Covid-19 Unemployment Pending Status

Just another of many who is unemployed due to Covid-19.  Have been actively seeking a job once things started to go back to normal about a month  ago , but with no results.

For unknown reason to me , my current FLORIDA unemployment benefits have been put on hold since the first week of August. Only information I have is that there is an issue with  my claim, that it will be resolved.  It has been over six weeks, and there is no way to determine what the issue is or when it will be resolved. It is also impossible to contact directly as the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity is not taking calls at this time.

This also affects the additional Federal Funding that should be added to state help. In total it should normally be  $575.00 a week that is good to cover things like health insurance, utilities, and food.  It all sums up to $3,450.00 . I have set goal to around $3,000 to cover for what I have missed  till date.

I look forward to be able to get back to work sooner than later. In the meantime I am reaching out to be able to cover the amount mentioned above as it sure will help me to keep up with basic expenses.
