Unemployment Offices Closed Monday, Will Open Dec. 31

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s Unemployment Insurance claims centers will remain open Dec. 31 for jobless residents to file unemployment claims.

Gov. M. Jodi Rell said state officials have worked this year to improve online and telephone technology used by Connecticut residents who file for unemployment insurance.

Call centers will remain open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Dec. 31.

State offices, including the call centers, were closed Dec. 24 for the Christmas holiday and will again be closed Monday for a statewide unpaid furlough day intended to cut state spending.

Unemployment in Connecticut was 9 percent in November.
