  1. I need to get a hold of the claimant office. I have been trying to get benefits since September 2020. I have followed the instructions that you have given me to receive benefits. The telephone automated system has reported that my benefits were sent out three times, but not to me. I had a person who contacted me to vertify my identity. I still have not received one payment. I need to know when I will be receiving my benefits.

    • Benita,

      Trying to get a physical agent might be next to impossible. Please see if you can sort it online, on the department’s official website.

  2. I need to get ahold of someone in regards to my case. When i tried to check my benefits status i am told to contact my office which says is closed or the call wont even go through. I need to know when i will be receiving my benefits and its almost impossible to get ahold of any human

    • We understand this might be a difficult time for you. We’re anticipating a shortage of staff across unemployment offices due to the massive surge in UI applications considering the pandemic. We advise against calling or visiting the office, as you may not get a response instantly.

      Your state may have activated “Extended Benefits (EB)” authorized by the federal government. We recommend you apply for UI benefits online. For more information, please visit your state’s official Unemployment website.
