Division of Unemployment Insurance


The Division of Unemployment Insurance is currently experiencing unusually high call volume, resulting in longer than normal hold times. For faster service, you may file claims or weekly claim certifications online. If you are having difficulty placing a call through the system, please send inquiries to ui.inquiry@maryland.gov. We will respond within two business days. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.


Work Search Requirement

To be eligible for benefits, you must make a minimum of three (3) valid job contacts per week unless you are exempt from work search.

You MUST continue to file your weekly claim certification (Webcert or Telecert) for benefits until you become reemployed.

REX does NOT replace this unemployment insurance requirement. You may enter your job contacts beginning the Tuesday after the week for which you are requesting payment.
