Alaska Unemployment Weekly Claims
Updated : June 18th, 2019
You can file your biweekly claims by using the Internet or phone (VICTOR). Once you’ve opened a claim, you must file every two weeks to keep your claim active and to receive benefits.
Filing on the Internet
To file your biweekly claims on the Internet, log in to my.alaska.gov and click on “Unemployment Insurance Benefits.” MyAlaska is operated by the State of Alaska, which provides single-sign-on for multiple state services available 24 hours per day.
