  1. I have been trying for over a month to get my unemployment claim paid. I cannot claim it online and I’ve been on hold for hours. This is absolutely insane, I was actually just laid off and not just sitting around this past year. I need these benefits and have never even claimed them before. I’ve done everything I can and have not been able to reach anyone.
