New Account Creation for Job Seeker

Enter your SSN to check if you have an existing account. If you have an existing account, do not create a new account. Using your existing account will help avoid potential issues that could result in denial or delay of receiving your unemployment benefits.

Legal Notice

The Department will not record or store your SSN if you enter it to search for an existing IJL account. If you provide your SSN when creating a registration, it will be maintained in a secure and confidential manner as prescribed by State and Federal law.

This notice is provided to you in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a, Historical and Statutory Notes). The request for your SSN is made under the Illinois Department of Employment Security’s authority to administer the State of Illinois’ unemployment insurance program, 820 ILCS 405.
