In order to file an initial application for unemployment benefits or to file a weekly claim for unemployment benefits on the GetKansasBenefits.gov website, you must first create and login with a unique user account that is associated to you, the claimant. Without an account, you will be unable to file for benefits online.
You will need to provide the following information and/or unique identifiers when creating your account: first name and last name; Social Security number; telephone number; email address; user name; password; and a PIN (personal identification number).
You must create a unique user name and password so the online system will be able to recognize you. Be sure to make note of your user name and password because you will need to use them to file your initial application for benefits as well as your weekly claim for benefits.
Your user name and password must be at least six characters long. You may use numbers, letters and symbols in your user name password. Your user name and password should be something you can remember and others cannot guess.
Your PIN must be four-digits long. Do not use repeated numbers like 1111 or numbers in a sequence like 1234. Your PIN identifies you to the system. Your PIN, along with your Social Security number, is your electronic signature. This helps prevent another person from obtaining information about your claim or claiming your unemployment benefits.
