Unemployment claim backlog persists

Thousands of Wisconsinites, including those in Door and Kewaunee Counties, are still waiting for their unemployment claim to be processed. Back in March, the Department of Workforce Development said it was shifting resources to help handle call volumes for those who need help completing an application. That has not proven sufficient yet, and it is beginning to frustrate State Senator Andre Jacque. He says the issue has become priority number one for his staff.

 


Representative Joel Kitchens is also assisting constituents with the issue. Before contacting them make sure you have the following information on hand.
• Your full name
• Your phone number
• Status of your claim (including the application date)
• Reason for your inquiry (checking status of claim, told to call but can’t get through, etc)
