About Responding Online

The online system asks for the same information as the notice TWC mailed you.

When you submit the response, the system displays a confirmation. Print or save the confirmation page for your records, or record the confirmation number on your notice, so you will have it if needed in an appeal.

If your TWC Account Number is different than the number on the Notice of Application for Unemployment Benefits we mailed to you, enter the correct account number in the Comments, Additional Information or Explanation field. A TWC representative will update the information on your account.

If we need additional information about your response, a TWC representative will contact you.

You may not change your response online once you receive a confirmation number. If you need to speak to us about the response, call the phone number shown on the Notice of Application for Unemployment Benefits.

If you experience difficulties using the system, mail or fax your response using the information provided on the Notice of Application for Unemployment Benefits, or call the number provided on the response.
