ok, thanks Chad, you were more help than all the run around I got even trying to get through on the 800 number.

I do have a question, the direct deposit.. as far as the very first check issues. I wonder if they will deposit it or do a trial run though my checking account like when a person signs up for direct deposit at work.

Also, when the checks start coming in are the direct deposit credited on the next day after claiming weeks.

Most of us are probally living pay check to pay check which means no money to fall back on, it is rough.. I ran out of gas driving for the first time in my life.. this has got to get better.
Good luck to everyone.

When you do a direct deposit, it generally takes two days. I submit on Mondays and have money in my account on Wednesdays. Good luck.

I took the advice of Union Made and called Gov. Crist's office. I spoke to a secretary and she took my information and said someone from the unemployment agency will contact me.
It's the most encouragement I've received in 2 months.

I have been having a set of my own problems trying to receive my checks, But it is a long story and if you read all of the above stories. I fall in line with them. I took this website and sent it to Governor Crist. If anyone actually reads it, maybe someone will help.

And they wonder why the crime rate is directly proportional the the unemployment rate. The fucktards working at the unemployment office are just as corrupt as the Bush Administration was.

again: check my prior posts, call governor christs citizen hotline, i spoke with dustin and i received my check for $1,729 for my past due balance!

If you are not calling the governors hotline then you will never get through i talked to people who work at the call center and if someone is combative verbally they will hang up on you! you will NEVER get through and it it resolved entirely with even 5 phone calls.

you NEED to contact governor christs office.

i'm leading a movement to sign an online petition to demand that governor christ hires 200+ more phone operators at A.W.I. and open up more phone lines and online internet trouble shooting specialist so when the site is down it can be fixed momentarily,

Please list your full name and email address and send it to:

[email protected]

it will not be used for spam, i am going to make the governor aware we will not vote for him and we will not sit idly by and stand for this nonsense.

Please stand up for your rights and join this movement!

thank you in advance.

they are actually charging PRE-PAID PHONES even if you get a busy signal from unemployment so it discourages the poor from calling!

If you need phone numbers or names for the governors office i can help.

just email:

[email protected]

i will do all i can to get your unemployment checks asap!

Vince :)

Mary is the secretary at charlie christs office.

Dustin has helped me the most actually out of all the aids.

the number for those who are newbies to this game od manipulation is (and i have to spell it since this site does not allow numbers)
eight five zero-four eight eight-four four four one

ask for mary or dustin to call agency for workforce innovation number since you cannot get through via internet or the 1-800 number. they have a special line they wont give out the number but they will call on your behalf, ask them to stay on the phone with you so when they call the operator is aware it is the governors office calling on your behalf!!!!!!!!!!

email me with any and all questions, i want to help all the people who do not want to play this game, i will do the fighting for YOU!!!!!!

I do hope you are right. Not only I lost my job but my landlord is foreclosing the house. He stopped makinjg payment after we moved and we got a letter the property would foreclose and now is in court. So the I decided to leave so I don't end up homeless with my children and husband and decided to stop making payments for 2 months since he has the last and security which equal the a month rent each! So in Feb we did not pay and in Mar we receive an eviction notice. On top of that he is listing the property on craigslist for rent. He just wants money. The guy is not working probable collecting unemplyment and the SALARY we payed him each month he did not pay his mortgage.

Corrections to my typo erros. Goodness am I sleepy or what?

I hope you are right. Not only I lost my job but my landlord is foreclosing the house. He stopped making mortgage payments soon after we moved. In December we got a letter that the property is in foreclosure. So, then I decided to leave so I don't end up homeless with my children and husband, and decided to stop making payments for 2 months since he has the last and security which equal a month rent each! So in Feb we did not pay and in Mar we receive an eviction notice. On top of that, he is listing the property on craigslist for rent. He just wants money. The guy is not working so probably he is collecting unemployment and the SALARY we pay to him each month he did not pay his mortgage.

3.7 Uninsured Floridians and alot of them are unemployed.

How are they made aware of the guaranteed health coverage signed in by Gov. Charlie Christ to assist them.

www.coverfloridaplus.com

not to mention 50% are cashing in their 401K. how do you retire with no pensions, no 401k, no home equity and no Social Security. Every 8 seconds a person turns 65yrs old in the U.S. Babyboomers abound.

Ok, I called the phone number that College Degree spoke about at the governers office and low and behold William from the unemployment office called me back,in one hour from the time I called. I needed to claim several weeks for the web site has disaloud any claims from me due to an appeal in my case. He took care of it,and set me up for more weeks to come.He also gave me his personal office number to call if I need more help with it later on down the road.all he could tell me was this department was unprepared for the number of unemployed in this state.Well I say get with the program!!! This has been going on long enough,they should make drastic changes to this department!!! I will even offer to work for them so the people of this state would have someone there that would give a shi- about them and listen to their problems.And would do every thing in my power to help all of us unemployed people in the state of Florida!

Newbies to this site: call governor Christ's office and ask for DUSTIN.Tell him you call and can't get through and someone from AWI "unemployment" will call you back same day!
Also here is the latest info on the unemployment extension 2009 i had to research to find this so i hope you appreciate it:

Sec. 2001) Amends the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2008, as amended by the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2008, to extend the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program through December 31, 2009. Prohibits a Tier-2 augmentation to an individual&apos;s emergency unemployment compensation account (EUCA) after December 31, 2009, if the EUCA is exhausted after such date. Extends the period of emergency unemployment compensation through May 31, 2010. Requires the Secretary of the Treasury to transfer unappropriated funds from the general fund of the Treasury to the extended unemployment compensation account and the employment security administration account in such sums as the Secretary of Labor estimates for payments to states for the extended EUC program and the costs of program administration. Appropriates such funds, without fiscal year limitation and repayment requirements.
(Sec. 2002) Authorizes a state to enter into an agreement with the Secretary of Labor providing for additional unemployment compensation, including an additional $25 per week. Prescribes optional state payment methods. Requires federal payments to states that have entered into such agreements to cover 100% of such payments to individuals and any associated additional state administrative expenses. Appropriates from the general fund of the Treasury, without fiscal year limitation, funds necessary for such additional unemployment compensation payments. Limits the coverage of such federal-state agreements to weeks of unemployment ending before January 1, 2010. Prohibits additional compensation payments to individuals still entitled to it as of January 1, 2010, for any week beginning after June 30, 2010. Applies to such additional unemployment compensation payments the requirements of the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2008 for handling fraud and EUC overpayments. Requires disregard of monthly payments of such additional compensation in considering an individual&apos;s income for title XIX (Medicaid) and title XXI (State Children&apos;s Health Insurance Program)(SCHIP) of the Social Security Act
