    Before you start your claim at the SC Unemployment Office online system,
    you will need to have the following information ready:

    Prepare prior to beginning your claim. Make sure
    you have all the needed information available.
    1. Your Social Security Number.
    2. Your work history for the past 18 months
    (including address, telephone number, rate of pay, and total earnings for each employer).
    also If you receive retirement pay, you must know the amounts.
    3. South Carolina driver’s license information. This information is not required but will be helpful.
    4. Alien number and expiration date (if non-citizen).
    5. SF-50 form or SF-8 form (if you were a federal employee within the past two years).
    6. Form DD214 member 4 copy (if you were in the military in the past two years). If you were in the military and do not live in South Carolina, contact your resident state unemployment insurance office before filing an unemployment compensation claim.

    Important things to know about filing a claim online

    * The information you have entered will be held for two business days. If you choose not to continue with the claim process after that time, your information will be deleted to preserve your privacy.
    * If you knowingly make false statements or withhold information to obtain or increase your unemployment benefits, you may be subject to penalties and criminal prosecution. Also, you may have to repay any benefits paid to you.
    * You must have earned sufficient wages during the claim base period to establish a monetary claim.
    * The approximate length of time you can expect to spend filling out the Internet claim is 20 minutes.
    * The date of your claim will be based on the date and time in South Carolina when the claim confirmation is issued. The final form will announce the completion of your claim filing and issue a confirmation number. Your claim will not be processed if you have not received a confirmation number.
    * You should normally receive a decision on whether you are eligible for benefits within two weeks of the date we process your claim.
    * To file your claim, you are required to establish a User Id and Password for use if you need to complete an unfinished application after using the ‘Save and Exit’ option explained above. You will need the same User ID and Password for any online claim or job registration activity from this point on, so choose ones you can remember, but that are not easy for anyone to guess. You will make up your own User ID and password to use.
    * User ID: 6 to 20 characters(letter, numbers, and/or characters).
    * Password: 8 to 20 characters. You must create a strong password by using a combination of letters, numbers, and the following special characters !@#$%^*()+={}:;?/.,\~-.
    * If you have an existing SC JobLink Registration, use the same userid, password, security question, and answer from SC JobLink.[ad#office]

    3. I am pursuing finding work, but am still unemployed. What requirements do I have left to fulfill in order continue receiving unemployment benefits? (Of course, I have not received a check to date, knowing that there is something like a two week waiting period for unemployment claims to be processed).

      Thank you,
