Delaware Unemployment Insurance

Delaware unemployment Insurance (UI) provides benefits to eligible workers who live or work in the state and are unemployed or have had work hours reduced through no fault of their own. Delaware employers pay a tax to cover workers if they become unemployed. Most employers are required to pay unemployment insurance tax. Your unemployment insurance benefits are based upon the wages you previously earned through a covered employer.

You must meet certain eligibility requirements in order to receive unemployment benefits. Individual and monetary requirements are administered by the Delaware Division of Unemployment Insurance. The Division establishes the statutes and regulations that govern eligibility criteria and administers unemployment benefits to those who qualify of the current 4.3 percent unemployed Delaware workers. If you are out of work through no fault of your own, you should file for unemployment to find out if you qualify for unemployment insurance benefits.
