One agent told me they will have to investigate because they were sent and she gave me the check numbers i never got them so now i have to wait for a for investigation which could take months i don't have money and i am ready for a nervous breakdown. Any suggestions please

Unemployment sends you a preloaded debit card with your unemployment funds on them! They haven't sent paper checks in a long time because of this issue. When you receive unemployment compensation, your benefits may be paid via a debit card (also known as a direct payment card or electronic payment card). The card will be provided to you by your state unemployment office. It will be mailed to you once your claim is approved. I suggest you go onto the unemployment web site and check.

Thank you yes I have the debit card but that's for the regular unemployment state I'm talkin about the $600 checks I don't have direct deposit so that does not come but only by paper check and I haven't gotten them I've gotten a few was supposed to get 17 and I got six so I'm missing 11 and I'm having to argue with them because they're saying that they sent them and I can't prove that they sent them so now it's a big thing for them to find the missing checks and I don't even know if that's a scam because I just don't want to send them to me but I did not receive 17 $600 checks that I can promise you

Depends on the state. Oregon still delivers the first check by paper and the rest are on the card or direct deposit. Because of the backlog, my cousin got 8 checks in the mail all at once. 

Thank you all for the advice I am getting my unemployment from the state on a prepaid debit card but my federal $600 check they're all backed up that's what they're telling me and on the computer you can see that they were sent and processed on the computer it says that I received three checks and one day back in May I never received three checks ever so that is my fight they said I received checks in April I received one check my fight is that they owe me a lot of back $600 checks that they sent out and it's been processed that's what it says on the computer and I never received them that's my fight😡😡

Hi

Either:

- the post office still has your checks sitting in a back room

- the UE computer is wrong

- someone stole your checks. 

My vote is post office back office since the federal government won’t give them enough money.

But you also can see if the checks were cashed.  Even if they weren’t cashed and it might be the UE office’s mistake, you can still then put a stop payment on them and get them resent.

If your post office is not delivering all its mail you are out of luck because they won’t give it to you if you go down there  

Maybe you can get it direct deposit

Thank you for the reply yes I've been to my local post office and they they do not have mail there for me the UE is not wrong do we have my co-workers and my neighbor who all have direct deposit all got 17 checks my neighbor just got $10,000 put in her account for all her back checks because of the direct deposit but I do believe that it is not the government it is definitely the Postal Service I did not know that they did not send help during the pandemic like they did with the Frontline workers doctor ,nurses so it makes sense that things would be delayed I just need to put my faith and God and hope that I get my back checks I'm in the middle of filing for bankruptcy and I cannot open up a checking account due to that. It's complicated don't want to put all my personal business out there but thank you if anybody has any advice I surely appreciate everyone on here

I will need to apply for Medicare and have been studying up on the tax implications. I’m realizing that I need to find a good tax specialist in retirement. Anyone have any referrals, preferably a specialist who is knowledgeable about Medicare. I have read not all tax specialists are familiar with tax laws on Medicare. Between inflation, Covid-19, increasing taxes, increasing Medicare costs, and the uncertainty in the market, I believe that without serious planning, it’s going to be rough on retirees who don’t stay ahead of the tax man. 

If you were actually able to talk to a live person at the unemployment office you are very lucky I have friends who have been trying to get there unemployment checks for 7 weeks as for me I have been waiting for 4 weeks and there is no way to talk to anyone with the numbers that have been provided. All you keep getting is a recording .  It is very frustrating !  

Just FYI, the Federal Government gives the Post Office zero money. They never have. Although they are a government agency, they are a for profit organization that operates on the sales of stamps, postage and other merchandise. The reason they are so far in debt is because the government forces them to pay into a retirement fund 75 years in advance. Yes, they already funding the retirement of people who might not work for them 50 years from now.

I have been trying to get my unemployment from both the state of Florida and the Federal Govt. All I get are recordings as well when I call into the DEO office. My boyfriend has only received one check so far. We have been living in our car for months (random hotel stays when we can afford it). I love how the House and Congress want to debate over how much money we should get... if any at all. I am sick to my stomach with the State of This Nation. I watch people who just walk by the EVER RISING number of homeless people (now included in this group). I think it's disgusting how the FEDERAL & STATE GOVT COULD CARELESS ABOUT ALL OF US!!! People judge (usually middle-class judging middle and lower class...) instead of helping each other. It's so painful to watch people ATTEMPT to act like everything is normal while this country falls apart. WE ARE NOT NAMELESS... WE ARE HUMANS!!! WE ARE NOT NOTHING... WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CO-WORKERS, PARISHIONERS, ETC!!! 

Sorry... I ranted on there... Yes, I too am having Unemployment Payment issues lol. I will keep you in my prayers... WE ALL NEED THEM!!

Love and blessings, 

Meg

 

Hi

Yes. This situation gives me nightmares and wakes me up at night. Then they are talking about terminating Social Security permanently (payroll tax for social security). People don’t realize that current workers are paying for us old people. And they will hopefully have youngsters to pay for them when they retire.
