    McKinney has a workforce center in the city. Unfortunately, the office is closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. You can still contact unemployment specialists by phone or email. **Effective April 6, TWC asks that Texans use their area code to find their proposed call and access times listed below. See attached chart.
    Recommended Call and Access Times
    Area Code of Applicant                                  Suggested Call Time
    Area Codes Beginning with 9                       M-W-F 8 am to 12
    Area Codes beginning with 3,4,5, 6           M-W-F 1 to 5 pm
    Area Codes beginning with 7, 8                  T-T-Sat 8 am to 12
    Area Codes beginning with 2                       T-T-Sat 1 to 5 pm
    Texans will not be penalized for a delay due to call or user volume. Claims for individuals affected by COVID-19 are eligible to be backdated. Staggering claims will provide help to reduce frustrations for many Texans and provide better access to needed services.
