Unemployment Resources for Utah

Direct Link to Utah Unemployment

From Utah's Website:
Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation - If your benefits have exhausted or your benefit year has expired, you will need to select “File New or Reopen Claim” to complete a claims application. The system will determine if you are eligible for an extension or a traditional Unemployment Insurance claim.

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance - This is a temporary federal program for individuals not eligible for traditional unemployment benefits. Some individuals who may be eligible include those who are self-employed or gig economy workers. See the CARES Act FAQ for other examples. If you have an employer and have been laid off or have had your hours reduced due to COVID-19, please apply for traditional unemployment benefits. Click here to apply for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance.
