I worked for an employer for 6 years, told I wouldn’t get certain hours. Would this qualify for unemployment benefits?

Q) I worked for an employer for 5 or 6 years and they sold out to someone who at first seemed like it was going to be fairly similar. But after three years, procedures were being changed almost on a weekly basis. This being on-going for a month or so, I started getting things confused and for that reason I was demoted and told I wouldn’t get any certain hours. I haven’t quit yet, for money reasons, but would this qualify as a legitimate reason to be able to get unemployment benefits? I have two children that I am concerned about. Thank you.

A) Depending on your state unemployment benefits requirements, you may be entitled to unemployment insurance if your hours were cut. If you were working full time for an employer and your hours were cut back. You may be eligible for partial unemployment benefits. Visit your state unemployment benefits website for more information and apply for benefits you may be entitled to.

  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.
