State of Connecticut Labor Market Information - Initial Claims Profile
  Statewide Claims Profile - State of Connecticut Last Updated: June 30, 2022  
This is the final update, June 27, 2022, prior to the launch of our Unemployment Insurance Modernization (UIM) project, ReEmployCT. ReEmployCT will bring about significant improvements for unemployment filers. We will not be updating these table for the next few weeks as we transition to the new system.

FAQ: Understanding these Initial Claim (IC) and Continued Claim (CC) tables

  • Initial Claims are applications for Unemployment Benefits
    • Initial Claims may not result in receiving UI benefits if the individual Doesn't qualify.

  • Continued Claims are total number of individuals being paid benefits in any particular week.
  • The initial claims reported in these tables are "processed" claims to the extent that duplicates and "reopened" claims have been eliminated.
  • The claim counts you see in the tables may not match claim counts from other sources.
    • Because of the pandemic related events claims are being filed at historically unprecedented levels creating processing backlogs of 3-5 weeks.
    • Claims filed for a particular week will change as time goes on and the backlog is addressed. It may be useful to revisit these tables over a period of weeks.
    • The counts from other reports are valid as of a particular date and may not reflect updates as the backlog is addressed.
    • Counts from our online application system will not match initial claim counts because of duplication, disqualifying factors, and backlog issues.

  • Unemployment claims tabulated below represent only one component of the unemployed. Claims do not account for those not covered under the Unemployment system (e.g. federal workers, railroad workers or religious workers) or the unemployed self-employed.
