Unemployment and COVID-19 – Resource for North Carolina Employees and Employers

While independent contractors and self-employed workers are not typically eligible for unemployment benefits, they may qualify for federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance as a result of COVID-19.



These are certainly unprecedented times.  With the COVID-19 pandemic, many North Carolina employers and families are grappling with unemployment issues.  If you are laid off temporarily, or your hours are reduced due to COVID-19, you may qualify for unemployment.   

You can apply online at https://des.nc.gov. or by phone at 888-737-0259.   Due to high call volume, it is recommended that you apply on-line.  You will need your social security number, information regarding your most recent employment and pay, your work history for the last two years and a bank account number and routing information for direct deposit.   

While independent contractors and self-employed workers are not typically eligible for unemployment benefits, they may qualify for federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance as a result of COVID-19.

Employers with questions regarding how to respond to requests for separation as well as qualifying and non-qualifying payments to employees should review the FAQs for Employers on the website below.  

For more information, the North Carolina Division of Employment Security website at https://des.nc.gov.  is a wonderful resource for businesses as well as families who need help.
