Tennessee’s unemployment rate is now 6.9% and Nationally the rate jumped to 9.5%.
Tennessee workers will have another means for filing initial claims for unemployment insurance. This new service is a temporary measure to help relieve the state’s overloaded telephone network for processing claims.
During the meetings claimants will complete their required forms. They will be prepared to certify their eligibility on a weekly basis, either online or by phone, which is required as long as they are receiving unemployment benefits. Staff will then approve and process the claims onsite.
