I did try ks dept of labor and now says does not recognize my pswd or user name and has blocked my account. This is very bizarre. Earlier today when I called said the number was not in service. Now the number is working but stillcannot get into the site. Am I caught up in the Ks unemployment twilight zone, geez. Any other suggestions?

I find no joke in my being without a job. After 35 years in the health field and turning 63, my position was "eliminated" in June of last year. The only joke is your thinking and that you are supporting me, you are not. I paid into unemployment for many, many years. It is not easy to work for a fast food chain because believe it or not, I can't get hired because I am over qualified to sell burgers for gosh sakes. They think once I find something better, I will leave, yes probably. Since you have the time to post something hurtful to those of us who genuinely are in need of jobs, you could try to do something meaningful that will turn this country around in their thinking that after 55 you are useless. I can assure you, I am not. By the by, my unemployment runs out this week and although I was sent an emergency unemployment form, I have heard nothing more so does anyone know if this means I will still get my benefits. Trying to contact someone by phone is impossible!!!

When I try to file my weekly claim a message appears that the system is unavailable and try again later. I have been trying for over four hours. I also cannot get through to the contact center as phone message says office is closed, and of course when I try tomorrow to inform them I could not file my claim I will be on hold for AT LEAST an hour if I even get through. I just don't get it.

I hate it. So much. I need more money to support myself. Luckily I had an interview this week for a position that pays very well...but until I can land a job, I'm in shitsville.

Does anyone know what day my money is supposed to post? I was getting it on Tuesday's, and now it's on Wednesday's. Does it post at 12:01 am on Wed.? I haven't eaten a damn thing since 9 am and I about ready to go postal. Does it post at 12:01 am? Citi's hotline says 12:01 eastern time is when it posts, so that would mean 11:01 central time, but it isn't there. Do I need to wait another hour? I'm serious at my wits end here. I'm starving!!

I am pissed. The first week of June 2012 a representative at UA said I had 20 weeks left (ending the later part of Sept 2012). This week no money. They said that if my Tier II ended June 23rd or earlier I would get Tier III. Mine ended June 23rd BUT now they said Obama gave us 4% which gave me one more week and it was paid June 30th, therefore because of this fricking 4% I am no longer eligible for Tier III. I am so pissed. I had no warning. Nothing.
Very upset

I know when I was receiving unemployment, it took about two weeks after the KDOL website said payment was mailed to get it. So frustrating - I hope you get it soon.

Thank you I was afraid of that.. It seems this system is completely inconsiderate of the needs of those of us who need it.

Wow, reading all this puts me at ease (atleast having some info/expectation) and adds tension at the same time. I have tried calling in to ask questions over 50 times and have never talked to anybody. I have been filing weekly claims for 3 weeks now. The first one was obviously the "waiting period". The other day, I logged online and found some decent news that said "Date Payment Mailed" Dec 4th, 2012. Does that really mean anything? From my understanding that payment is supposed to go on a debit card. I've never received a debit card, had a phone interview, or filled out any forms manually. The only thing I got in the mail was the determination letter saying you have $7,800 in unemployment and then i saw that update online. Am i even approved? I'm just so confused. Any help is appreciated.

If it states payment mailed, you should have it posted to the debit card. Seems they take forever to get that to you.

Sounds like your former employer is fighting the claim, for whatever reason. You'll probably be getting a letter soon with a date for a telephone interview scheduled. Happened to me too - frustrating because it took several weeks to start getting payments again.

How long does it take to get extended benefits after you send application in?

I am in tears, so I will pass this on. I have been getting unemployment for a while. I received the letter on extention last month, which says some qualifies for the extension, and they continued to pay each week..So wouldnt you think you qualify? Yesterday I received a letter saying I didnt make enough money in the quarter they are using to qualify for that extention (last month). SO benefits stopped last month--(WHAT)---after the fact that they sent me 6 WEEKS of weekly funds---that is, in my case about $1,800.00 that I am guessing I will have to repay..I also heard others have to repay! Without a job, how do they expect us to pay. Why dont they stop payments of weekly funds until they see if you qualify or not for the extention? SO BEWARE!
you are getting the runaround but your congressman are getting paid for doing zilch, your very own congressman Huelskamp and family are getting their 3.5 million direct payment in farm subsidies while cutting foods stamps by 40 billion, hypocrits
