  1. Unemployed | May 26, 2020

    I was unemployed back in March. I attempted to apply online and my account was locked. I was told to call the number and talk to someone directly to open my account again. This week, May 24th, I am finally able to apply. 

    Will I be payed for all of March and April payments that were missed because they locked my account and the phones were clogged up? 

    Will any of these payments even go through in my lifetime?

    This is bullshit 

  2. William Shawn | May 24, 2020

    im in new jersey and I didnt recieve the extra 60p as well . its 5p/50 this oast week here in jersey .no explanations . no excuse . no info . thats why im on a kansas forum reading trying to figure out why I didnt recieve !

     

    But here in jersey same thing. Ive recived 3 weeks in a row in PUA and NJUA and this week no 600 .

     

    Happened to many here. Others got it.  Idk what kind of messed up lottery they have going on . praying next week will be different .

     

    It must be above your state level because im in the hardest git region there is.  We are still under lockdown by governer .

     

    And than to not sensd us the promised 600. After getting it for two weeks already. It has to be a fed problem . they couldnt print fast enough maybe. 

     

    And do we just lose that money now ? It is ours . were entitled to it . I pray next week they double it up for those who they didnt give it to .

    this sucks
  5. Annoyed | May 22, 2020

    cant get through on the phone, they still haventpaid out the 600$ on May 14th, only my state   Pay, but it says paid! I finally got my back pay,  But iv been claiming since March 29th and they still shorted me by 600$!!!! Someone needs to get this fixed, or get someone bigger involved!

  6. Jason Halliburton | May 21, 2020

    I still have not recieved that $600 from last week the system says was paid out but in fact it was not. Also, why is the additional $600 counting towards regular unemployment?

  7. Allen McCasland | May 21, 2020
    I exhausted my benefits 2 weeks ago but got $600 + the remaining balance of my account of $171. for a $771. total then got $1800. the week of May 9. I filed as usual for May 16 and received nothing. What happened to the extension and the $600. until July 25 and I thought the FPEC picked up and paid your regular benefit amount plus the $600. when you exhausted your benefits. Please help, I'm confused

    KDOL announces processing of FPUC back paymentsby Audri Smith | May 15, 2020Kansas Secretary of Labor Delía García confirmed that with the recently increased bank limits for payouts, KDOL successfully processed $99,828,060 in Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) overnight. The more than $99 million represents not only the weekly payments due, but the vast majority of back payments that were remaining. Payments should hit bank accounts by Monday or Tuesday at the latest and debit cards could see the money as early as later today or Saturday.

    I was told that the letter of Immediate Release on May 15th by Garcia stating all back pay would be paid out by Tues is not correct. The claims adjuster for unemployment told me to disregard that notice. The claims adjuster said that notice was not true. She said she has spoke to others today, not just me that has not recieved it. She told me it can be several weeks because the system will not allow it to send payments out.

    1) Why did Garcia put out that notice, if it's not true.Why did she not come out with another press release explaining the delay for several more weeks, ( which is being told to us by her employee at unemployment) It looks bad when a employee tells us to disregard her bosses immediate release posted on the website. Which we take seriously because it came from Garcia herself.

    2) If the reason as to why we didnt get the money months ago is because of the cap, and she said the cap has been lifted, why didnt everyone get paid by Tuesday as the release statement posted said it would be?

    Was the release document Fake News?

    Can someone in government for Kansas give us some real concrete news please. It seems the release of partial of the people,  was so some could say they got paid, that way it would calm the masses.

    Did you really think the ones that did not get paid, would stay SILENT?!

  11. William T Goessele | May 20, 2020
    what good does it do when they don't email us back with some answers. Someone has to have a way to tell the government that Kansas department of labor is withholding our money, and what I believe is they are broke and juggling money around, knowing that we can't do a thing about it. I have emailed kdol several times and they refuse to email back.

    Whay does Claim for Week Ending 16-May-2020This week is not being paid while an issue is resolved. StatusPending ?
  13. William T Goessele | May 19, 2020
    I have only received 3 weeks back pay when I should have received at least 4 weeks. I emailed kdol last week and they said they couldn't pay it all at once and that it would all be paid. Here it is another week without getting it and can't get a reply to my email. It's very frustrating that the government provided that money to Kansas department of labor and they won't release it all to us non workers now.
  14. Richard | May 19, 2020
    it says to apply on a monday to receive  you back pay. My last name starts with M . And on one site it says apply sunday after noon. And Tuesday  and Thursday. But the back payment site . Says to apply on monday to get back pay. What do I do
  15. Dean | May 19, 2020
    When I called in, I was told they cannot pay me the back pay until sometime in June. They said also, if your benifits run out you dont get the 600.00 extra anymore. She told me if you get put on extention then you still dont get the 600.00 because the 600 was only for regular unemployment. I have not recieved anything for 2 weeks now and when I call in to get answers they tell me they have to type in my question and wait for a answer, which took up to 10 minute . Per question. The person whom I was talking to had no knowledge of the process. She had to have been at home, I could hear a dog barking alot in the back ground. I told her, that the release said it would all be paid out by Tues, after sending my question in, she said that the response she got was that the new information states, that ks backpay will start going out as early as the end of the month of May. So, I'm dumb founded because the call center is telling me a different story than the online print from actual dol website. Also, info from news coverage. Why am I talking to a person in call center, that has to email someone ed one else before answering my questions, shouldn't they all have the correct information and be informed of what is going on?
  16. KF | May 19, 2020
    I finally received my back pay this morning, but only HALF of it...anybody else experience this??
  17. Anna | May 19, 2020

    Thanks for the back pay. But where is the $600 for the may 9th week? I know how to count...

