Some seasonal employment will soon come to an end and the Nebraska Department of Labor is encouraging those needing to file for unemployment to do so online.
Acting Commissioner John Albin says, “While Nebraska’s unemployment rate remains one of the lowest in the country, we are one of many states that experiences seasonal fluctuations in claim activity. Whether it’s your first time filing or you have an existing claim, online is the quickest, most efficient method.”
Those currently receiving benefits can also make changes to an existing claim online as well as change payment method, change address or phone number, file an appeal, change federal withholding and re-open a claim for benefits.
Albin says applicants can also search over 30,000 Nebraska job openings on NEworks.nebraska.gov. There is also a mobile app that applicants can uto localize a job search, save favorite jobs and share them on social media.
