Filing unemployment claims for the past 9 weeks, but each week declined.

unemployed_personQ) I have received a letter confirming my eligibility for Unemployment Insurance, and have been filing weekly claims for the past 9 Wednesdays, but each week has been declined. I am not sure why. I filled out the direct deposit information, and I have been actively seeking work each week.

A) I would suggest that you call or preferably visit your local unemployment office and speak with a counselor regarding why you are not receiving your eligible unemployment benefits. It may be that you are not fully following their guidelines regarding how to certify each week. For some unemployment offices you have to fill out a report on companies for which you have applied for a job each week.

  1. I have not worked in nine years. I keep getting letters from Michigan Dept of Labor saying they are offering me more unemployment money, You can’t go to their office, it seems to be closed, you can’t talk to anyone on the phone, you just get a recording telling you to go online and appeal to get more benefits.
    I mailed in and emailed in and faxed in fraud reports, I get back a nice letter telling me how to file to get more benefits.
    Now I get a 1099 for $5,500.00 that I am supposed to pay tax on.
    So I sent another fraud report and today I get a letter from them saying I am approved for more benefits and how to appeal their decision and try to get een more benefits.
    I have received no money from them, I asked where they were sending the money, no reply. They have my address to send me info on getting more benefits, so where are they sending the money?
    China? Russia? This is pure insanity.
