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 or need assistance, please contact the NH Unemployment Assistance Hotline at 603-271-7700.
