Maryland's unemployment system is straining to meet an unprecedented level of demand. Many constituents have experienced considerable trouble accessing the unemployment system. The guidance provided from the state is to simply keep trying. 

Note: The Department of Labor states that in Maryland, unemployment benefits begin at the time that a qualified person is separated from employment, not the date of the application.

    • Last names starting A-F, file on a Monday​

    • Last names starting G-N, file on a Tuesday

    • Last names starting O-Z, file on a Wednesday

    • Anyone may file by phone on Thursdays and Fridays, or online Thursdays-Sundays
