Unemployment Insurance Questions

Sounds to me like it didn't take and you've missed a few weeks.
Why wouldn’t it take and why would I miss a few weeks? I filed every week since being unemployed. My employer filled out the required paperwork in due time. What’s left for me to do?

You gotta call them. Have you claim number handy and be prepared to wait.

The Unemployement office is taking its customer service queues from the Motor Vehicle Administration.

This is the most frustrating thing ever. Even when I call I press 5 to speak with an operator and it says they’re all busy, goodbye. It’s been one month now and still no card. I just don’t know what to do at this point.

Who's your State Delegate? My son got licked out of the system, in mid-April, because of a mis-worded question on the Weekly Webcert when they first switched over to the Beacon Website. We contacted Brian Crosby and DLL called my son that day and fixed the problem. In fact, they completely reworded the messed up question and sent an email out to everyone because a lot of other people had the same issue. So, at this point, contact your State Delegate. They have a legislative liaison who will help you out.

Thank you so much for this information! I was able to locate 2 delegates for my county. I am emailing and calling them now. I hope this gets me somewhere.

I was laid off on 4/17. I filed my unemployment that same day. I have yet to receive my card and when I’m logged into beacon it says “
There are no Payment Information on this claim.”
How much longer do I have to wait to receive a card and have access to my funds? This is super frustrating.

Hang in there. I filed on March 24th, and I had to wait 7 weeks for mine. 🙄 I went back to work on Monday of the 7th week.

Go to the Facebook page for the Department of Labor. There are a lot of posts related to different messages that people were receiving in error. I'm not sure if that's one of the messages or not but there are a lot of different glitches.

I'm happy to report that while it took me seven weeks to get UI payment (basically, all of it at once) it did not take that long for them to stop the payments!!! The response time to that action item was immediate!

In fact, I've already gotten email notification and a letter in the mail. 👍👍

It appears that on 5/11 monies began being allocated towards my wife's PUA claim, but she's still not received her approval letter from DOL and no sign of any money yet.
Update: Out of the blue with no warning, my wife received her debit card on Monday. I was surprised it was loaded with only one week's benefit, but it's better than nothing.

Doesn't that just piss you off? Unacceptable.

My co-worker and I noticed that this weeks deposit into our debit cards was less. Is that because last Monday was a holiday?

Did you elect to have taxes removed? My wife's benefits started inexplicably being about $200 less. The only thing I can think of is that they finally reviewed her letter and started taking taxes out. About 5 weeks after her initial benefit payout. :lol:

Sure did. I'll go back and do the math to see if that makes sense. I'll be pissed if that's true.
