I forgot to certify for my benefits, what step do I need to take to get benefits?

unemployed_personQ) I forgot to certify for my benefits on 10/23, what step do I need to take in order to get my benefits?

A) Some state unemployment websites will allow you to certify for a prior missed week. If your state website does not allow this you need to call (or visit your local unemployment office and speak with your unemployment counselor. He or She can make this adjustment in the system.

  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.
