  1. I called the 800 number and they told me after looking at my claim they are unable to provide any details about my claim and said to call this number ext 2934 for more information what does this mean?

    • Chad,

      It perhaps means the file/application is pending with someone specific at the Unemployment Office. Please keep trying. The representatives may be busy due to the surge in the number of applications.

      I suggest you talk to the Claims Center to understand why your claim is still in the pipeline and take measures accordingly to speed up the process.
