CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Installation of a new computer system is causing delays in the ability of Nevadans to file weekly unemployment claims and receive benefits.

The Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation says call center staff began taking logging into the new system Wednesday morning and taking claims by telephone.

Director Frank Woodbeck says people receiving benefits may experience a one-day delay.

The new $35 million system funded by the federal government is being implemented in stages.

Officials say the ability to file claims online should be available within the next three days
