  16. Anybody else having problems with filing for those backdate weeks? I called and got through to someone like 2 months ago and finally got my claim backdated to the correct week. However, I have yet to be able to file claims for those weeks and when I look at my list of weeks claimed, the weeks begin on number 7, which was the first week I was able to claim to receive payment.

    I never got promoted to file for those weeks like the email UC sent out a few months ago. Also, I can't even get through to speak to somebody because I think they are disconnecting me now, since the last 4 times I was able to get passed the busy signal and wait on hold, I was suddenly disconnected after waiting in hold for 30-60 mins.

    It is very frustrating, as I have been still playing catch up on bills, waiting in that money to do so, since I cleaned out the little savings I had waiting those first 6 weeks when the pandemic first hit.

    If anyone knows what to do and can help, I'd greatly appreciate the info. Thanks
