How To Reset Your MyUI Login Password
To reset your MyUI+ password, go to MyUI Login page and click on forgotten password, enter your email address and check your mails for the password rest link.
Note: Some email providers, including but not limited to Yahoo and AOL, are experiencing significant delays in delivering emails from the MyUI+ system for password resets. Unfortunately, this is an email provider issue. If you have not received an expected email message, please check your spam folder over the next few hours.
They ask that you not submit multiple requests to reset your password and wait for your email notification, unless the email was not delivered before the code expired. If you received the email after the code expired, please request a new code. Because of the delays, we increased the amount of time the code is valid.
Filling a Claim
If you received $2,500 or more in wages on a W-2 from any employer where taxes were withheld since January 2019, you are likely eligible to file a claim for unemployment benefits.
Before you file a claim, gather your income-related information, such as pay stubs. Be prepared to provide information about work you have performed since January 2019, including the name and address of the business, dates you worked, and rate of pay. When you are ready to file a claim, go to MyUI+.
However, If you have filed a claim in the state of Colorado since 2015, you’re still considered a returning claimant. You will need to complete your registration using the email address you provided to the department.
Unable to File a Claim?
If you attempt to file a new claim in the MyUI+ application but the system advises you that there is already an account on file using your information, and you haven’t filed a claim within the past five years, a fraudster may have used your information to create a fraudulent claim for unemployment benefits.
If you are unable to file a new claim in MyUI+, please contact their customer support center at 303-318-9000 or toll-free at 1-800-388-5515.
