The Iowa Department of Workforce Development processes claims for unemployment.  You will first create a user name and password on the Unemployment Benefits Online Applications System and then complete the application.  It is recommended you complete the application on a computer rather than on your phone because of the amount of information required:

If you do not have access to a computer, you may use computers at any IowaWorks location or at your local library.  If you need assistance or you claim involves military, federal, or out-of-state wages, call UI Customer Service at 1-866-239-0843 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.  Monday through Friday.


We released all of the requested documents.
