I was let go from my job back in December because I called out of work two days in a row because I had a horrible stomach virus. It sucked to be fired, but no big deal as I had some savings to live off of. I was pregnant at the time and applied for Medicaid so that I had insurance for my pregnancy. I ended up not being able to find work before starting to show and then it was pretty much impossible to get a job anywhere. I applied for food stamps in April because I needed a little extra help to make sure my savings could last. I figured I have paid into it all these years, I might as well be able to feel myself, fiance, and our son. Well they had me file for unemployment for some reason and I was denied (not surprised).
What I am wondering is this: After getting a million and one letters stating I was denied unemployment, I got something in the mail having me claim benefits for the last few weeks (from when I originally applied). It says right on the paper that "failure to claim weeks on the date shown at the top of this page will delay your benefits." When I went to the website, what they were having me do seemed like I was approved?! I am sooo confused. I used to file online for someone else every week (he did not have internet and it was easier than him doing it on the phone) and what I was filling out for myself today was EXACTLY what I used to do for him and he'd get his check a few days later.
Anyone have any idea of what is going on? I'd call but they are obviously closed since it's almost 7pm here in FL.
Thanks in advance!
