Wyoming Unemployment Application Information
Unemployment Insurance (UI) program in Wyoming is managed by the Department of Workforce Services. The program offers financial assistance for workers who have lost their employment through no fault of their own. Such workers should have worked in the state of Wyoming during past 18 months and meet other eligibility requirements to receive financial benefits. These benefits are only offered for a period of unemployment.
If you are unemployed and you meet requirements for UI program, you should apply for benefits at the earliest. You can file your claim via the internet or telephone.
