How do I talk to a live unemployment agent on the phone in New Jersey?
(New Jersey )
I have been trying to apply for un-employment insurance for 2 weeks now. Spending many hours on the phone only to hear all lines are busy and then I am disconnected. I have tried to apply on line but because I have had a claim last year they will not recognize my user ID and pass word and direct me to call which has been a dead end. I am trying to collect partial un-employment since I have been cut down to 2 days a week from the normal 5 days a week. Your help on this matter would be appreciated. Thanks, Debby
I'm not going to be much help with what should clearly, not be a problem for an unemployed person.
As far as getting a live person on the phone .. I'm hoping some kind soul also from NJ, knows a trick, technique, or a working phone number they would be willing to share about how they got through to a live person at the New Jersey unemployment department.
It is now 2016 and finally someone left a phone number in the comments below and best of all, it seems to be working for most who try it.
