I applied for unemployment in April and was denied.

I applied for unemployment in April and was denied. I left my job due to covid 19..My kids school shut down and i had to stay home with them…I am their sole provider. But because in the chaos and uncertainty of covid ( it was just making it’s way to my area) I failed to leave my job correctly. I did not separate with just cause. I thought Covid was reason enough and schools shutting down.. But I guess i didn’t follow policy and procedure. I have not worked since march 17. I did not appeal my denial because i figured it was a moot point. However, i am still without a job, and my kids are doing online virtual school and i am having to stay home with them still. I have no one to keep them during the day. My county is a ” hot spot”. Numbers keep climbing and my kids are scared to death of getting sick. I have applied at a couple of schools but no luck…they are anticipating a possible shut down again. Here’s my question, can i reapply or appeal it? I need some help!

  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.
