Filing a Claim for Unemployment Benefits in Delaware:

In order to apply for unemployment insurance you must first complete an initial claim by telephone or over the Internet.  A claim should always be filed as soon as possible after you are separated from employment since claims are not retroactive to your last day of employment but rather from the day you file the initial claim.

  • To file a claim online go to: State of Delaware
  • To file a claim via telephone call the unemployment hotline at 1.800.794.3032
  • To find information on both options go the following site: unemployment information

Appealing a Disqualified Claim:

After you file an initial claim you will receive information regarding your claim status.  If your claim has been disqualified you will receive the reason(s) why on your appointment notice.  If this happens, you can file an appeal.  Information on how to file an appeal in Delaware is located here: appeal your unemployment claim
