Are you having trouble with your UC claim?
There are few ways that you can get help with your UC claim.
UC representatives are now available for in-person assistance at your local PA CareerLink®️ office. You must schedule an appointment ahead of time by calling your local PA CareerLink®️ office or visiting the office in-person. If you go to your local PA CareerLink®️ without scheduling an appointment, you will not be assisted. If you are unable to go to your PA CareerLink®️ office in-person, you may be able to schedule a virtual meeting with a UC representative.
You can use the search tool at the bottom of the PA CareerLink®️ webpage to find your local PA CareerLink®️ office.
Things to know before you make your appointment:
1. The UC representative is only available at PA CareerLink®️ offices on Mondays and Tuesdays. If there is a holiday on a Monday, then they will be at the PA CareerLink®️ offices on Wednesdays and Thursdays that week.
2. If needed, the UC representative has access to a language interpreter to help claimants who do not speak English.
3. Many claimants have already scheduled appointments at their local PA CareerLink®️ office. This means that the earliest appointment may not be until a few weeks in the future.
1. A valid ID
- If you do not have a valid ID, you will need to bring two secondary documents (birth certificate, voter ID card, W-2 or other tax record, financial institution documents (account statement, loan document, etc.). Vehicle registration/title). One of them needs to show your full social security number.
2. Your social security card
- If you do not have your social security card, you will need to bring one secondary document (birth certificate, voter ID card, W-2 or other tax record, financial institution documents (account statement, loan document, etc.). Vehicle registration/title). It must have your social security number on it.
If you made an appointment for help with a UC issue that is not ID.me, you will need to bring a valid ID.
If you changed your name or address but it has not been updated on your documents, you will need to bring proof of the change (like a marriage license or lease agreement).
