IDES announces holiday hours
The Illinois Department of Employment Security will be closed Dec. 25 and Jan. 1, but services will remain available at ides.illinois.gov.
Regular office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. will resume the days after the holiday closures, according to a news release. Because Dec. 25 and Jan. 1 are federal banking holidays, some benefit payments may be delayed.
People can file for first-time unemployment benefits, certify for benefits and sign up for direct deposit online.
If you have any technical difficulties, either with your username and password or with the payment options, please contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
