Nevada Unemployment Insurance Benefits

It’s becoming very difficult during these tough financial times for people to keep their financial and emotional health intact. The state of Nevada has unemployment compensation to aid people when they are experiencing living through times such as these. Nevada has done what it can to make the entire process as painless and easy as possible with two different ways to conveniently file a claim for Nevada compensation for unemployment.

Filing by Telephone

In Northern Nevada, people can file a claim for unemployment just by calling (775) 684-0350. Residents of Southern Nevada will call (702) 486-0350 for filing their unemployment claims. They may also contact unemployment by calling the toll-free number, (888) 890-8211. People may call to file their Nevada claims for unemployment beginning at 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If it is a new claim, they must call by 4:00 in the afternoon.

Filing Online

If people would feel more comfortable filing a Nevada unemployment claim online, they may do so on the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation website. People can file new Nevada unemployment claims for the first time on this website as well as their continued unemployment benefits. They will just need to click on the link entitled, “Go to File My Claim,” and they will be taken to the page where they can begin their claims.

People may file a Nevada claim for unemployment at anytime of the day or night, seven days a week. One exception is the half hour between 10:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. every night. Be advised that Sunday is a day of high usage, especially between the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m.


In order to use the online system for filing a Nevada unemployment claim, they will need to be unemployed or be underemployed. They will also have to be able to provide:

  • The social security number,
  • Last two employers’ addresses and telephone numbers and
  • The dates employed by those last two employers.

Those who are legal residents will need to have their Alien Registration numbers. Those who are finishing an interrupted claim will need to have their personal identification numbers (PINs).
