I was laid off by my previous employer and told by HR that I could file for and receive unemployment benefits. I did and a few weeks later, I received a notice that said I had been denied benefits. I appealed with IDES at my local office and contacted my HR rep. She told me there must have been a mistake and that she would personally look into it. Three weeks after that, I received the same notice = denial of benefits. This time I wrote a robust letter detailing my reason for appeal and my conversation with my pervious employer. I took that letter to the Board of Review and appealed for the second time. No luck, I was denied for the third time. I have been out of work for a year now and am burning through my savings. I need to know what my other options are (if any).
