New Hampshire Unemployment Insurance Benefits

Continuing economic problems have made it difficult for Americans to find jobs that are commensurate with their education and experience. Many industries have lost thousands of positions in recent years, meaning that others have lost their jobs and are unable to find suitable new ones. Fortunately, New Hampshire unemployment compensation is designed to help citizens maintain their financial stability in these uncertain times.

Filing a New Hampshire unemployment claim is a relatively simple process. Anyone who claims unemployment in New Hampshire begins the procedure by visiting the New Hampshire Employment Security website where they must register to receive a user name and password. Each time the user needs to file a claim they must log on to the system using their unique name and password. First time users begin the process by selecting the “Create New Account” link from the menu.

New Hampshire compensation for unemployment applications require less than one half hour to complete. The application process is not considered complete until the applicant receives a confirmation number. Those who exit the process before receiving a confirmation number may return to their application to complete it within 24 hours. If they do not return within that time frame, then they will have to begin a new application claim for unemployment.

New users begin the process by completing the initial application for New Hampshire unemployment claims. Once the application is complete and has been approved by officials the claimant must begin to file weekly unemployment claims. In New Hampshire this is a process that must be completed online. Each week the claimant must provide details of their job search efforts. They log in to their account and designate a week for which they are making a claim. Then they must answer a series of questions about their ability and availability to work and whether or not they received any earnings during that week. After this information has been entered they will commence to detail any work search history for that week. A subsequent page will provide the claimant with a confirmation of their successful filing.

Users with problems or questions may contact unemployment customer service representatives during normal business hours at 1-800-266-2252. Customer service representatives are available Sunday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. However, most claimants find that the New Hampshire Employment Security website provides plenty of information and resources to deal with most inquiries and concerns.
