Confused! Did not receive PUA benefit this week

I need some answers, I live in New York State and since I wasn't eligible for UI benefits I was directed to apply for PUA (Pandemic Unemployment Assistance) which will net me $600 USD per week for up to 39 weeks. Upon applying for this benefit and subsequently getting approved for it I received my first payment of $600 USD on Friday, April 24th, 2020. After following all necessary instructions to keep receiving PUA, eagerly awaited this much needed money the following Friday... to my surprise nothing was deposited into my account. I tried calling the Department of Labor to no avail... Will I keep receiving this benefit? Any other New Yorkers in the same situation as me? What's going on? I just need some answers as to why I didn't receive my PUA this week.. #coronavirus #pandemicunemploymentassistance #PUA #NewYorkCity #NYC #NewYork #UI

I started working for Gosch auto group in hemet ca last november and was furloughed march 20th of 2020. They just sent a letter to me stating that I will not be called back. I firmly believe that I should because I have alot of experience and I really enjoyed working there. If I have to take a pay cut just to come back then so be it.

I feel being laid off is unjustified.

Minus 4 years I've been in the auto industry since 1996. I've done deliveries, putting parts away, lot attending and taking people home as well as picking them up.

I’m sorry that has happened to you. I think you have to find a way to talk with a person who can fix the issue.

Nobody answers any of the phone numbers on the websites. They always say no agents available try back later.

MARYLAND unemployment doesn't even tell me anything!! They just stop putting money on my account so I dont ever know what I'm going to be able to pay! This is hurting my family I don't know if our electric will be shutoff or water or my car needs new tires I'm afraid my wife will have a blowout with my children in the car on the highway! I cant take care of my family this is no way to live!
