Employment Services Registration

Individuals who file for unemployment benefits must be actively registered for employment services to receive unemployment benefits, unless exempt by law. You will be advised if you meet the requirements to be exempt from this requirement. This allows you to be available for screening and referrals to employers who are currently offering employment.

Georgia claimants

Individuals who file for Georgia state unemployment benefits and reside in the state of Georgia must register for employment services through WorkSource Georgia, managed by our partners at the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG).

WorkSource Georgia is the official online tool and go-to destination for all your employment and job search needs. It is a secure, web-based system used to connect job seekers with job openings. Failure to register within 10 days of the first benefit payment could result in a denial of unemployment benefits.
