Pennsylvania Unemployment Contact Information

If you are unemployed, or have been given notice that you soon will be unemployed, you may be looking for the phone number for unemployment. Perhaps this is your first time being unemployed and you are not even sure what it means to get the phone number to unemployment.

When you work, money is set aside for you by the department of unemployment just in case you become unemployed. If you lose your job, you can use this money to help pay your bills until you find another job. When you lose your job, you will need to go to the local office of unemployment or office unemployment to fill out a claim. If you live in Pennsylvania, you can usually find information on the unemployment office or unemployment department in the blue pages at the front of your phone book. You can also do an online search or call information if you are looking for the unemployment number of your local office. Sometimes, there may be several unemployment numbers to call if you live in a large area. You may wish to call to get directions to the office or see if you can fill out a claim online. Depending upon where you live in Pennsylvania, this process may be different.

After you fill out an unemployment claim with the agency for unemployment, you will probably have to wait a little while before your benefits are processed. It usually takes the unemployment agency a week or so to process your paperwork and to determine if you are eligible.

When your claim has been approved, you will receive a packet of information in the mail. You may be asked to sign in weekly with the local unemployment office or you may have to check in with the office online. In order to continue to receive unemployment benefits, you will probably have to apply for jobs or at least be able to prove that you are making an effort to get a job. Sometimes, the unemployment agency will request that you apply for so many jobs per week.

There is a lot of information that you need to know to fill out an unemployment claim. Get the information by calling the phone number to unemployment.
