We are aware that some eligible claimants have reported they have not received their payment for last week. Please know that depending on your payment method and your financial institution it may take 48-72 hours for your benefits to show up in your bank account or on a debit card.

We make nightly changes to the claimant system (MyBenefits Portal) from 11 pm – 3 am, and the system will be temporarily unavailable during this time.

Outreach Programs

The Labor Market Information (LMI) Division offers training sessions on workforce data produced by DEW and other federal and state agencies, as well as the tools and resources available to access them. Sessions are available to South Carolina’s workforce development partners, educational institutions, state agencies, local governments, media organizations, economic development groups, the business community, and other stakeholders. Presentations can be done virtually or in person.

LMI also offers data research services. If you have questions about our state's workforce, please reach out to us. We're happy to help you find the insights you need.

If you or your organization has an interest in accessing these opportunities, please email LMI at
