New York State is waiving the seven day waiting period for unemployment insurance benefits for people who are out of work due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) closures or quarantines. Applying for these benefits must be done online as all unemployment offices are closed.

Reach out to the County Employment & Training office for assistance with unemployment insurance.

Find more information at NYS Unemployment Assistance and NYS Department of Labor or call 1-888-209-8124.
