"The great state of Ohio recently announced that it overpaid more than 108,000 unemployment claims from the PUA program. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services explained that 19.7% of PUA claimants in the state received more money than they should have."
About the video:
"ODJFS Director Kimberly Hall explained: “With our dramatic volume, we know that error rates and overpayments are an issue and will be a challenge. But we continue to work on accuracy.”
A statement from the ODJFS stated: “In most cases, the overpayments are the result of claimants not reporting or underreporting earnings during the week claimed. In a smaller number of cases, they are the result of unintentional errors made by agency staff.”
I just hope that they can figure this issue out, as the unemployment claimants had no idea that they were receiving too much in unemployment benefits from the state and should not be penalized or forced to return the funds.
Meanwhile, some states are finally starting to see some positive employment numbers, as their state’s unemployment rate continues to improve.
According to the Department of Labor, the following states have the fastest improving unemployment recovery rates in America.
Both Arizona and Massachusetts are seeing the quickest rate of improving unemployment claims across the country.
Arizona moved 44% from July to August, to hit a statewide unemployment rate of 5.9%.
While Massachusetts saw unemployment rates fall nearly 30% last month, with an August unemployment rate of 11.3%.
Meanwhile, the states that are seeing the slowest improving unemployment rates should surprise nobody that watches the channel.
Number 1 is my home state of Nevada, which featured just a 7% drop in unemployment claims from July to August.
Other slow-moving states include Hawaii, Utah and Colorado, and I hope that my hometown and these other struggling states can receive additional extended enhanced unemployment benefits soon.
Finally, just 8 states are waiting on President Trump’s weekly LWA $300/$400 unemployment benefits, which have seen checks going out in 42 states across the country.
To everyone in Alaska, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Virginia and Wisconsin, hang in there as your enhanced unemployment benefits could be hitting your bank account any day now.
I’m hearing that unemployment claimants in Virginia could see funds disbursed as soon as September 30th, while those in Wisconsin should receive payments before or around Halloween, October 31st.
If you still have not applied for unemployment benefits in your state, get your application into your state’s employment office and get the money that you deserve before these funds run out.
Provide them with your employment history and supporting documents, explain that you are out of work due to that thing out there, and you could be in the pipeline to receive a backdated unemployment check for over $10,000.
To all the gig-workers, self-employed, independent contractors, 1099 workers, even side hustlers and part-time gigs, you can actually collect thousands of dollars in Unemployment benefits through the PUA.
This program was crafted with YOU in mind, so get the money that has already been allotted through the CARES Act to help with bills and other financial issues you may be facing.
Plus, you could also receive the FEMA $1,800 or $2,400 unemployment benefit as well.
Make sure to take advantage of this incredible government program before funding from both FEMA and state unemployment programs runs dry.
Check with your state’s unemployment and PUA guidelines, tell the truth, and get the money that you deserve in your bank account within days of approval."
