OMG I just have to keep laughing at this.
To me it is like a cartoon
I again tried to navigate the VEC site. On line does not work. Gives message they can not authenitcate my Identity or computer. Please call the 1-800 #
When calling the same # at some point get disconnected.
So I call back aGAIN and click the prompt for "Question on your Claim" which is the ONLY WAY To get an EXISTING LIVE PERSON
Miguel, God Bless him, was so very cheerful and PATIENT and kind.
Even though he could not really do a damn thing for me. He could look at my account and confirm status
The case is "pending" with no action- no payment possible as of yet."
AND he also confirmed that
The 28 ( not 21- 28 Days * Aside this is why I failed the BAR exam. I never could remember those numbers. I got them wrong EVERY TIME for every statute of limitations on things appeals; filings of any sort...etc... on that multistate I have a knack for just getting it flat out WRONG like EVERY TIME they have a *DATA POINT as an answer for a question. Beacuse with my own disabilities I have a hell of a time recalling numbers.
I have to vent over this as it is so baffling to me that the window to get paperwork in is so short as many are completely overwealmed and need help to get paperwork done. It is not an EASY skill for most.
HONESTLY I think one policy change would be to change those dates from 21 or 28 to 60 DAYS
I mean giving people a bit more time is not going to suddenly flood any system with more claims. In fact it would DECREASE the number of NEW claims ( ARTIFICIAL NEW CLAIMS) as the current process mandates if you miss the 21 days you have to file a whole freaking new claim.
The lady at the local office was likewise kind. But I failed to ask her for the help in filing my weekly claim and wanted to focus on job hunting for this week. (Simply made sense as when I DO get in any system or get help needed I wanted to have THIS WEEKS applications in so I can report them ! Made more sense to job hunt yesterday and then go back at it today from home and if no luck will drive back TOMORROW and ask for help SPECIFICALLY with opening a NEW Claim for the prior three weeks since can't report those weekly job hunting activities on the one that apparently was CLOSED as of the 15th!
At the loss of increase of taxes to pay; and pulled out of the market when the value was 30% down from last year.
I had family help me this month. The LOAN repayment from them really has to be paid back by APRIL. That is when THEY have to pay the IRS taxes due.
Hey I read a random story that popped up today of the time Tyler Perry was audited by the IRS and they realized that the IRS OWED HIM $9 million BACK that he overpaid.
The IRS should freaking get to my tax return from last year EVENTUALLY.
I think with my tenant and the part time work I might be able to avoid disaster a couple more months. The bill collectors are calling on the piling up medical bills. Those will EVENTUALLY all get paid off once that money comes in. As Long as I can keep paying the mortgage and the utlities until then- we are good.
But back to Migeul's tranparency.
OK- tried that. Will try again; and again; and again;
It is a nice Workforce Development Center!
I was entertained by the Mayor last time. Maybe it will at least be interesting as I job hunt again.
