Missouri Unemployment Required Documents Information 

What Documents Do I Need to File an Unemployment Claim in Missouri?

You should be claiming your benefits as soon as you become unemployed. For both, telephone and Internet claiming systems you will need to have some important information handy.

You will need:

  • Your Social Security number.

  • Your complete mailing address, including the zip code.

  • Your telephone number with area code.

  • The complete name, mailing address, and zip code of your last employer.

  • The number of days and gross amount of any vacation or holiday pay you received from your last employer.

  • If you worked during the week that you are filing the claim, you will need to report your gross earnings for the week.

If you are currently living outside the U.S., you will be required to provide the name of the country you live in. When you request your benefits payments you will be asked for your preferred method of payment. If you choose to have your payments deposited directly in your account, you will be requested to provide the bank routing and account number in which you want the money deposited.

If you have already filed a claim for benefits in the past, using the Missouri Unemployment Insurance claim system, you will need to enter your Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you have not filed a claim in the past, you will receive a PIN at the moment you file it. Keep this number in a safe place and don’t share it with anyone. It will work as a key to access your information, and will be requested every time you file a weekly claim or a new claim in the future.

The information you provide will be compared with information available at the Social Security Administration. If any of the data provided is incomplete, false or inaccurate you could be accused of fraud. Try to double check all your information before filing to avoid inconveniences.
