Alaska Unemployment Application

You can file an initial claim for unemployment benefits two ways, online or calling a UI Claim Center.

To file online, login to and click on “Unemployment Insurance Benefits”. If you call, a UI claim center representative can take your information over the phone.

If you cannot call any of the numbers, without paying long distance fees call 1-888-252-2557 and you will be routed to the nearest claim center.

Note: After you have opened your UI claim, you can file for biweekly benefits online at the above website or over the phone by calling an automated telephone claim filing system known as VICTOR.
