Customer Service Email
Go to UI-Reports@uis.doleta.govin order to contact the customer service department at the United States Department of Labor relating to unemployment concerns or questions. We sent a question asking how unemployed appeal a denial letter. Typically responses from a customer service department are within 24 hours. We are still awaiting a response.

At first we attempted to contact our local Unemployment office, only to be placed on hold for more than 10 minutes. We then decided to contact the Department of Labor. Contacting the DOL proved to be the better option. Although the automated system featured a number of options, one of the options was the customer service department. We waited for less than 3 minutes and then speaking with a live agent. When the representative answered our call, we asked for information relating to contacting the customer service department. We wanted to know if individuals needed to contact the DOL for questions or the local Unemployment offices.
The agent explained that the offices are often busy, but the staff is qualified to answer questions and concerns. The experience was good, but we wish this was the case when we contacted the local Unemployment office. Did you have a better experience? Share them in the comment section.
