Welcome to the State of New Hampshire's Department of Employment Security Unemployment Insurance program. The Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits provide temporary financial assistance to unemployed workers who have lost their job through no fault of their own, while they look for work or during a temporary company shut down.

To collect benefits, you must be ready, willing, and able to work. To qualify for UI benefits, you must have enough work and wages in covered employment. In New Hampshire, employers pay a tax that funds UI. It is not deducted from your paycheck. Additional eligibility requirements may need to be met and they can be found here on the web site or in the Rights and Obligations booklet.pdf file
