Social Security Unemployment Benefit


The Social Security Board is pleased to announced to the general public that the online platform for the submissions of the UAB applications is now live and available to receive applications. All persons who have met the qualifying conditions are encouraged to go to the website www.uassistance.ai, follow the instructions and submit their application. The UAB is available to both employees and self-employed persons whose employment have been affected as a result of COVID-19.

Applicants are asked to have the necessary personal identification and employment information readily available to complete their application. Information required include: name, date of birth, social security number, contact details, address, bank and account number, employer information, employment status, earnings and pay period.

All payments will be sent directly to the bank and account number provided on your application. The first payment for the month of April will be made on April 30th. For persons with multiple employers, you are required to submit the information for only one employer, either main or most recent employer.

If too many persons try to submit applications at the same time, you might experience some difficulty in accessing the website. Should this occur, please try again at another time. If you continue to experience any other difficulties, please contact the Social Security Office at telephone numbers 264-497-2201/2 or 3201/2 or email us at [email protected] for assistance.
