WAIT TIMES

Please be aware that the Division of Unemployment Insurance’s website and call centers are currently experiencing an unprecedented volume of users due to COVID-19. This may result in long wait times. We understand claimants are experiencing trouble getting through. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank callers for their patience during these uncertain times.

Please be assured that Maryland does not have a waiting week like many other states do. No matter when or how a claimant files, he or she becomes eligible for benefits starting the day after they separated from employment. If a claimant is eligible, he or she will be paid for all benefits due.

If you are an employer seeking assistance, please e-mail dluiemployerassistance-labor@maryland.gov.

If you are an employer seeking Bulk Claim Services for all affected employees, please e-mail UI.BulkClaim@maryland.gov or call or call (410) 767-3252.
