I was incarcerated for 27 days, I was getting unemployment from NYS, when I was released I called unemployment to certify benefits. They would only go back a couple of weeks so the lady asked me a few questions to certify then told me to go online after 8pm to claim for the following week , then she says they know i was incarcerated and put me on hold and I got disconnected so I didnt wait until 8 I did it right away then called back. They said I couldnt collect unemployment while i was in jail. So I waited until Sunday to claim benefits again because I wasnt in jail for that week. I checked today and my payment wasnt released so I called again. They said I had call a Dept of labor investigator and speak to them and show them proof of when I was released from jail. I keep calling the number but it goes right to voice mail and nobody is calling me back, and its a fraud investigator. I didnt receive any money while I was in jail though but Im scared that I might get in trouble, I was searching the internet for answers but cant find any. Im scared to death. Could I be charged with a crime if I didnt receive any money and didnt know I couldnt attempt to collect while i was in jail, which the lady should have checked before she certified the benefits for me and told me to do it again later?
