The Illinois Department of Employment Security service centers will be closed Thursday and Friday and some payments may be delayed because of Thanksgiving.
Regular office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays will start again Monday, according to a news release. When the offices are closed, clients can still use ides.illinois.gov to file for first-time unemployment benefits, certify for benefits and switch their payments to direct deposit.
Some benefit payments may be delayed because Thursday is a federal banking holiday.
There is an IDES office in DeKalb at 1701 E. Lincoln Highway.
