Can I sue the state if they do not give me my unemployment insurance checks?
They said that I was qualified but after 6 months I have not gotten a check. I filed each week but the only thing I recieved was a letter saying that I would not be paid because I didn't file for the week before. I have a stack of letters from the state saying the same thing everytime that I filed. I tried to call butonly got a recorded message telling me to call back later and that has been going on for the pass 6 months. I think that they are ducking my calls. Everytime that I give my pin number and social I don't get to talk to real person.
If you have filed all the required documents, and you have been awarded unemployment benefits, you should be receiving your checks in a timely manner. I don't know the facts of your case or why you are not getting answers from the unemployment office.
Federal law usually requires the states to process benefits in a timely manner. I would contact the U.S. Department of Labor (1-877-889-5627) to complain about the lack of communication from the state unemployment office. Perhaps the Department will contact the state office and this will result in the timely process of your claim.
You can also consult with an attorney in your area. After reviewing all the facts of your case, the attorney can determine if you have a legal right to sue the state. Good luck.
