Is there any way I could get my work history for the past 10 years?

Q) Is there any way I could get my work history for the past 10 years? Do I have to come into the office or can you mail it to me?

A) Your local unemployment office will be able to provide you with your work history. Also if you’ve kept copies of your tax returns, you should have copies of your W2 forms as well, or Schedule SE Form 1040 if you were self-employed and paid tax on your earnings. Your W2s will specify the company you worked for, and you can use them to figure out your dates of employment. The Internal Revenue Service can supply copies of lost tax records including copies of any W2s and Form 1040s that were attached to your tax return. Please call or visit your local unemployment office and request a copy of your work history.

  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.
