Question about how to apply for unemployment- website or phone?? <Update> My husband's friend, who is a seasonal worker, applies for unemployment whenever he is out of work. He told me that when I apply for unemployment, to do it over the phone rather than online. He said that he doesn't apply online because he doesn't trust it. I would prefer to apply online because calling in is such a hassle. They receive so many phone calls that sometimes they set up a prerecorded voice message that says to call back tomorrow as they are receiving a large amount of phone calls. The friend said to start calling in at 7:55 and keep pressing redial. UGH! That sounds too stressful. Applying online doesn't. Sooooo, what do you guys think? Have you ever had an issue with applying online? Thanks!
