The Illinois Department of Employment Security announced a sweeping set of initiatives designed to accommodate the record-breaking number of unemployment claims filed during the coronavirus pandemic.

For Online Filing:

Those individuals seeking to file online can use the IDES website.

-Those Illinois residents whose last names begin with the letters A-M will be asked to file claims on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

-Those residents whose last names begin with the letters N-Z will be asked to file claims on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

-Saturdays will be available to anyone, according to the state.

For those using the call center:

Residents can access the call center at either 800-244-5631 or 866-488-4016 (TTY)

-Those residents with last names beginning with letters A-M will be asked to call Tuesdays and Thursdays between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.

-Those with last names beginning with letters N-Z will be asked to call Mondays and Wednesdays between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.

-Fridays between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. will be available to anyone to accommodate those unable to call earlier in the week.
