What Information do I need to have available when filing?

- Alien permit number (if not a citizen)
- Last employer’s name, address, dates employed, rate of pay, reason(s) you are no longer working, and last paystub or current W2 form

- If you were in the military or worked for the federal government, please have available such forms as DD214, SF 8, and SF 50
When Should I File a Claim?
On the first day that you are unemployed, or that your hours are reduced to less than full-time, you may file a claim for benefits. You cannot be paid unemployment insurance benefits for any time before the date you actually file a claim. We strongly recommend that you use the “estimate your potential benefits” tool on the www.colorado.gov/cdle website. This tool can help you determine the best time to file your claim. Sometimes waiting a week or two can actually increase your payments. Please be aware that the first week you are eligible for benefits is an unpaid waiting week.
What Should I Expect After Filing a Claim?
After your claim has been filed, you will receive various letters and forms in the mail, as well as an Unemployment Insurance handbook that explains your rights and responsibilities while receiving benefits. Please read the handbook carefully and follow the instructions in the letters and on the forms. Once your claim has been submitted to the Unemployment Insurance office, you will need to register with your local Workforce Center at www.connectingcolorado.com.
