Returning to Work

Everyone who is eligible to receive Unemployment Insurance Benefits receives two mailings after the initial application. The second mailing consists of a Return to Work Form.

The Return to Work Form is to be mailed to the Department when a claimant returns to work full time. This form notifies the department of the start date, employer name and address where the claimant began working. It also provides a written request for any outstanding benefits to which the claimant may be entitled. The form can be mailed to:

RI Dept. of Labor and Training

Unemployment Insurance Division

PO Box 20340

Cranston, RI 02920-0943

If you return to work part time and are earning less than your benefit rate, please continue to use UI Online weekly to claim partial benefits. If you become totally unemployed, you will need to file a new claim online or by calling (401) 415-6772.
