How Can I Apply for Unemployment Benefits?

If you have lost your job because of the coronavirus, you can apply for benefits on the Maine Department of Labor website:

Bureau of Unemployment Compensation: Claims

It may take longer than usual to hear back about your claim, as the volume of claims has radically increased. 

If you are having trouble submitting an application or have been unable to contact the Department of Labor, our office may be able to help. Find contact information for Congressman Golden’s nearest office here.