  18. Mary | May 19, 2020

    Why does it say Claim for Week Ending 16-May-2020This week is not being paid while an issue is resolved

    Status:pending

  19. Jason Halliburton | May 18, 2020
    Yes, I got the back pay they owed me but I did not get the $600 from last week even though it shows they paid it out.
  20. crapshoot | May 18, 2020
    what are the odds we will be getting the 600 for this week..
  21. AS | May 18, 2020

    My bank now shows being deposited tomorrow my Back Pay plus the 600 it said it paid last week but didn't

    So there is hope I pray you all get yours in time to help you out

  22. plainlittleoleMAGAme | May 18, 2020
     SHUT THE FUCK UP LISA!
  23. viv | May 18, 2020
    so, what to do when the system said it paid the $600,but only the weekly benefit was paid? Also, im only concerned since the $600 is being deducted from my overall allowance anyway. How and when can i expect to see the $600 deposited from the May 9th claim?

  25. Virginia Frank | May 17, 2020
    I have been trying to get unemployment since march 9.  Ive called kansas governors office, senator morans office,emailed his staff, called sharice davids, and nobody steps up for me
  26. Virginia Frank | May 17, 2020

    im not even sure if i filed the PUA claim correctly.  Do i put our joint checking number and routing number, or my personal savings account and routing number?  Email me nafaica77@gmail.com please!  

    When does the PUA start?

  27. wesley | May 17, 2020

    To be eligible for the 10 week extension you could not have applied for unemployment before January 1st 2020. 

    I feel this is unfair since we are all having to go through the same hardships as everyone else. I am a member of a local union and had to apply 2 weeks in September do to schooling. I was later laid off on January 8th and have exausted my unemployment. Since I had used 2 weeks before January 1st of 2020, I now get none of the extention benefits. PUA says I'm inactive and I doubt I will get any more money until I'm eligible again in September. This is unfair. Nobody is hiring do to COVID-19 and I'm getting close to being out of money. Is there a petition for getting the 10 weeks extended or any other ideas?

  28. John | May 17, 2020
    Doesn't seem like the <a href="https://home.treasury.gov/policy-issues/cares">CARES Act</a> is working for all Americans after all!
  29. Joshua | May 17, 2020
    Waiting on the CARES act paypment, and backpayments...
  30. Sarah | May 17, 2020
    lol the system is overwhelmed. Not a damn thing Kelly OR ANYONE can do about it. I didnt get my money either but grow the hell up and be patient. YOU WILL GET IT
  31. SW | May 17, 2020
    i got my $600 two weeks in a row (no back pay yet), then the site said it paid me the $600, but it did not! How are we supposed to survive?
  32. Lisa Way | May 16, 2020
    Ready to fight for freedom? This right here? Is why we don't want to depend in the government to save us. Where is the money Laura Kelly? Where is all of the backpay the site says is coming? The money that shows on the Unemployment website? Where is it? Why can no one ever talk to a live person on the phone? I too am neither Republican or Democrat. I was pleased when you took office because Governor Brownback was a disaster. He DESTROYED Kansas and I trusted you to clean up that mess. I realize this Pandemic cant be easy for you, but you have yet to address your public to even inform them what is happening with our money. So Laura Kelly? You should have kept people informed but you didn't and its feeling deliberate. All the while the pinch doesn't effect you. You getting paid by our money and making your mortgage and its business as usual for you. YOU HAVE REFUSED TO INFORM KANSANS OF YOUR PLAN,WITH REGARD TO OUR MONEY, BECAUSE YOU REFUSE TO LISTEN TO THEYTHE VOICE OFPOF YOUR PEOPLE, WE WILL COME TO YOU. YOUR WEBSITE SUCKS!. YOU TRY LEAVING AN INTELLIGENT COMMENT ON THIS SITE AND SEE HOW MUCH FUN IT IS... ANYONE WHO WANTS TO MEET IN TOPEKA TO ADDRESS THIS GOVERNMENT IN A PEACEFUL, REASONABLE MANOR, EMAIL plainlittleoleMAGAme@gmail.com. Ive never organized a protest, but i believe its time to step up!  LAURA KELLY YOU WILL HEAR MY VOICE UNTIL I HEAR YOURS WITH A PLAN!  plainlittleoleMAGAme ����
  33. Jorden | May 16, 2020
    Didn't receive my 600 or back pay.... Kinda suckswe all have bills to pay.. wished they'd put some information on why we aren't getting the back pay or a estimation on when we'll get it
  34. Rebecca mitchell | May 16, 2020
    i havent received my 600.00 this week . What the hell 
  35. John Doe | May 16, 2020
    Where is my hard earned money that was withheld from my paychecks for the last 30 years? Did not receive my 600.00 this week, also have not received 600.00 back payments that total 3,000.00 Help help help
  36. Jennifer E | May 16, 2020
    i finally received my unemployment plus the $600 federal$, its its real guys!!😁
  37. Realist | May 16, 2020
    That’s funny I think it’s more likely that the unemployment office is ran by Democrats and that’s the reason it’s all hosed up. They took our money and went and bought some of Nancy Pelosi’s ice cream.  Bon appétit
  38. Robbie | May 16, 2020
    i’ve totally lost track of what they actually owe me… Impossible to get through on the phone no information posted on their website.  This is pretty much ridiculous.
  39. bernie sanders | May 16, 2020

