Important Information for Unemployment Insurance Claimants:
The SUNY Erie Career Centers do not process Unemployment Insurance claims. If you have questions about applying for Unemployment Insurance Benefits or the status of your UI claim, please go online to www.labor.ny.gov or call 1-888-209-8124. If you are filing a new Unemployment Insurance claim, the day you should file is based on the first letter of your last name.
If your last name starts with A - F, file your claim on Monday.
For last names starting with G - N, file your claim on Tuesday.
For last names starting with O - Z, file your claim on Wednesday.
If you missed your filing day, file your claim on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Filing later in the week will not delay your payments or affect the date of your claim, since all claims are effective on the Monday of the week in which they are filed. Step by step instructions are available online at https://www.labor.ny.gov/ui/pdfs/Unemployment-Filing-Instructions.pdf.
We look forward to serving you again in person as soon as possible.
