Well since things are going sooooo well in the state of Michigan, I got let go from the company I worked for and now have to file for unemployment. What a big pain in the ass that is! But, while in the middle of filling out my claim, my co-worker that got laid off a week before me calls. He's all ecstatic about an error made by the state. He got paid for 4 weeks instead of the normal 2 weeks. Now my question for the board, is this a glitch in the system or did something change? I haven't had to claim unempolyment in 6 years, which is damn good for an electrician in the west side of the state.I'm really hoping they changed the amount, but seriously think this is a mistake. Any thoughts?
OT- Question about YOUR unemployment claim?
I worked for the unemployment office for 2 years and THEY WILL catch it. Bloodsuckers.
Thanks. I told him that he may want to make a phone call. He was so happy he said he was going to use the money to buy football tickets for next season. I hate to ruin his day, maybe I'll call him tomorrow! LOL
"he said he was going to use the money to buy football tickets for next season"
Maybe it's just me, but something just seems a little wrong about that.
This happened at Notre Dame with the banquet caterer who blew through a $27,000 tip. ND sued her on the basis of law of obvious error (or somesuch), and she's going to pay it back over the next 20 years or so. Tell your buddy to call up the office or get a lawyer.
Sorry you got laid off...nothing more I can say.
Can't answer your question, but sorry to hear about the RIF. Best of luck to you.
Thanks for the well wishes. Good news is there are things coming. Hopefully! My little ole town of Battle Creek, home of Kelloggs, actually has work, just not till the weather breaks. We've been very lucky, now it stays that way.....
HUGE glitch... he might want to call and tell them what happened, because they might catch it and make him pay it back or make him skip 2 weeks...
at some point, so he might consider banking that 2 weeks of cash.
if memory serves, a similar error occured in the favor of Peter Griffin who ultimately made it rain from a blimp at the super bowl...so if he plans on distributing that extra 2 weeks at a UM football game, let us know which one.
But we will have to make sure there are no recruits at the game. We wouldn't want to give the "papers" anything to report.
Well, just a second there, professor. We, uh, we fixed the "glitch". So he won't be receiving a paycheck anymore, so it'll just work itself out naturally.
I believe you have my stapler...
i have a question too....
last year for a few months i was also on unemployment....now is there something im suppose to get in the mail or claim on my taxes or do i just fill them out like normal
You'll get something in the mail from the state. I do know that the first $2400 of your unemployment benefits paid in 2009 won't be subject to federal tax as part of the economic stimulus package. That info came with my packet for my claim this year.
i didnt know if i should do my taxes or wait and see if i get more paperwork in the mail
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they have to have the W-2s and what not out by the end of January. Hopefully you know an accountant. It's getting to the point that only they know what the tax breaks are anymore.
My company screwed up some of the catagorizing of my pay dates, so they paid me an extra week, and when notified, they asked I pay it back or get smaller payments.
I got my State W-2 for 2009 yesterday, so they're coming.
my state w-2 today...
