God is Awesome! I have been waiting on my UI/Pandemic benefits since January 2021. I submitted every piece of paperwork they asked me for. At the end of February I received a letter saying I was approved. So I waited on a check.....nothing! I called almost every day and got the same answer yes we have all your information yes you are approved ....but a supervisor is looking over your case. I waited two weeks called again same thing a supervisor will contact me after I requested for them to call. Days passed no call. I saw a post here on Jobcase a woman expressed that we should contact our State representative/legislators concerning unanswered unemployment. I DID JUST THAT! I emailed my state representative March 31. A secretary from their office emailed me back the same day saying they received my email and asked me for my case #. I emailed them back immediately! The next day April 1, I received another email saying they have reached out to SCDEW on my behalf and I should hear from them and to continue to check my portal. I didn’t get a call so yesterday I called and got answers to every question I have been asking for month. A supervisor stepped in on the call and I can say Today is April 6 and I woke up a healthy bank account! I received my back pay from SCDEW!!
