Alabama’s Unemployment Office

There are no physical unemployment office locations in Alabama.  Applicants are required to file for unemployment insurance and continued benefits either online or over the phone. Both methods afford claimants the ability to file and manage new and continued claims. Through the Alabama Department of Labor website, you have access to all employment and workforce services.
