HARTFORD — Connecticut’s Unemployment Insurance centers will be open on Dec. 31 for jobless residents to file weekly unemployment claims.
Hours for call centers on New Year’s Eve will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. .
Gov. Jodi Rell in a press release said state officials have worked this year to improve online and telephone technology used by those who file for unemployment insurance.
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.
