Office Hours

Unemployment claim hours extended

Phone lines for those filing unemployment claims or seeking information will open one hour earlier starting Nov. 1, the Washington Employment Security Department announced today.

From Monday through Friday, call center agents will be available 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The number is 1-800-318-6022.

Applications for benefits and claim submissions can be made anytime on-line. The address is www.esd.wa.gov

The centers are busiest during the winter because of seasonal layoffs in construction and agriculture.

The extended hours will last through Jan. 31.
