  • Does not charge any fees
  • Applicants will have 24 hours to complete an UI application once it has started
  • Those who start a UI application but do not log back on within 24 hours will have the application will deleted
  • While entering information and navigating through the application, do NOT use your web browser buttons, especially the BACK button as it will conflict with the NHUIS NH Claimant electronic application
  • Residents can be partially or totally unemployed to file for New Hampshire’s Unemployment Insurance benefits
  • New Hampshire’s Unemployment Insurance users who have received separation pay might want to wait before filing a UI claim
  • Once a claim has been made the applicant will be contacted by US mail, email, or by phone with the results (the most likely option is a letter via US Mail)
