applied for assistance .. lost my job over one month ago

I can identify with this story. I’m experiencing the same difficulties. I have left a message each day with no return call. I have applied for assistance because I lost my job over one month ago and I am having the same issues with the Department of Labor, Unemployment Insurance…no reply, call or email. Even if I don’t qualify for assistance, a response would be appreciated so I can continue researching other options. Unfortunately, there are other families who are in need of emergency assistance, however and fortunately,they have received assistance from SNAP for food, help with utility bills, etc. I have been unsuccessful in receiving any type of assistance leaving me with no income for well over a month. My applications have been unanswered, phone calls ignored as well as emails sent to the appropriate agencies. I am 58 years old with a disability and I have working for many years not needing help until recently and I can’t even get temporary help, not even a response of any kind. The key words are temporary and emergency while I know many people who have had,and continue to have medical coverage and the previous mentioned assistance from various state agencies. This has been an extremely disappointing experience.

  1. I have had my work hours dramatically reduced since March 09, 2020. I have fully exhausted my regular ui benefits and have received a letter if ineligibility for the PEUC. However, I meet all criteria and have filed an appeal and reconsideration. The CARES ACT is an emergency fund intended for those most impacted by covid 19 and the effects it has in each community. In Hawaii I am a Hospitality Hotel worker, a proud Local5 union member and I am in dire need of financial, rental,, and food assistance. My claim has been denied. Yet, 2020 has not yielded a similar income to that of 2019, gained thru my employment. I have relied on these emergency funds and have met all criteria set forth by the state of Hawaii. State, will u not malama na keiki o ka aina?
    Mahalo for all that has been done in the midst of the Global Pandemic.
