The South Carolina unemployment login page at MyBenefits.DEW.SC.gov is used for applying online for SC insurance benefit payments due to local job loss.
DEW is known as the Department of Employment and Workforce development in the state and manages the MyBenefits service for access anytime over a computer.
Start out by visiting https://mybenefits.dew.sc.gov/_sso/MyDew/DEWLogon.aspx in your preferred web browser and enter the User ID credential from your South Carolina unemployment login.
If you run into problems accessing the system online or your login is not working, contact the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce agency at 1-803-737-2400 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday to Friday. Offices are closed are national holidays.
Account creation if not already setup will prompt you to enter a User ID, full name, email address, and a password. Passwords should be at minimum 8 characters in length and contains at least 1 number.
A security image is a unique feature for SC unemployment. The most popular images to select include a hard hat, sunflower, guitar, banana split, moped, statue, smiley face, toolbox, cat, car, mobile phone, and apple.
Security images help prevent fraud by confirming to the claimant that they are on the right site to submit a claim.
Individuals and businesses registered in the state can find assistance after logging in with paying UI benefits, tax collection, finding available jobs and qualified candidates (for business), and collecting employment statistics.
Submitting initial claims in order for DEW to determine eligibility requirements of the UI program is the first part of receiving approval of your sign in. Filing a claim is the only way for eligibility to be determined and be approved by email.
A email account will be required to register for a South Carolina unemployment login and to receive special alerts regarding your filing status.
