How do I talk to a live unemployment agent on the phone in 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
This is not a question I have an answer for, but just questions to make sure you still have a valid ID and password.
What are the dates of your existing benefit year?
Are you certain your first claim has not expired?
As far as getting a live person on the phone .. if you do have an existing and valid claim .. maybe some kind soul also from NJ has a trick or technique to share about contacting them and will post a comment.
