Attention Unemployment Claimants: 1099G information

1099Gs have been sent to all claimants who collected benefits, or made repayments on overpayments, during 2018. Please note the following:

You can retrieve it by either selecting the "View &Print 1099" tab at the top of your screen, or by selecting Correspondences > Claimant Correspondences > Benefits.

  • If you opted to retrieve your 1099G by regular mail, and have not received it, you may find the document by logging into your ReEmployME account, and using the paths listed above.

  • If you do not have a ReEmployME account, you can create one by going to https://reemployme.maine.gov/accessme/faces/login/login.xhtml and selecting "Create ReEmployME Account". Once completed, you can log in and find your 1099G using the paths listed above.

Filing Options

To file your Weekly Certification on the automated phone filing system:

  • Call 1-800-593-7660
  • Input your information
  • Login in to ReEmployME to complete your work search record or transfer to customer representative to complete your work search

The automated phone filing system does NOT accept your work search record, therefore we recommend filing online. However, you are able to complete a weekly certification filed through the automated phone filing system by providing your work search efforts to a representative. Failure to provide a work search record may result in denial of benefits.

Claimants who need help creating a ReEmployME account, have issues with their account, or who need to provide work search efforts for a weekly certification filed via the automated phone filing system, can call a Work Search and Technical Service Representative between 8:00 a.m. and 4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday except state and federal holidays, at 207-623-6765. Work Search and Technical Service representatives can only take work search efforts to complete a claim previously filed on the automated phone filing system, or answer questions about creating a ReEmployME account.

Claimants who need help filing a claim or to get information about a current claim can call a Customer Service Representative at 1-800-593-7660 between 8:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday except state and federal holidays.
