How can a state the size of North Carolina be having problems like this for more then 24hrs. Get out of the stone age. Let a tax paying person be late or anything like this on anything the state will fine you or write you a ticket. But when its on there end they will give out unlimited hall passes.

Tried logging in just now. A “Covid” message popped up saying the system will be unavailable daily from 11 pm -3 am for the foreseeable future for maintenance. SMH

Received this email on 10/28/22. Clearly they are having serious issues. Wish there were more transparency, or phone numbers with recorded updates so we'd know progress is being made/estimated completion/alternate filing instructions, etc.

The N.C. Division of Employment Security’s online remote tax filing system is temporarily unavailable due to required system maintenance. Because employers cannot currently access their online accounts, the Oct. 31 deadline for making unemployment insurance tax payments and filing your Quarterly Tax and Wage Report has been extended to Nov. 15, 2022.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you,
The N.C. Division of Employment Security

Need to file payroll reports for several companies as an accountant, and every time I try to log in, I'm getting a message that it has timed out because it took too long to respond. Site cannot be reached. I know the deadline was extended, but it's November and the issue is still persisting, so what good does extending the deadline do if you're still not going to fix the website to be able to file reports? VERY FRUSTRATING! Do better NCDES.

Crystal Bennett      144 days ago  # + 0 -
Can’t ever EVER log in. So I haven’t yet in two weeks done a certification. This is Ridiculous. Unemployment benefits are already ridiculously low, so why is the website ridiculously hard to maneuver?

Guest      148 days ago  # + 0 -

Can't log-in. P.S. Your site admin should decide whether the term is log in, sign in, or log-in—and then everyone use that term.. Confusing to ppl who aren't very computer savvy.

You can’t get through, when applying weekly certification hard to reach them. Now case settled they send a notice says check on website well they have changed that and want to go through another identification process and it is now 1000 times worse. So I just quit trying. Can’t call must have three people on their payroll now. Our governor needs to look into it if he cares about people.

It is very suspicious that the online site and app is showing no 2021 information just 2020, all the correspondence for 2021 is gone, payments gone, eligibility gone, and it says now I am on PUA when I am actually and always been on UI.

North Carolina unemployment website says that we have to go on to NC Works (a job search website) and register and update your resume to get your unemployment check. Well, I have been on NC Works since I started getting unemployment and I updated my resume just a week and a half ago. I still can't file my weekly certification so that I can get my unemployment money! ????

You gave us 4 Ways to redirect to get to your site and they all don’t work!!
so this is your problem not ours!
We come on to do our weekly certification on Sunday and the website is down so we will have no money you’ll find a way to say it’s our fault.

I have been trying to deal with these people since the middle of yesterday afternoon. I waited in the chat queue for 3.5 hours and there was a 7 hour and 55-minute wait to call and speak to someone. Now today the page isn't working at all and I assume if I can get through with the questions I need to provide work search information, I won't be able to get that either and so will the hell begin in receiving payment. I've been tryng to get into the site since 6:00 am. They won't be open until noon and to call on the phone they are closed today.
