With businesses closing down because of coronavirus, many New Yorkers will be filing for unemployment insurance.
Anticipating a huge influx, the State Department of Labor has a new filing system based on the first letter of your last name.
People with a last name that begins with A-F should file for benefits on Mondays. G-N will file on Tuesday. O-Z on Wednesday.
If you missed your day, you should file on Thursday or Friday.
