Furloughed federal workers can get assistance

Federal workers furloughed due to the partial government shutdown may apply for unemployment benefits to help them meet their financial obligations while they wait to return to their jobs.

Federal employees may apply for benefits at ESD.wa.gov or by phone at 800-318-6022. The day they should call depends on the last digit of their social security number.

Because of the shutdown, furloughed workers should be prepared to provide verification of their wages when requested because ESD may be unable to reach their employers to verify their wages. Valid documents could include copies of pay stubs or W-2 forms.

More than 73,000 federal employees worked in Washington state as of the first quarter of 2018. ESD has received unemployment benefits applications from about 1,000 workers since the furlough started, including those furloughed and workers who were laid off for other reasons. As required by law, workers who receive back pay should plan to repay any benefits received.
