Direct Link to Wisconsin Unemployment

From Wisconsin's Website:
See the flow chart: Which Unemployment Program is for You?
  • If you are unemployed and you've worked for a covered employer (an employer who pays UI tax) in the last 18 months - please apply for Regular Unemployment Insurance at https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/uiben/apply.
  • If you are filing because of the CARES Act (a.k.a. Federal Stimulus Bill), e.g. self-employed, independent contractors, workers with limited work history, you can apply for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) online at https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/uiben/pua.
Did You Know? All unemployment benefits are taxable. Withhold federal and state taxes from your weekly benefit NOW, so you don't have to pay them later. You can opt to have taxes withheld at https://my.unemployment.wisconsin.gov.
