“NH Employment Security’s Unemployment Benefit System (claim filing application – “NHUIS”) and WebTax System (employer taxes and new hire reporting) will be unavailable on Wednesday, February 10th, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., due to system maintenance. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.”


1099s for unemployment benefits to be mailed by January 29, 2016
1099s for unemployment benefits paid during calendar year 2015 are expected to be mailed between January 25 and 29, 2016. When the 1099 is actually received is dependent upon the U.S. Post Office. 1099s will also be available after January 25, 2016 through the Correspondence Inbox in the benefit payment system (NHUIS).

“I paid the money back, why am I getting a 1099?”
Even though an individual has been found overpaid unemployment benefits, and has paid the money back, the benefits as originally paid are considered income by the IRS and a 1099 must be issued for them. Reference IRS Publication 525.

Security Alert
NHES continues to receive information regarding a number of nationwide online scams targeting individuals seeking to file unemployment insurance claims. These sites request personal information and charge a fee to help customers complete their Unemployment Insurance claims, typically implying that they are directly connected with a state’s official website.

The State of New Hampshire processes unemployment claims for free, so customers should be extremely wary of any site that charges a fee for this service.

New Hampshire Employment Security will also never ask for your credit card information. If asked to supply your credit card information or if you should receive a pop-up message seeking your credit card information while on the agency’s website you should not provide any information and immediately close down the application you are using. You should then contact an appropriate IT professional to review the security of the computer system you are using and seek help specifically dealing with malware/virus repair.

If you are unable to file your claim for benefits because of this or a similar problem, please remember each NHES local office maintains a resource center equipped with computers for filing your claim. Local Office Locations
