Have you tried calling your unemployment office during the pandemic?
I live in New Jersey, and it's impossible.
My unemployment benefits stopped without any explanation.
I have tried email, phone, mail, calling my Congressmen Frank Pallone's office.
I have not gotten any response.
My benefits stopped in May. We are now in middle of August (as of this writing), and I have not heard from the unemployment office.
At this point, I don't think I will get any needed support from the government that was promised.
So why have a program if the government can't support it?
This makes the government look totally incompetent.
Now you know why people distrust the government since they are good at creating programs fast for political gains, but terrible at providing a good experience.
