Larimer County Economic and Workforce Development has a variety of services and resources to help you connect to your next opportunity.  

The Unemployment Insurance (UI) system is administered by the State of Colorado not Larimer County Economic and Workforce Development and is primarily an online system. Claimants are encouraged to file online at MyUI+.

If you have lost your job or have reduced hours or wages you may be eligible for unemployment benefits.

  • If you file a claim with Unemployment Insurance you may be required to create/update an account with the state and county run job database, connectingcolorado.com.

    This database is updated daily (Monday – Friday) with job openings from community businesses. All job postings are verified prior to being added to the database. An active account gives you access to job search resources, including: a Resume Review tool, Pre-Employment Skill Assessment Tests, access to Virtual Job Shadow (a career exploration tool), and more.
  • The United Way of Larimer County has collected a multitude of resources to assist you and your family during this health crisis.
