COLUMBIA, S.C. -

South Carolina's employment agency is teaming up with libraries across the state to help people sign up to receive unemployment insurance.

The SC Department of Employment and Workforce (DEW) announced the partnership and launch of Connection Points on Wednesday. The online service will allow customers to file unemployment claims, submit weekly claims and conduct job searches.

"The Connection Points offer South Carolinians the opportunity to take advantage of unemployment services in familiar, convenient locations within their own communities," said Erica Von Nessen, DEW assistant executive director for unemployment insurance.

The following library locations will offer the new Connection Points services:

  • Abbeville County Library System
  • Aiken/Barnwell/Bamberg/Edgefield Regional Library System
  • Anderson County Library
  • Beaufort County Library
  • Harvin Clarendon County Library
  • Colleton County Public Library
  • Darlington County Library System
  • Dorchester County Library
  • Greenville County Public Library
  • Laurens County Library
  • Marlboro County Public Library
  • McCormick County Library
  • Oconee County Public Library
  • Richland Library
  • York County Library

As more community-based organizations sign on as DEW Connection Points, the list will be updated. For more information on DEW Connection Points, click here.

Customers who need further assistance with unemployment insurance services may speak with a DEW claims representative by calling TelClaim. You can reach them at 1-866-831-1724 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays.
