The Indiana Department of Workforce Development says the online system for managing unemployment claims will be down temporarily.

The agency took the Uplink system offline Tuesday night at around 10:30 p.m. and the system is projected to be back online around 3 p.m. Wednesday.

DWD said it’s a precautionary measure while it investigates suspicious activity on the site. Over the past week, the agency noticed occasional spikes in traffic that caused the server to reach its user capacity.
