Computer crash halts unemployment claims

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — If you tried to file an unemployment compensation claim electronically Sunday, you were out of luck.

According to the state Department of Workforce Development, its main computer crashed, keeping the claims system down all day until about 7:30 p.m.

Department spokesman John Dipko said the outage could mean a day’s delay in payments for those who tried to file Sunday.
