I had a job for 2 days, I don't qualify for unemployment. But I was not allowed to file for the pandemic money. I tried to call unemployment, even sent an email to them. Got no response. I need money to buy food, and pay my rent, and my phone. Now my A.c. quit working and its 106° today in Las Vegas NV. Why am I being denied the money?

Too bad you can't get anyone on the phone to find out the actual payment status and confirmation all is on order to start receiving the benefits. Frustrating doesnt really do it justice@
