    Saw a KDOL post from last January saying how they were installing this new security feature to stop unemployment insurance fraud.  Didn't work.  This year, I and a number of my colleagues had unemployment claims filed in our names.  KDOL even contacted our company, who reported that all of us were still employed and this was fraud.  Today, a bunch of us received 1099-G forms from KDOL showing that they had paid thousands of dollars on these claims anyway.  At the same time, they regularly deny unemployment benefits because employers dispute the claims.  So how come these were paid out and how millions did Kansas waste paying out all these fraudulent claims?  What a bunch of incompetent government bureaucrats.

    The Kansas Unemployment computer/network system is so…out of date and there are millions of Americans out of work in Kansas-I am one of them.  Those who are unemployed have families to feed and many have lost their jobs and their homes!!  Thousands upon thousands of unemployed people cannot EVER, EVER, EVER get through on the phone lines!!!  The Kansas Unemployment system is so...outdate and doesn't work!!   There are 5 phone numbers to call and I have called and have kept calling ALL of them many, many times ALL WEEK LONG and cannot get through and now there is no automated system you can call to even file your weekly claims or apply for unemployment!!  I have attempted completing their online contact form, but the system keeps crashing and my form will NOT submit!!  Those unemployed have to call the contact center and we CANNOT get through!!  THIS UNEMPLOYMENT SYSTEM HAS TO BE FIXED ASAP-RIGHT NOW SO PEOPLE CAN FEED THEIR FAMILIES!!!!  THIS KANSAS UNEMPLOYMENT SYSTEM IS A JOKE AND SO….VERY, VERY, VERY BAD!!!!  WHAT KANSAS UNEMPLOYMENT IS DOING TO KANSANS IS DESPICABLE AND IMMORAL!!  THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE STARVING AND SOME ARE HOMELESS!!  YOU NEED TO UPGRADE THE KANSAS UNEMPLOYMENT COMPUTER SYSTEM, NOT JUST TO FIGHT FRAUD, BUT TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE ALL THE PHONE CALLS!!  GET THIS COMPUTER SYSTEM FIXED NOW WITH THE MONEY GOVERNOR KELLEY RECEIVED A YEAR AGO!!!  THIS IS INSANE AND CRUEL TO KANSANS!!!

    I can only pray that when the biden administration funds a covid relief bill they do not let the state of kansas have anything to do with it.Let the feds handle everthing.If anything goes through the state of kansas they will just sit on the money for months collecting interest just like they are doing now with unemployment while people are starving and losing everything they have.The state of kansas is 50 years behind in everything they do and just do not care.PERIOD!

    Mr Carmichael,

    I got sick in march and been struggling with unemployment ever since. First time i was denied for 5months and had to fight...Now its impossible to get through and im about to lose everything... Not being originally from Kansas i have no family other then my 21 yr old daughter to rely on for support other then some good friends. Is there anything you could do to give them a nudge. Its been 5weeks with no income. I want to work staying home sucks but im just not finding any...please please do something...im not the only one i know several people that are in the same boat.ThanksJoe Colby3165595519

    I applied for unemployment for being laid off. Only tobe denied for qutting a prior job. I spoke with a woman at Kdol an talked only about my last job. How then am i disqaulifed for a prior job that was not even involved in my claim? I have sent numerous letters for this mistake to be corrected. Yet i am told i have to wait another 6 weeks for appeal! Why do i have to appeal a blantant lie? I want to call it a mistake bit its loke you guys pulled this information out of the air. I have asked for someone to just listen to my phone interview. Which would clarify the mistake. I cant even get my Pua an i am now caring for a family member with Covid. I have worked in Kansas for a long time an itsucks how easily our lives an lively hoods dont matter. Bit when you want your taxes im sure that wont take six weeks. I cant pay bills an i am waiting for an appeal just to have someone fix Kdol mistake? This is crazy how can you do people this way

    I am begging you can you please help the hundreds of us whom have been waiting months for kdol to pay.this is absolutely in sane the total disregard this agency has had for its claimants.I've never in my 57 years witnessed such an agency throw people it's own people away like trash and do nothing to remedy our hardships we are suffering.to make us go months is absolutely unforgivable.a failed old system has STARVED us and let us lose everything and done nothing to temporarily sustain us in our need while they fix the system.it's not only illegal it's immortal and I for one regret being a kansan ever in the time of need.cause here we mean nothing
