Special Messages
Important Alert: The Division of Employment Security has begun mailing letters to claimants who received their FIRST unemployment benefit payment on or after March 1, 2014. These letters will inform claimants of a mandatory in-person interview, known as an Employability Assessment Interview (EAI). For more information on these interviews, click here.

Important Information Concerning 1099s
DES has completed the mailing of all 1099s. 1099s are also available online here. You need this 1099 because your unemployment benefits are taxable and you should include the unemployment insurance payments you received on your federal and state tax filing form.
