  1. I applied for partial unemployment on March 22, 2020. I claimed my first weekly benefit on 03/29/20 since that was the first week that my hours were reduced in half due to the covid19 virus. I received a notice stating claimant of benefit determination letter on 03/30/20 which has the weekly benefit rate and maximum benefit amount. Than I received another letter for unemployment insurance directions. I followed the directions and filed a weekly claim on 04/04/20. Than i received a questionnaire in my email which I filed out but forgot to attached my letter from work stating that they were cutting my hours from 40 hr to 20 hr per week until further notice due to the covid 19 virus. I never heard anything back since the questionnaire and every time I claim my weekly benefits it say in an email that my claim is not payable at this time? I can not get in touch with anyone on the phone to fix this and I never received a denial letter to appeal not getting paid.As of this week my employer has furloughed me until further notice of the reopening of my office. Its now been 5 weeks since I applied and after next week I will no longer have any incoming and I don’t know how to resolve this. I have been working since I was 16 and never did I not have a job. I have never used unemployment. Please help.

  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.
