Delaware Unemployment Weekly Claims
Updated : February 18th, 2021
The Delaware Unemployment Insurance Division gives a quick and easy way to claim your weekly unemployment insurance benefits check by telephone using a feature of the Information Hotline called “TeleBenefits.“
Note: This system cannot be used to file a new, additional or reopened claim, and is only to be used for claiming your weekly unemployment insurance benefit check.
The Information Hotline, at (800) 794-3032 (Toll Free outside New Castle County) or (302) 761-6576 (New Castle County) is available 7 days a week, 24 hours per day. Remember, your
“TeleBenefits” for any claim period cannot be filed until the week ending date for which you are filing has passed. “TeleBenefits” filed by 10:30 a.m. Monday through Friday will usually be processed the same day with a check mailed that same day. “TeleBenefits” filed after 10:30 a.m. Monday through Friday will usually be processed the next business day with a check mailed that next business day.
Be sure to have your current weekly claim information on hand as “TeleBenefits” will ask you questions about each individual claim week. In addition, you may be required to submit your work search log to the local office upon request. The system is designed to only permit you to claim for the current week’s benefits. If you need to file for a prior week, please report to your nearest local office. TeleBenefits will indicate which claim week you may file.
