Unemployment Insurance

Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County does not handle Unemployment Insurance, that is the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).  We do not have any access to the system at all. We handle the employment side of things (we help people with jobs and training). However, we are committed to sharing the latest information about this subject straight from the agency that handles it.

If you are claiming unemployment benefits, TWC may ask you to verify your identity through TWC has partnered with, an identity verification service, to protect your personal information and prevent unemployment benefits ID theft. The process is fast, easy, and secure. The service is free and ensures you are the only one who can access your unemployment claim information. Below you will find a Step by Step Guide the Texas Workforce Commission shared to assist people with the process.
