For those of you who have read my various posts about unemployment, and donating money to charity, I may have had some good news on my financial situation.
I worked full time for close to 20 years, and had to fight my former employer for unemployment benefits, and I lost. So, I was trying to get donations to help me through these hard times. For which I received zero.
The good news is, the decision to deny my unemployment has been overturned! So, I can start receiving benefits again. Hurray!
I had to wait almost 6 months for this decision, and was very close to being put out on the street. (Stiil very close)
I don't know how this whole thing is going to work out, but, I should get back benefits for all of the weeks that I missed. If that is the case I will get a nice sum of money in backpay. That should keep me going for several more months, while I continue to look for another job.
I am hoping to land a job in the new casino that is under construction south of town. That would be cool, and probably last for a while. But, it's just a thought.
Thanks for reading. Wish me luck!
Try making money online too! It can be easy money on the side. A little bit of effort can get you enough money for free gas... free food.. etc.
Mostly everyone qualifies for unemployment once they're terminated from a job, depending on how much they've made that year. But that's scary they cut your benefits off until the matter was resolved, cause usually once the ajudicator first decides to reward a recipient unemployment benefits, they (USUALLY) let you continue receiving them, even if the company does decide to challenge their decision. We'll at least you won... only the strong survives!!!
Best of luck to you my friend.
I was also very close until I found at just this morning that I got the Job I have been hoping for for nearly a month now. things are looking better here and once you get that fat check they will be better for you too!
Kudo's to you. yes you should receive back weeks, all of them from the first day of application if the ruling is overturned. I do get angry about this subject, it is the law that they keep unemployment insurance, and then they bypass the law by refusing to pay.
I am glad you won!
There is a way around that happening.
If you are let go from a job or whatever and you file for unemployment, find a friend who will say that you worked for them right after you left the other place and he/she had to let you go! They will go back to the previous employer for benefits and off you go!
There are ways around these chickenshit laws and sorry ass employers!
wow wish someone had told me this 6 months ago.
it would have to be claimed as self-employment type income, wouldn't it? otherwise...the gov could get your friend in trouble?
I am so pleased you got good news at last!
Any chance of a loan??
Way to go glad to hear your good news! I been doing a continuing series on the homeless and my friend we don't want you there. Good luck!!
Congrats on the overturn, and definitely wishing you luck. Being homeless is not a minor issue. I've never been (at least not for long enough to make a best selling TV miniseries about it), but my wife was homeless for nearly 3 years, just made it back "under cover" (an apartment) a couple of weeks before we meet. It's a good thing to avoid, for sure...!
Thanks for the comments. I just returned from the U.I.A. and I received a nice check from them that will keep me going until mid August, I was also approved for another 14 weeks. So, I should be good until sometime next year!
It's cool, because getting a job now will not effect the back pay. So, I'm very satisfied with the outcome. I do not understand why the original judge ruled against me. the only thing I can see is him just wanting to get it over with.
I also discovered that my former employer can not fight this new ruling. So it's good all around.
Thanks for the kind words.
Glad to hear this. I have been following your story, although not commenting.
So nice to read that things are beginning to turn for you!
Hope things work out on the job front, too.

Specifically, you have run out of benefits and you still can not find a job?
by Jim Hunter6 years ago
Thats ridiculous, if you can't find a job in your area in three years then move to where the jobs are. Unemployment is beginning to be a career for some people.

The Supreme Court is poised to rule on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). What is your opinion(s) on this issue? What are the sources of your opinion(s)?
