My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: GA
I'm new and in desperate need of help!
I've been receiving unemployment payments since April 1st. I moved to CA a few days ago and completed a one day freelance project. When I reported it during the weekly certification process last Monday, I received a message saying that my claim cannot be processed and I had to report to 'the office'.
So I called GA DOL and told them I have to change my address and also somehow report to the office to resolve my claim issue. I was told that I had to go to the nearest DOL location in CA and fill out some form there. I called CA DOL and was able to change my address over the phone.
In order to report my income, I was told I had to call GA DOL again! In the meantime, I got no money for that week, and won't be getting paid for freelancing for another month (Net 30 terms). I went online to check the status of that week's claim just to find out that MY PIN HAS BEEN SUSPENDED!!! So I won't be able to certify next week, either. And won't get paid at all until SOMEONE tells me what the heck I have to do!!! This is so ridiculous! I regret that I accepted that freelance job in the first place and can totally understand why so many people are not reporting their additional income!!!! The government is not making it easy for us!!!
Anyway, I am trying to see if anyone has been through this and how it all worked out. Thanks
