New Hampshire’s Workforce Connect is now here!

NH Job Seekers and Claimants will no longer need multiple User Ids and Passwords.

As of January 28, 2020, anyone who accesses the NH Job Match System or the Unemployment Insurance System will need to do a onetime Single Sign On (SSO) Registration and a onetime Integrated Registration.

The New Hampshire’s Workforce Connect is a three-module software suite:

  • Single Sign On (SSO) that eliminates the need for the user to have multiple user IDs and passwords, streamlining the login process.

  • Integrated Registration that means the job seeker does not need to enter their personal information multiple times for different services and eliminates redundant activity and means real time data transfers between systems.

  • Dashboard that will allow the users to see multiple widgets with Job Search and services related to their JMS registration, UI information specific to their claim, ELMI information relative to their location and much more.

***Attention Employers*** RESET YOUR OWN NHUIS PASSWORD

NH Employment Security is happy to announce that as of July 11, 2019, you will be able to reset your NHUIS password.

To reset your password you must complete one of the following 2 Options.

Option 1: Email address is on file; you can receive a temporary PIN Number via email.

Option 2: No email address is on file; follow the prompts to authenticate and reset your password.

In the event that you cannot reset your password, you may call the Employer Dedicated Line at 603-223-6100.


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
