DLT utilizing grant to boost claims access

Posted:

PROVIDENCE – The R.I. Department of Labor and Training is using a $30,000 U.S. Department of Labor grant to install specifically formatted computers in local libraries for free and convenient access to that state’s online unemployment insurance-claims filing system.

The 30 specially formatted computers connect to the state’s virtual career center and are intended for use by job seekers who lack home computers.

Job seekers can use the computers to visit the DLT website at www.dlt.ri.gov to file unemployment claims or to certify for weekly benefit eligibility. Users can also visit www.employri.org, a virtual career center. •
