Labor Department Suspends In-Person Unemployment Insurance Services

As a preventative health measure to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and as a way to speed service delivery, New Jersey Labor Commissioner Robert Asaro-Angelo announced that in-person Unemployment Insurance services are temporarily suspended at all New Jersey One-Stop Career Center offices effective immediately. Anticipated re-opening is in two weeks, on Monday, March 30.

Customers needing to file for unemployment insurance are urged to apply online at MyUnemployment.nj.gov. Due to high call volume, the department says that there could be longer than usual wait times. Filing online will ensure a claim is processed in the fastest way possible.

For those unable to access the internet, service numbers are:

North Jersey:  201-601-4100

Central Jersey:  732-761-2020

Southern Jersey:  856-507-2340
