There is no fee for Unemployment Services through MDES. They do not solicit payments on social media and employees are prohibited from using social media to assist customers. If you are asked to pay a fee for these services, DO NOT PAY the fee and report this to MDES.
If someone filed an unemployment claim using your information report this immediately to MDES. Beware of scams aiming to steal your personal information. Claimants should only use the agency’s official website: mdes.ms.gov to give out personal information.
Some customers were issued additional benefit payments in excess of the amount to which they were entitled. Those affected have been issued a notice of overpayment. You are entitled only to benefits for which you are eligible. You must repay all benefits that are overpaid even if you were paid in error. Overpayments are legally enforceable debts.
