File a new Unemployment Insurance claim here. Our online filing system has been improved to better serve New Yorkers. You may file your claim any day of the week (Monday-Sunday) from 7:30 AM to 7:30 PM (Eastern Time).
New Yorkers who have already filed partial claims under the old UI system and were told to call the call center to finish their application should NOT - instead, the DOL call center will call these New Yorkers directly.

Governor Cuomo enacted a law that provides benefits - including sick leave, paid family leave, and disability benefits - to New York employees impacted by mandatory or precautionary orders of quarantine or isolation due to COVID-19. If your employer does not comply with this law, you have the right to file a complaint.
