This is ridiculous. I tried to certify using the number provided on the Tennessee Unemployment website; if you have a hearing problem as I do it is nearly impossible. I filled out all the forms for unemployment at a career center in my city. Then I called in the first Sunday after I submitted a claim. I had to repeatedly call back because of my hearing impediment. I read somewhere on the site that if you miss certifying for a week you lose your benefits for that week, is that correct? So this is just a way to cheat citizens out of unemployment?
