Important Notice: The IowaWORKS.gov website is currently down due to an external outage with the website vendor. THIS OUTAGE DOES NOT IMPACT THE APPLICATION OR PAYMENT OF UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS. Please note the following:
Claimants willtemporarily not be required to enter their reemployment activities until IowaWORKS.gov is again operational, although they should continue to perform these activities and keep their own records as you may be asked to provide this information at a later date.
Claimants and job seekers are encouraged to utilize the National Labor Exchange, www.usnlx.com, to conduct job searches. This site is searchable by location and occupation and currently shows approximately 50,000 Iowa job postings.
Iowans can also call or visit their local IowaWORKS offices, where career planners can still provide one-on-one assistance such as help with employment applications, resumes, and mock interviews.
Use these resources when applying for a new unemployment claim.
