  1. I’ve been trying to file unemployment for a week now… I am a waitress in Dallas and for some reason I can’t file online because my Social Security does not match my user name or pin number… That’s all I need is those two things… Do I need to come to this office to file… Because the number provided I’ve been calling for a week now And can’t get that either…
