Massachusetts Unemployment Office

Sometimes it is difficult to get through to the MA unemployment phone number, or you have questions that the website just can't answer, so you have to go to talk to someone face to face at the MA unemployment office.

There is probably a MA unemployment office in your town or county. Most states have one in every county. Be prepared though. Many people are applying for unemployment at the same time, and your local Massachusetts unemployment office could be very crowded, and you might have to wait in long lines in order to see someone.

Here are some tips when going to the MA unemployment office:

1. Go early. Be there at least 1 hour before the office opens.
2. Dress appropriately. It will be very hot in the summer, and very cold in the winter. Dress appropriately for the temperature and time of year.
3. Pack a lunch. You will probably have to wait a long time in line, and will probably get hungry. Pack a lunch and bring lots of water to drink to stay hydrated.
4. Bring your medicine. If you take medications that you can't miss - make sure you bring all of the medicine that you will have to take for that day, just in case you are there all day long.
5. Bring a pen or pencil. You will need one to fill out the application and to take notes.

Am I eligible for unemployment in Mass?I'm an active duty Soldier stationed in Maryland. My home of record is in Florida where I joined the Army. My military exit date is in August or September of this year and I want to move to Massachusetts to finish my Bachelor’s degree in Business. In addition to my job in the military I have a part time job in security which I will have to leave in order to pursue a move to Mass. I plan on staying in Mass permanently after school.

Hello, I have two questions, I have recently come back to work after an injury, all my fmla was used. I have a doctors note stating that I need to do 20 hours until I see my doctor again. Next week is my doctors appt. the company is telling me why am I back if I cant be back working to full capacity, their telling me that I may not be able to work if I still cant do 40 hours after my doctors appt. I have been working 20 for three weeks now. Can I collect if they let me go. And if I return to 40 and I cant do it and I quit do to medical reason can I collect. I have been working for this company ten years, it is not a workmen comp injury.
