The Official Web Site of the State of South Carolina

To better respond, we are making changes to our claimant portal nightly from 11 pm – 3 am, and our system will not be available. 

Welcome to the new face of DEW

The S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce is excited to welcome you to the refreshed website.

All of the information that you have come to rely on from our agency is in this fresh, clean, efficient format which is also now fully compatible in mobile view. This updated look should make your experience with the agency more user friendly.

Some new features that we are excited to share with you include our most frequently visited links above in the How Can We Help section, buttons to our five partner websites on every page and simpler menu options so you can find what you need quickly and effectively.

We hope this new web experience will help you as you work with our agency as you work through unemployment to reemployment.
