Unemployment Benefits for Furloughed Federal or Civilian Workers Living in Maryland MD

 Federal Civilian Employees Working in Maryland

If you are a civilian employee of the Federal government working in Maryland, filing for unemployment insurance benefits due to the Federal shutdown, you may file your claim on-line using the Federal Civilian Employee Application for Benefits. This application has been designed solely for those Federal employees unemployed due to the Federal shutdown and will only be available during the shutdown period.
To avoid long wait times due to anticipated high volume of claims being filed, you are encouraged to file your claim on-line. However, if you do not have internet access, claims may also be filed by telephone Monday-Friday 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
NOTE: If Federal employees are later paid for time not worked, the payment will be considered back pay and it will result in an overpayment of any unemployment insurance benefits paid.
