Unemployment Struggles

People are struggling and frustrated... state unemployment sites and offices are having a hard time keeping up with all the unemployment requests. KEEP TRYING! These resources are your right. It is annoying waiting on hold for hours or having systems freeze, but DON'T GIVE UP. You will get through and get answers.

Thanks for the encouragement Mandy. I was able to get through and get my first check. Keep trying, and as painful as it may be, get up early and call 3-5 minutes before the office opens. We are truly in this together. Stay motivated, Stay Safe, Stay Healthy you can do this.

Denied in two states Not easy when you have worked a short time in three states although people in companies get transfered when you file it does not pick up the other 2 states and you cannot get through on the phone to appeal or explain because they are overwhelmed they make it sound easy but it's not I'm unemployed ...a taxpayer who pays for this in case I need it but can't get it. They tell me that I didn't make enough during the quarter to pay me well of course not I was in three states but with the same company for a brief period I had a job I was furloughed due to a mandatory shutdown of the mall by the governor...this is not my fault I did not ask for this why am I being denied for what the governor said especially since I had a job.... What are my rights?

Been trying since March NJ unemployment. Can't file online cause it has my old claim and won't let me refile my new claim. I called on the phone I filed a claim on April 1st but for my claim to be completed I have to speak to an agent which I can't get a hold of. It's no possible way to do it. Tried every different day and time.

I was laid off from the school district I was under contract to tutor for. I live in Texas and was approved for unemployment for 6 weeks. I have never had issues with the Texas Workforce Commision website because I get on very early in the morning when most people are sleeping so traffic on their site is lower. Don't give up and keep trying.
