• Benefits certification number changing

    by  • May 14, 2013 • News

    The telephone number for unemployment benefits certification will change Thursday to 312-338-4337. The current number will be in use through the end of the day Wednesday, although internet certification remains the preferred method for certification.

    Workers eligible for unemployment insurance must contact the Illinois Department of Employment Security every two weeks to confirm they are actively pursuing work and meeting other eligibility requirements.
    According to the ides, the change is expected to save taxpayers $2 million each year.
