If your employment has been affected by COVID-19, you are not alone! COVID has impacted millions of people’s income at record levels. We created a series of videos and collection of documents to help you with applying to NJ Unemployment Benefits, which will hopefully help alleviate some of your financial struggles. Each video takes you step-by-step through the process of applying and certifying for your benefits. The documents linked below answer frequently asked questions, how to apply if you are self-employed, and provide more resources related to employment.
