Unemployment compensation filing system temporarily down

pennlive.com — Steve Marroni pennlive.com

Oct. 18--Those trying to file their biweekly unemployment claims Sunday may run into some technical difficulties, but the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry is working on the problem.

Labor & Industry officials say the website for filing biweekly unemployment compensation claims is temporarily experiencing technical issues.

“We ask claimants to be patient while we resolve the issue,” Labor & Industry press secretary Sarah DeSantis said Sunday. “Claimants will be able to file for their biweekly benefits when the system is available.”

Other programs are unaffected by the technical issues.

There is no word yet on how soon the system will be back online.
