Unemployment Insurance


NCWorks Career Centers are not actually “unemployment offices,” and we do not process Unemployment Insurance claims. We do help unemployed jobseekers to find new jobs. Currently, you do not need to visit a Career Center to file an unemployment insurance claim. To apply for unemployment benefits, visit or call: 888-737-0259.
