Colorado Unemployment Assistance

HCE Families,

Many of us have been impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see information about Colorado Unemployment Assistance below:

You can access the unemployment link at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdle/unemployment

  • If your last name begins with the letter A - M, file a claim on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, or after 12 noon on Saturday. 

  • If your last name begins with the letter N - Z, file a claim on Monday, Wednesday, Friday or before 12 noon on Saturday.

  • While filing the claim, click the Save & Finish Later button often, and click File a Claim to return to the last page you saved.

  • File during non-peak hours (evenings after 8 p.m., late nights, early mornings). It may improve your experience.

  • You must provide information about the reason you are no longer working for all employers from the last 18 months. If you have a lot of information to include, it is best if you type up this information before you start, then copy/paste at the appropriate time.

  • Once finished, click Submit one time. When the claim is successfully submitted, you will receive a confirmation page and number.

 The application to file a claim will be unavailable daily from 6 to 8 p.m. for maintenance.
