Unemployed can apply for benefits at SC libraries
South Carolina’s unemployed will be able to use their local libraries to file unemployment claims and conduct job searches online through a new partnership announced Wednesday. The S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce will collaborate with county libraries to offer the services through a new Connection Points program. Participating library systems in the Midlands include those in Richland and Aiken counties. The program also will offer printed resources and online tutorials to help participants with filing claims and searching for jobs. Those needing additional assistance can call the employment department at 1-866-831-1724 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. A full list of Connection Points sites is available at dew.sc.gov/directory.
