(Las Vegas, NV) — People trying to file for unemployment benefits online are out of luck.

The Nevada Department of Employment’s website is not working, despite a new $40-million computer system.

More phone lines have been added for people to file their weekly claims, but some complain of long waits for a live employee.

Officials say the website should be back up within the next few days.
