no money since beginning of October. I’ve lost my job

I was a server at a restaurant when covid pandemic started. My employer was forced to close due to state/ nationwide pandemic curfew. That was in March, I’m told my unemployment will be backdated & I will receive $. I recently in the beginning of October, I hd to switch to pua & the connect system is messed up. Now I haven’t been able to claim my benefits, so no money since beginning of October. I’ve lost my job, rental home, car & desperately need my back benefits as well as my current , I call unemployment twice a week at least to get information as to when the problem will be fixed. Im trying to support my family. When I call Im told they are aware of the problem, its not just me & I don’t need to call, they are working on it. Who can help then?? Apparently I don’t qualify for the cares act assistance that was just advertised in Sarasota county to help with back bills. I’ve already lost everything & no help to move into a place or get another car!!! I’m frustrated, who can help my family?

  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.
