Division of Unemployment Insurance

Welcome to the Maryland Division of Unemployment Insurance. Our offices will be closed on Monday February 19th, 2018 in observance of Presidents Day. As a result, all payments for weekly claim certifications filed Saturday February 17th – Monday February 19th WILL NOT be posted until Wednesday, February 21st.

​Claimants can continue to file claims or weekly claim certifications while state offices are closed.

Due to the holiday on Monday, February 19, 2018, the Work Search Verification Log in REX will NOT be available to enter job contacts for the week of Sunday, February 11, 2018 through Saturday, February 17, 2018 until Wednesday, February 21, 2018.

We are experiencing seasonally high call volume, resulting in longer than normal hold times. If you are having difficulty placing a call through the system, please send your inquiry to Thank you for your patience.

Attention all employers:

We are pleased about recent changes, resources, and services that will impact you, our valued customer, and greatly assist with your business operations.
