Full Answer

Through the Uplink System, Indiana residents have access to services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Those services include applying for benefits and filing for weekly benefits, reviewing a claim status and managing their profiles. The system helps to reduce the time needed for processing unemployment claims.

When an Indiana resident becomes unemployed, he can file his claim directly through Uplink or by visiting a nearby WorkOne Center. When the applicant is ready to file, he needs to provide his complete name and address, his Social Security number, his personal identification demographics, such as date of birth, his most recent employer's name and address, and the reason he became unemployed. From there, the Indiana Department of Workforce Development processes his claim.

Uplink also allows residents to create customized job matching profiles by identifying when and where a resident wants to work, how much he wants to earn, occupations he is interested in and the skills he possesses. He can also browse nationwide job listings that include State and Federal government jobs.
