agency is well into the process of implementing the new module necessary to start taking claims by mid-month.
Claimants are encouraged to visit http://ui.nv.gov/css.html and at detr.nv.gov/coronavirus to view important announcements and learn more about essential resources. Online tutorial videos are also available in both English and Spanish and can be viewed on the Nevada Unemployment Insurance YouTube page here.
