Frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 Coronavirus and Wisconsin Unemployment Benefits. https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/covid19/public/ui.htm

  • Apply online - The week you become unemployed, file your application online and do not wait to file. For more information, instructional videos, and to apply, please visit https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/uiben/apply/.
  • File your weekly claim - After you have applied online, you will need to file a claim certification each week. This will require you to answer a series of questions. You must continue to file a weekly claim certification for each week you would like to receive benefits. You can find more information at https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/uiben/handbook/english/contentspart3.htm.

DWD has a helpful claimant handbook that can be found at https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/uiben/handbook/. It contains important information and instructions about your eligibility for benefits and how to protect your rights to those benefits under the Wisconsin Unemployment Insurance law.
