Division of Unemployment Insurance


Welcome to the Maryland Division of Unemployment Insurance. Our offices will be closed on Monday, February 18, 2019 in observance of the holiday. All payments for weekly claim certifications filed Saturday, February 16 through Monday, February 18 WILL NOT be posted until Wednesday, February 20, 2019. Claimants can continue to file claims or weekly claim certifications online while state offices are closed by logging on to www.mdunemployment.com.

If you have questions, please contact Unemployment Insurance Claimant Information Services at 410-949-0022 or 1-800-827-4839 during normal business hours. Thank you.



The Division of Unemployment Insurance is currently experiencing unusually high call volume, resulting in longer than normal hold times. For faster service, you may file claims or weekly claim certifications online. If you are having difficulty placing a call through the system, please send inquiries to ui.inquiry@maryland.gov. We will respond within two business days. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.


Work Search Requirement

To be eligible for benefits, you must make a minimum of three (3) valid job contacts per week unless you are exempt from work search. You must enter your job contacts in the Reemployment Exchange (REX) Module.

The Reemployment Exchange (REX) Module is designed to allow you to enter your weekly job contacts into the system while eliminating the need for manual record keeping. REX will also provide you with a reemployment strategy to assist you in becoming quickly reemployed. The information submitted into REX will be retained as a permanent record of your job contacts and is subject to verification by the Division of Unemployment Insurance.

You may enter your job contacts once you are registered with the Maryland Workforce Exchange (MWE). For more information, please select registration.

You MUST continue to file your weekly claim certification (Webcert or Telecert) for benefits until you become reemployed. REX does NOT replace this unemployment insurance requirement.

You may enter your job contacts beginning the Tuesday after the week for which you are requesting payment.
