Hello, I am in a bind, I was furloughed from my job on March 17th due to covid-19. I applied for unemployment online of which I was eligible for, but I answered the workers compensation question wrong. I was receiving medical only for a car accident at my previous place of employment, I did not know they meant payments from workers compensation which I do not receive, and now it is sitting in limbo. I can not change the info online, and I can not get through on the phone. I have bills due and can not afford to pay with no income. I still have not received my stimulus check either. I have had no income since March 17th, 2020 and I am in need of help.
I am married with 4 children 3 of which currently live with my wife and I. I have been furloughed as of March 20th from both of my jobs. Was able to pay March-May, and have struggled since. My rent is 1785/Mo. Have not been able to put the funds together for June-present. If there is any assistance out there your help will be greatly appreciated.
I recently moved to Las Vegas and the job that I was supposed to start has delayed the start date. My husband also had a job offer that he was supposed to start on 12/7/20 and they retracted their offer. We are both currently without any income and spent most of our money moving to Nevada with a 1yo. Please help.
