Nevada Unemployment Phone Number

Sometimes you just have to speak to a live person to get answers to your queries. In that case, you can call the NV Unemployment Phone Number: Toll Free: (888) 890-8211.

Be all set for long wait times as lots of people try to do the same thing that you are. Be unduring and you will get through to someone who can help you. Though it is frustrating to wait so long, be polite to the person you get connected to and you will get a lot more assistance than if you are rude. The staffers on the other line are doing everything they can to help the persons who are contacting them.

It is advised to call from 8:00 a.m to 5.00 p.m (Monday – Friday). New calls are not accepted after 4.00 pm.

  1. That 888 number is disconnected. I received unemployment but never a debt card. The debt card costumer service center tells me my address is incomplete but it is complete on the UI website. What now?

  2. I received an unemployment debit card although I never filed for unemployment. I’m nervous someone stole my identify and don’t know what to do. Have tried calling so many times. Voice recordings keep guiding me toward the website, but there is no information about what to do in the situation I am in. Suggestions?

  3. I’ve filed a claim yesterday, 12/15/20. At the end of the claim, I’m told to call a claim center “Your claim must be reviewed by DETR, please contact the Telephone Claims Center to submit your claim.” I’ve been calling for hours now, but can’t get through. The system says there is a callback feature to hold my place in line, but there’s no information on how to get on this callback feature.

    Also, the resource hyperlinks do not work and are invalid.

  4. I am trying to call, cant get through. wasting full days on phone when I could be looking for work. no option for call back as stated on phone recording. I need to speak to someone about a Alternate Base Claim due to ineligible for standard base claim. I am running out of savings and need help now!

    1. Peyton,

      There might be no response due to shortage of staff. Please try to work it out online, on the department’s official website.

      1. I originally filed my claim back in September it’s now December 18th and I still don’t know anything I’ve been evicted and I’m now homeless I was working up until my doctor told me to stop and self quarantine I have congestive heart failure as well as COPD I’m as high-risk as you can get if I get covid-19 I will die. Im 44 years old this is
        not a joke to add to that stress I’m now homeless because I’ve been evicted because I can’t pay my rent every time I try to call to find something out same automated bulshit so basically when statistics say that Homeless are the highest at risk and I’m even double High because of my health there’s still no help there’s no concern this is a joke this whole system is a joke I will say it one time if I die of covid-19 my family is going to sue the hell out of Nevada and I hope they do because they have it coming. The government or me hierarchy of our society their number one job is to protect us exactly what would you call this?

  5. No callback feature, calls ending due to all staff unavailable, or the queue has reached the number of callers for the day. When is this asinine, incapable, non-responsive system going to be fixed? This is an absolute embarrassment and completely uncalled for. People are doing unspeakable or immoral things just to survive. I truly believe that all of us are unemployed waiting for some sort of news should have blocked all of the voting entrances and demanded change before a vote. What a disgrace!!!

    1. I agree!!!!!!!!!! In order for me to get any payment I must talk to some one first. And The corp. that I do not want to say who they are at this time pulled some of the lowest level above the law B.S. on me that if I do not get to talk to some one at unemployment for the state of Nv., I will never get my money that I have coming to me. I have been waiting for 7-8 weeks. Henry c.

    2. Hello there, I feel your concern. I filed my original claim April 9th, 2020. System kept deactivating my claim, I had to reactivate my claim five times and I am still waiting on the unemployment from the beginning of the shutdown. Then my employer decided to dissolve my position at the end of October because it was best for them! Way to go CVC! So I continue to wait for something to happen. And I have lost track on the number of times I have called the unemployment number and nothing. After several months of waiting!!!! I have a family to provide for and I was the only one working! So disgusted beyond belief….-

  6. Hi there I had the same problem and I just got through to unemployment and the lady said that when you open the EUC claim and then you file it tends to take a little bit longer for you to get that first deposit so I should have been paid like that Tuesday but I won’t get it till Saturday of the end of the week so basically it’s about a week behind it but it’ll catch up hope this helps you

  7. So all of my UI benefits have been exhausted and I received a letter in the mail saying that I qualified for the PEUC program for 13 weeks I want onto the website I signed up for and I received a letter in the mail With no information on there just the notice of monetary determination that’s it there’s really no information on there so when I went back onto the website to see if my claim is pending it shows that it’s open it shows a remaining balance but there’s no other information I’ve been calling the unemployment department for four days starting at 7:50 in the morning until the evening time no one picks up When you call the unemployment department they say that there is a option for a call back but there’s no option At all and what makes this really bad is the fact that they were telling people if you sign up for the PEUC there’s no waiting period so I’m thinking that I’m gonna be getting my weekly benefits like I was before because I signed up for it and I know that I’m eligible for it I didn’t receive a dime there’s no information that tells you how this program really works there’s no one to explain to you how that program works I’m fed up to the point where I don’t even know what else to do because bills are piling up rain is almost you and I don’t know if I was approved I denied it just shows me that That my claim is open but it doesn’t show if there’s gonna be any payments I’m gonna be receiving soon there’s no information every two minutes I’m calling the unemployment department and nobody’s picking up so it seems that I understand they’re short staffed but I feel like people who are in dire need should not have to pay the price of the fact that the unemployment department is shortstaffed that’s not fair I don’t know what else to do I’m almost on the verge of just giving up and just saying who cares I’m afraid that I might end up losing my apartment because of this crap

  8. Trying to get thru to find out how to do an in person I’d check from out of state. My debit card number was compromised but was luckily stopped by BOA before any money was lost and have a replacement card and the account opened up again with BOA but now says online that status pending an in person id check from bpc and I have called and even emailed staying my issue was resolved but can’t get an answer.

    1. Andy,

      Please block your card immediately and wait for help. The Unemployment Office might be inundated with pending requests.

  9. The NV unemployment number says it has a callback option to hold your place in queue, but then provides no number to press for a callback. Filing online results in a message saying I have to file over the phone. I tried contacting the email as well. What should I do?

      1. Sam,

        The call back system isn’t working. My UI claim has sent back in March. How can I get some help with my claim.

        Please help! I’m really hurting! Please Please someone help!

        1. Jed,

          I can understand your situation. There will be a delay considering the number of applications that are being processed. Please continue chasing the office/check your status online at regular intervals.

    1. I need help.!!!
      Apparently my claim has gone dormant. I need to reactivate my claim.
      However….. I can not.. get thru to speak to someone. Can you please direct me to the correct phone number.

  10. How do you get the call back feature option? Was unable to get through for over several months, in a desperate attempt for any answer as to why claim hasn’t paid, spoke to the help desk. They informed there was a spelling error on my name at some point but they could do nothing about it. Still trying to get through to someone who can, being able to get the call back feature as an option would help.

    1. James,

      They might not be able to call you back due to shortage of staff. Please try reaching out during non-peak hours.

    2. James,

      They might not be able to call you back due to a shortage of staff. Please try reaching out during non-peak hours.

    1. Dennis,

      Please try finding answers online since there might be limited phone support due to the shortage of staffing.
