All New Hampshire Employment Security offices will be closed Monday, January 21, 2019 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr./Civil Rights Day.

***Attention Claimants*** 1099’s for 2018 unemployment benefits will be mailed no later than January 31, 2019. 1099’s are expected to be mailed between January 25, 2019, and January 29, 2019. When it is actually received is dependent upon the US Post Office and the accuracy of your address. If you have moved, please log-on to your account and update your address. 1099’s will also be available online after January 26, 2019 through the Correspondence Inbox in the benefit payment system.

Federal Government Shutdown

Individuals who have been furloughed or temporarily laid off due to the government shutdown may file for unemployment benefits. Federal wages are assigned to the State where your most recent official duty station is located. If your most recent official duty station was in a state other than New Hampshire, please contact that state for information on filing your claim. Federal employees with a most recent official duty station in New Hampshire may file online from home at www.nhes.nh.gov or at any NHWorks office (NH Employment Security). To assist this agency in processing the claim, you will likely be sent a Claimant Affidavit of Wages to complete if you were employed directly with a Federal agency. Please bring your 2017 W2, recent check stubs and any document(s) you were provided upon layoff to the nearest NHWorks office. You may be found overpaid if you later receive retroactive payment from your employer for weeks that you were paid unemployment benefits.

***Attention Claimants*** Starting Thursday June 28, 2018 any claimant who attended the Eligibility Rights Interview on Monday and was selected for the RESEA program will be required to self-schedule their mandatory RESEA 1 on 1 meetings. You can do this by logging into New Hampshire's Unemployment Insurance System (NHUIS) and review your upcoming mandatory appointment schedules to see if you are required to schedule a mandatory RESEA 1 on 1 Meeting.

**Attention Employers** EFFECTIVE March 30, 2017, all requests for wage information must be responded to on-line using the Employer Wage Intake website. A letter will be sent to notify when this information is needed. This letter will also include the website address and logon information.

Please refer to the Employer Wage Intake (EWI) Reference Document Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol for detailed information about the types of requests an employer may receive.

Responding promptly to any of these requests for information, from this agency protects the Trust Fund and employer tax rates. Thank you.

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
