The disaster unemployment assistance program is offered to people who otherwise may not be eligible for regular unemployment insurance.

Those who are unemployed because of the disaster should first file for unemployment insurance benefits through the Internet by going to www.njuifile.net.

In addition to Bergen and Somerset counties, the program also is available for residents of Atlantic, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Union counties.
