How do I file another application if I have filed one in the past?

Go to GetKansasBenefits.gov to file another online application for unemployment benefits or if you need to reopen an existing claim.

Follow the instructions found there carefully. Your application is Not Complete until you reach the “Claimant Determination” page.

During the process, you may be asked to print forms that must be filled out and returned to the Kansas Unemployment Contact Center. This is important information that will be used to determine if you are eligible for unemployment benefits. A delay in the return of those documents may cause your benefits to be denied.

If you have used the website to apply for unemployment benefits at another time, you must use the same user name and password created when you filed your first application.

If you cannot file online you can apply for unemployment benefits by calling the Unemployment Contact Center. However, please note that there will be another wait time.
