I applied for benefits over a year ago. After some time my case was approved/moved forward and I received 1 payment for 1 week of unemployment. After that pay out my case went back into “Pending” status and I have to received anything since or heard of any progress in my cae. It has now been 6 monthes since I was initially paid and approaching a year and 1/2 that my case has been open. I call every week and my case gets “escaleted” – which means absolutely nothing! How can these people say they are doing their jobs? Im ready to work – how about I come take the job(s) these people are pretending to do. Totally unacceptable for a state/government agency in the United States!
