Unemployment Insurance Benefits

1099 Tax information will be available online by January 30, 2015. A message will be placed on our website when 1099 information is available. If you have an email on file with us, a notification will be sent to you when 1099 information is available.

Under an Executive Order issued by Governor Chris Christie, state offices will be closed from 1 p.m., Monday, Jan. 26, 2015, through Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015 due to snow accumulations anticipated with Winter Storm Juno. On-line filing and certification for unemployment benefits will continue to be available at njuifile.net. Anyone who had a scheduled appointment for a hearing or fact-finding session will be contacted for a rescheduling.
