MD Unemployment for Claimants is the official Unemployment Insurance Application for the Maryland Department of Labor (LABOR). Part of LABOR's efforts to implement the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), MD Unemployment for Claimants will allow registered claimants, including those lacking work due to COVID-19, to request benefit payment by filing weekly claim certifications. Registered users can also review their Unemployment Insurance claims information, receive important notifications, provide their tax withholding preferences, and update their address. All at your fingertips.

Only One Issue
The app is easy to use. The only problem with it, is that when you click finish after entering a weekly certification, you are not finished. You think you’re finished, but then the next week you see that it didn’t go through. The app takes you back to the prior week instead of the current week. Then you have to click finish again before it will bring up the current week.
Much improved claim process and app for smart phone is great addition
Overall a 200% improvement over old system. Now some fundamental changes are needed to general forms. ie. If reopening a case don’t treat like as if it is an all new claim. The state asks on the weekly certification whether you refused work. In my case, due to COVID reduction in hours I was receiving benefits. I was asked one week to pick up additional work. That bumped me off for only one week. When I reopened claim it was like starting over. Also I now must answer a questionnaire explaining why I did not look for work when I have worked all summer in a reduced capacity and was granted exemption from looking for work due to COVID-19.
Maryland Unemployment Benefits
This process through Maryland Unemployment has been the absolute worst by far. I have tried countless times to reach a representative at the unemployment office, only to receive voicemails and prerecorded messages. I have been on the other side of a call center and by no means would it be acceptable not to reach or contact a representative for assistance or some bit of information with regards to your case. I’ve been unemployed for over 6 months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Had it not been for my savings and the assistance of my family through the past few months ( who can no longer assist me due to their own problems/situation due to the pandemic as well), I would have lost everything I’ve worked tirelessly to accomplish. I have been applying for employment and hoping for the best.
