Questions & Answers

  1. Trish says:

    I have tried continuously to contact the office because I received a notice telling me that I was NOT eligible for benefits since I didn’t make enough at my job. The job you have on file isn’t my most recent and I need to change this information so that I can receive payment as soon as possible. Who can I contact? What extension? I am not able to make this change online…please help!
