Contributions Contacts - Unemployment Insurance

The Contributions Division is dedicated to ensuring that eligible citizens of Maryland have access to unemployment insurance benefits when and if it is necessary. Our responsibilities include collecting quarterly unemployment insurance contributions from liable employers and paying unemployment benefits to entitled individuals.

Per Executive Order by the Governor, due to COVID-19, the State of Maryland government is now operating at Elevated Level II, which mandates a period of telework for non-essential employees across state agencies and the closure of state office buildings to the public. If possible, employers are urged to contact the Division by e-mail, rather than by phone, to ensure a timely response.

Contact information for the Contributions Division is listed below:
