Unemployment Insurance Resources
The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) handles all Unemployment Insurance (UI) matters. UI services are available online 24/7, and by telephone Monday-Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
*As a rule, you can get help via the internet faster than by telephone.*
All individuals who file an unemployment insurance claim must register for work at WorkInTexas.com.
