Jackson -

The Mississippi Department of Employment Security has resolved technical difficulties that occurred over the weekend to some of its on-line service. 

People who experienced problems should try again.  We expect that call volume will be heavy but if they call in or go on-line by the end of the day they should get their weekly unemployment payment tomorrow. 

The numbers to call to recertify a weekly claim is (601) 321-1835 or toll free at (866)-946-6487.
New claims as well as weekly certifications can also be processed by calling (888) 844-3577 or going to the MDES web site at
