Q) I am desperate for help and I hope that you can assist me. I filed for unemployment benefit insurance and have received no money. I have 4 payments in my payment history of $0 but a balance of $12,662. I have called every number, faxed, emailed, tried to schedule phone appointments but every attempt fails. Were about to be evicted. Please help, please
A) I’m sorry to hear that you’re going through such a difficult situation. I’m unable to take direct action on your behalf, but I can provide some suggestions that may help you resolve your issue.
First, I would recommend that you continue to try to reach out to the relevant authorities by phone or email, and be persistent. If you have been trying to contact them for a while and haven’t had any success, try to escalate your case to a supervisor or manager. If you’re unable to get through on the phone or by email, you may want to try visiting a local unemployment office in person to seek assistance.
In addition to reaching out to the authorities, there are a few other things you can do to help resolve the issue. Consider gathering any documentation or evidence that you have, such as proof of your unemployment status and any correspondence you’ve had with the authorities. This may help you make your case more effectively and ensure that the authorities have all the necessary information to process your claim.
It’s also important to keep in mind that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there may be delays in processing unemployment claims and other government services. While this may be frustrating, it’s important to remain patient and persistent in your efforts to resolve the issue.
If you’re facing eviction and need immediate assistance, you may want to reach out to local community organizations or nonprofits that offer emergency financial assistance or rental assistance programs. These organizations may be able to provide you with temporary financial assistance to help you stay in your home while you work to resolve your unemployment claim.
I hope these suggestions help and wish you the best in resolving your situation.