    The problem is that years and years of republican leadership in kansas has hamstrung the whole system on purpose in an  attempt to make it harder for people to get their benefits. now with the rise in unemployment the system is catastrophically failing and its very hard to fix it while maintaining a working system currently

  40. Robbie Wares | May 15, 2020

    I have been trying to call and talk to somebody since March 27 and I have yet to get through because they didn’t pay me for my first week and now all of a sudden this week I didn’t get my $600.  How is a person supposed to highlight areas being made if they can’t reach anybody    Ever????

     

  41. Steven | May 15, 2020
    Why can't you be like the real states, Kansas? Even Missouri has it together better than you guys. I know nobody is reading this, but I feel it's good to just vent that Kansas is a joke of a state and that you guys have literally just failed, fell flat on your faces. Give all of us our money, and do something rather than making up excuses as to why you fail to function like the other states.
  42. Taxpayer | May 15, 2020

    EVERYONE NEEDS TO STOP leaving messages on here they don't give a s*** about you. If they really did care about you and your families, they would have fixed it. Laura Kelly has food and a roof over her head. I'm a Democrat and a Republican. I vote on the one I feel can do the best job for us. It's her only JOB to take care of us in Kansas. Personally I have given up on Kansas helping me. Until someone comes in and fixes this, it will never get better. That is a Fact! I have said this from day one, Laura Kelly and Delia Garcia should be removed from representing us Kansas. If they would have just told the truth from day one, I could work out with that but NO, they continued with the lies. Ive worked and paid taxes my whole life,  almost 30 years and never had government assistance until now. WOW!!!!  Paid over $500,000 in taxes over the course of my life, also paid into unemployment benefits. Give me my damn money.

  44. Trevor | May 15, 2020
    I recieved my weekly benefit but not the $600 or retropay. Im assuming this is because the Federal Reserve has control of it and decides when to release it. Its messed up for those of us that are way behind in everything in our lives that requires money. Food, rent, credit card bills, medical bills, car insurance, car payment, student loans, TAXES. Which reminds me, the state wascreal quick to snatch $75 out of my bank account when taxes were due. Wish there was a way for us to snatch our money from them. I say come tomorrow those of us that have still mot recieved any pay need to rallytogether and stand up yo this BULLSHIT. I also want to add that several people i know have recieved their wweekly pay and retro pay. 
  45. Madeline Mcmillan | May 15, 2020
    i did not receive my 600 extra today, but my stepmother and her ex employees did , and received 2400 back pay of the 600 from beginning of april we all didnt receive. Stressed worked 15 years at my job, and was counting on that money especially this weeks 600 , to pay bills. My husband left me , so its on me to pay everything.  Please help us all on here.
  46. sad | May 15, 2020
    if i don't pay my rent and every time my landlord calls my phone went to a dial tone i'd be in debt from all the f***ing late fees and out on the street within a month. but when the government (can't?) pay what they're legally obligated to we're supposed to just sit here.. not to mention they haven't even really acknowledged the problem 
  47. Jason Halliburton | May 15, 2020
    So it says I got my additional $600 on unemployment website but my bank account says otherwise, whats going on? Its amazing nobody can get ahold of any of these people and get a response through phone, email, I understand they are super busy but this is a big screw up with so many people not getting anything or partial, or told they got paid on the ks unemployment site but got nothing in their bank, this is a BIG screw up, this is like an accountain screwing up payroll, they would be fired very fast if pay roll was acting like this.
  48. anon unemployed bartender | May 15, 2020

    It will no longer even let me log into my account on the website. The reset password option keeps giving me a "can't reset password, try again" pop up EVERY time i try and i've been trying to call the contact center for 4 days and have yet to get past the robot lady telling me to call again later.. starting to get really frustrated 

     

    also didn't receive the 600 this week and no back pay for the (4?) weeks between march 29th and april 19th

     

    really feeling let down right now they said we'd have back pay last week and instead we aren't even getting this weeks money..

  49. Mad | May 15, 2020
    Does anyone elses unemployment say that the 600$ was added, but hasn't got it? Getting really irritated. 
  50. noa J Rivas | May 15, 2020
    i didn't receive my 600 I really needed what is going on with the u employment center
