First time applicant, I cannot get through to the unemployment Office

unemployed_personQ) I am a first time applicant. I finally received an email back from the local state office. A rep confirmed that I should qualify and told me to follow the links in their website. I cannot get anywhere with it. I cannot get through to any one through the automated system, nor will the site allow me to apply through it. I cannot find an actual State employment office to go to in person. I am wondering if the injury I experienced back in 2008, causing me to miss miss the 13 consecutive weeks as their site questioned in the application process;if I will also not be able to come apply to the state employment dept’s. local affiliate? I have all the information the states site needs regarding 2008. trying to avoid going to my local career center, wait a few hours and be told I cannot apply with the c. center; unless it is a necessary step. I just lost a job that I worked full time for over 2 years. Any guidance/ answers would be much appreciated. First timer!

A) I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble applying for unemployment benefits. It’s important to note that each state has its own process for applying for unemployment benefits, so I would recommend checking the website of your state’s unemployment office for specific information on how to apply.

If you are having trouble with the online application, you may want to try calling the unemployment office and speaking with a representative. It can be difficult to get through on the phone, but persistence can pay off. Additionally, some states may have in-person assistance available at local career centers or unemployment offices. You could also try reaching out to local community organizations or legal aid clinics for assistance with your application.

Regarding your past injury and missing consecutive weeks of work, this may affect your eligibility for unemployment benefits, but it ultimately depends on the laws and regulations in your state. It’s important to be honest and thorough when filling out your application and providing any necessary documentation. If you have questions about how your past injury may impact your eligibility, I would recommend speaking with a representative from the unemployment office.

You may need to visit your local unemployment office and get assistance in completing your application.
