Even though I’m in a different state I had a similar problem. Do a search for an unemployment advocacy group. There are attorneys that will help you pro Bono (free).

Reach out to your state Representative they should be able to help get someone to contact you. I work for a state Rep. in Illinois.

I was terminated May 11 from company after 10 years because reorganization of job which didn't work in my favor. My employer agreed and they gave me a severance until September 26 2020 and I did set up unemployment account as advised in May so that I would have this income when severance ended. I Haven't received a paycheck in 8 weeks straight since September 28. The system doesn't work and I haven't has an income in 8 solid weeks. Please help. I have been escalated twice to date and no written or phone call how they will resolve. To my surprise they told me I have to collect via pandemic fund and not unemployment which I have done yet no success as well. They stated they knowingly approved me for pandemic on phone yet no pay out.

Yikes - have you tried contacting your state rep? If your claims are outstanding from July, your situation sounds pretty crazy. Elyssa wrote a great article with step by step instructions on how best to reach out to your state rep. Hope this helps - and keep us posted.

For the gentleman that was denied unemployment try and appeal I did and the meaditor was very fair she listened and asked my employer questions that they had no answers for I was eventually rewarded my unemployment. It helped alot because I now have some income while I job search so hang in there.

I received a letter and an email stating that I needed to attend a class on October 27, 2020. Someone from RESEA would call at 10:00 AM. No one called or contacted me on that day, I rescheduled a phone interview so I would not miss RESEA call. My very next check was short $300 for failure to attend the class. I called IDES to see why my check was short and was told I missed the class. I informed the agent no one contacted me, he checked and IDES had 3 phone numbers in the system for me and they called the incorrect one. I was told to upload a letter stating all this and I did and I am still without funds due me. Now I'm in a different state due to the current state of Chicago and COVID-19 with no means of taking care of myself. WHAT CAN I DO? feeling helpless #unemployment
