Q) Good day, Dear Sir or Madame, my name is Anthony E***h M****h. I have major problems with unemployment PUA. I have been certifying every week since March 14. I was approved on May 1, 2020. I need help! I currently have been waiting since March 8th. I am now on week 23 with no success. I need help. It’s like I am lost in the system. I can see my certifications but no money or response. They won’t answer the phone or email. I am at the end please can someone call them and make them call me. I would appreciate any assistance. My family is in a dire situation. I have called the office for months and email to no success. I would appreciate any help. I have grandchildren to feed. I try not to get frustrated, angry or worry but it’s very difficult when you don’t have support. I have written both senators of Georgia “Perdue & Kelley” Mr Ed Harbison, labor Commissioner Mr Butler, White House and Mr Calvin Smyre but no success. I really don’t know what to do all who emailed be back tell me they given my information to the Georgia department of Labor and someone will call but again nothing. I just need someone to work on my behalf. I was given a Sherita Crayton but she told me she don’t Handel PUA cases. I don’t understand if you work there why not give my case to someone who does PUA. This just hurts. I appreciate any help in advance
A) I’m sorry to hear about the difficulties you’ve been experiencing with your unemployment claim. I don’t have the ability to call the Georgia Department of Labor or work on your behalf, but I can provide some suggestions on what you can do.
First, have you tried contacting your local state representative or state senator? They may have more direct connections with the Georgia Department of Labor and can advocate on your behalf. You can find your representative’s contact information on the Georgia General Assembly website.
Second, have you tried reaching out to the Georgia Legal Services Program? They provide free legal assistance to low-income individuals and may be able to help you with your unemployment claim.
Lastly, you can also try reaching out to local nonprofit organizations such as the United Way or Goodwill. They may have resources or connections to assist you.
I hope these suggestions are helpful, and I wish you the best of luck in resolving your unemployment claim.
