If you are facing unemployment or a lapse in employment due to the coronavirus, the following resources may be available to you:

You may qualify for Disaster Unemployment Assistance if you do not qualify for other types of unemployment benefits.
Browse the Unemployment Assistance category and filter by state for unemployment benefits near you.
Visit the Department of Labor’s Coronavirus Resources page for information to help employers and employees.
Visit Coronavirus.gov for more information on the coronavirus.
Benefits.gov does not administer benefits or accept applications for benefits. While we cannot answer questions about benefit applications, cases, or personal situations, we can help guide you on the next steps in the application process.
