Unemployment Benefits

Unemployment Benefits

Lunenburg employees who are terminated may be eligible for unemployment insurance.  Terminated employees may visit one of the unemployment offices for help in determining eligibility or by calling the Massachusetts Division of Unemployment Assistance (1.800.439.2370) or visiting their website (www.detma.org). Unemployment insurance is a program “financed entirely by Massachusetts employers”—“no deductions are made from employees’ salaries to cover the cost of your unemployment insurance benefits.”  Upon termination, information will be provided that outlines unemployment benefits, office locations, and contact telephone numbers.  A Massachusetts Division of Unemployment Assistance office is located at 100 Erdman Way, Leominster, MA  01453. The Leominster office telephone number is 978-534-1481.
