Reemployment Activities are a key part of the steps necessary to maintain your eligibility for unemployment insurance (UI) benefits.

Effective January 16, 2022, maintaining eligibility requires that you:  

  1. Register and create a résumé in IowaWORKS;
  2. Complete at least four valid reemployment activities per week (three of which must be job applications); 
  3. Record and certify reemployment activities in the Job Contact and Reemployment Activity Log (see detailed instructions below); and,
  4. File your weekly application for unemployment benefits. 

Important: You must continue to file a UI claim certification each week to request benefit payments. 

Submitting and certifying four valid reemployment activities each week in the Job Contact and Reemployment Activity Log does not replace the requirement to file your weekly claim certification.
