FEMA has approved Nebraska’s application for the Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) Program. Eligible individuals who have not already certified that they are unemployed due to COVID- 19 have been provided with an LWA Self-Certification option in NEworks.nebraska.gov.
If you've been claiming Unemployment benefits and have accepted a new job, log into your NEworks account to provide your hire letter. Use the Provide Specific Documents link on the Unemployment Services page. Once we receive the letter, the work search requirement will be waived.
The Nebraska Department of Labor investigates all reports of suspected unemployment insurance fraud.
Job search requirements have returned for workers claiming Unemployment Insurance benefits beginning July 12. Individuals with an employer-confirmed recall date within 16 weeks of their layoff or furlough are exempt. Read the requirements below.
