Ways to File Your COVID-19 Unemployment Claims

Unemployment Insurance benefits claims can be filed online by clicking here, or by calling 662-256-2618, 601-446-3544 or 888-844-3577 from 7 a.m.-10 p.m. seven days a week.

If you are experiencing difficulty filing your Unemployment Insurance claim, you may contact your local WIN Job Center for assistance. WIN Job Center lobbies are currently closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Find your local WIN Job Center in the list below.

MDES NOW OFFERS A FILLABLE UNEMPLOYMENT APPLICATION FORM. DOWNLOAD THE FORM TO FILL IT OUT AND SAVE IT TO YOUR DEVICE.

Once you have completed the form, please email it to: UIClaims@mdes.ms.gov or to your local WIN Job Center, Amory Job Center: AmoryJobCenter@mdes.ms.gov.

  • Do NOT email the form to BOTH the UIClaims email AND your local WIN Job center. Pick one or the other. Emailing your claim form to both will only cause delays in processing your claim.
  • If you have questions about your claim, email those questions to CV19@mdes.ms.gov. That email address is only for questions. Do NOT send your claim form to that address.
  • After you have filed your claim or emailed with a question, please wait 3 to 5 business days before contacting MDES to follow up.
