IDES Closed in Honor
of Labor Day
August 28, 2014 - Offices of the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) will close on Monday, Sept. 1, in observance of Labor Day. All services will be available on the website. Claimants scheduled to certify for benefits should do so. Regular office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. will resume Tuesday, Sept 2.
Because Sept. 1 is a federal banking holiday, the availability of some benefit payments might be delayed. The IDES does not determine federal banking holidays.
IDES recommends Direct Deposit. It is Simple, Smart and Secure. You know you bank and you know your bank’s rules. Enroll in Direct Deposit here.
