    Unemployment Insurance

    To file an unemployment insurance claim, you can visit the Department of Labor website or call 1-888-209-8124.

    The day you should apply for unemployment insurance is based on the first letter of your last name.

    • A - F file on Monday
    • G - N file on Tuesday
    • O - Z file on Wednesday
    • Missed your day? File on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday

    Many folks are experiencing difficulties filing with the Department of Labor to complete unemployment insurance claims. Please keep in mind that your claim will be backdated to your last day of employment and that you will receive your full benefit amount. Call my office for additional assistance.

    The DOL has expanded its staff and streamlined the application process. They are now reaching out to applicants within 72 hours of filing instead of having applicants call to complete their claims.

    The New York Public Library is pleased to offer online tutoring to provide families with homework help, enrichment activities, and remote learning support through our partnership with Brainfuse. This partnership is just one of the many ways the Library is expanding its digital resources to New York City families during our temporary closure to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

    Through Brainfuse, kids and teens in grades K–12 can now access free, remote, one-on-one tutoring in a wide range of subjects and levels—from first-grade math to advanced algebra. Tutoring is offered seven days a week from 2 PM to 11 PM via chat. Services are available in both English and Spanish. Brainfuse also offers a bank of videos, activities, a writing lab, and other resources that are available to students 24/7.

    Families can access these tools with an NYPL library card. If you or a family member don’t have a library card, sign up for one using our SimplyE app.

    Download SimplyE for iPhone/iPad on App Store
    Download SimplyE for Android on Google Play

    As New York City schools increasingly turn to digital learning in response to the spread of COVID-19, we hope our expanding digital resources can help support teachers and families during this challenging moment. Our goal is to support a culture of learning, whether that’s in the classroom or in the living room.
